Blessed is the person that earns the love of a senior dog.
Hello everyone. My name is Grandpa Earl and I’m a foster with Legacy Boxer Rescue. My face may be white but I have a heart of gold. I’m an old fella and don’t require a lot. All I need is a warm bed to sleep in, a comfy couch to nap on and plenty of love from you. Oh, don’t worry, I have a lot of love to give in return. I love to snuggle. And I’m the perfect size! Currently I am just under 35lbs.
As I mentioned, I am an old fella. I don’t know exactly how old I am but I’d say I am over 10. Don’t let my age fool you because I still have plenty of spunk! Well, in between my naps, of course. I’m in a foster home with two other Boxers and a cat. I get along great with all of them! Even the cat. In fact, I get my daily exercise by chasing the cat around the house. Now, don’t get all worked up because the cat and I are really good friends. It’s just a game we play with each other. I’m really dog and cat friendly. My foster Boxer brother and sister still like to wrestle and act a fool but I mostly stay out of it. I’m retired so I let those youngins’ run around and act crazy.
Did I mention I’m a member of the Legacy Silver Boxer program? There are some special benefits that come with adopting a member of the Legacy Silver program. There’s a link on the website that will give you all the details.
When I came into Legacy’s care I came with a few health issues. Hey, I’m old. I’m allowed to need a little extra medical attention. I was really underweight and I had some yucky worms in my system. We got the worms all cleared up and now we are working on getting rid of the heart worms and putting on a little weight. I won’t be ready to go to my fur-ever home until we get the heartworms under control. However, that doesn’t mean I wouldn’t like to meet you.
Did my handsome face catch your attention? How would you like a little old man named Grandpa Earl hanging out with you? Reach out to my foster family and let’s set up a meeting. Until then I’ll be napping on the couch.
