From the Foster:
Doc is an older gentleman who was found as a stray in Kentucky. He enjoys a relaxed lifestyle of long naps, snuggling with his people, car rides, and hanging out at the park/ballfield. He does well with my children who are of Jr High age, but I would not recommend him for younger children. He does like to express his opinions at times, but most of the time he is simply a sweet boy. I have noticed that the longer we have had him the more trusting he has become of our family. He is a senior dog so his cateracts make it a bit harder for him to see and his hearing is showing a bit of loss, but he gets around just fine.
He has come a long way since we brought him to our house a couple of months ago. First, it was discovered that he had five large stones in his bladder and they were causing him quite a bit of discomfort. They were successfully removed, but he will require a prescription diet the rest of his life to ensure that will not develop again. He also had a tumor near his back end that was also removed. We are hopeful that it will not return, but there is no guarantee. He is feeling much better these days and a bit more energetic. We have seen him become more playful and it is obvious that since his surgery he has been enjoying life more and more. Doc would love to spend the rest of his life with a loving owner who would give him lots of love and affection.
All dogs are in individual foster homes throughout the Twin Cities.
