Who wouldn't want a Doodle Bug to love? I hope you're in the market for a handsome, affectionate, laid-back fella who wants nothing more in life than a big window to look out, people to love and be loved by in return, and a nice long walkie or two every day to enjoy the scenery. Although I am a senior sweetie, I have a lot of life left to enjoy and dream of finally finding a family to love me for life. You see, I was abandoned at a shelter by my previous owner, and it broke my heart. I am a very good boy and didn't understand why, but my friends at Fetching Tails are making it up to me with lots of nice pets and lots of fun walks. I could easily go for a leisurely couple miles, then am happy to settle back in my bed to look out the window when we have gotten our exercise. I previously lived with a child; get along with other dogs after appropriate, slow intros (I would probably do best with another calm dog like me); and am even cat friendly, too! I am also potty trained and do not need to be crated when you have to leave the house to take care of human business - I am happy to keep an eye on the neighborhood by my window until you return! I am a healthy boy for my age - I do have some allergies which my friends can explain, but otherwise I am an easy dog to love, and I have so much love to give. Do you have a big window and a big heart? Then I hope you fill out an adoption application today!

If you'd like to adopt this dog, please get started by filling out a complete application (incomplete submissions cannot be sent.) Please note that while we take time to learn as much as we can about each dog in our care as possible, our bios are written from current observations. Though we do our best to share as much information as possible about each dog we care for, we are unable to make any guarantees on the future health or temperament of your adopted dog. Most dogs in our care come with unknown pre-rescue history, and information pertaining to breed and age are often educated guesses.
