Adorable Caleb Grand

Caleb’s introduction:

My name is Caleb and I am about 10 years old.  If you are looking for a bossy, slightly over weight  little man, look no further, I’m YOUR GUY.  The qualifications I am looking for in a family are as follows:  I want to sleep where you sleep, I am partially deaf so don’t worry about bothering me with snoring etc. I sleep like a brick.  Once you put me on the floor in the morning (I have a bad back and don’t jump down)  I will need water and to go out.  I will also need my eye drops, that I love because I have dry eye, I then eat breakfast and go out again.  After all that activity I will take my first nap.  At around 5 I will be in the kitchen for dinner.  Promptly after dinner I will need to go out (I’m nothing if not regular) and you can forget about the dog door I like to see you open it and will let you know when I am ready to come back in. (I’m mostly deaf but I can bark).  What I will do for you is sit by you on the couch and let you pet and scratch me, I don’t like sitting there alone.  If I know you are home I will meet you with dancing in happy circles and let you pet me and get my eye drops.  Just because I have a few problems and am a little older does not limit the joy and happiness I can bring to your life.   My human sister is 13 and I am the first foster that she has ever let sleep with her and she adores me. 

We don’t know why no one is interested in little Caleb - he is a delightful little guy.  But, as long as no one is willing to adopt him, he’s welcome to stay in our foster program.

Caleb only needs around $100 a month, for his vet visits and meds while he is in our program.  He is looking for five people to subscribe to donate only $20 a month for him.  If you are interested in being one of him sponsors while he remains in our program, you can subscribe via paypal HERE or if you would rather send a check, you can do it HERE.

At this time, Caleb has 0 sponsors.

    Caleb has been my foster for an entire year now. He has only had one inquiry in that time. I don’t understand why so many people want only the young ones. Caleb is a great little guy and could make someone a wonderful companion. He has the cutest personality. Yes he is mostly deaf and he does require daily drops for his eyes but other than that, (well okay he needs more walks to lose a couple of pounds but you try walking 9 dogs twice a day) he is such a love. I have had people tell me they just can’t bear the thought of losing a dog or not having one live 15 more years well there are no guarantee’s no matter the age and if you can find it in your heart to put a little dog that needs a home where he can get more attention ahead of your feelings you should apply to adopt an older deserving dog. We have so many woderful older dogs in our program to chose from.

    That is a great post! We adopted an older tzu from LoneStar and he is the most on schedule of all of our pooches. We named him Sargie because he likes to bark orders {at us humans to let him in the dog door (when we are home and know the fence is secure we let the kiddos go in and out the dog door, but when we leave home we secure the door in case someone might open our fence making the yard not secure… I would die if something happened to our babies), he will let himself out , but he likes us to let him back in, and at his siblings when they are racing around playing because he wants to be involved but is not as fast as they are and usually he is telling them to slow down so he can keep up}. It is too cute! If you want true love and a great companion, a senior dog is a wonderful addition to your home. We have steps so he can get in and out of our tempurpedic bed all by himself, which he does often as he has us (and especially his dad) wrapped around his cute little paws. I highly recommend falling for a senior!

    [...] CALEB GRAND – nice little old blonde boy.  Although in our forever foster program because of his age, 10, he would love a real home. [...]
