11 year old • Male • 22 lbs
Gromit has a beautiful, soft, and fluffy black coat of fur. He is usually found with a wide-open smile and a floppy tongue!
Gromit is an incredibly sweet and gentle dog. While he is a bit older, he has lots of energy for play, and especially loves long walks and playing fetch! Nothing makes this guy happier than a day filled with chewing on bully sticks, his favorite squeaky duck toy, and snuggling with his human companions. Gromit is crate-trained, house-trained, and walks well on a leash. His foster mom is working on tricks like "Shake."
Gromit is up-to-date on vaccinations, not, and heartworm negative. However, Gromit has presented with several health issues. He is developing cataracts in both eyes, has a chronic cough, and a low-grade mast cell tumor on his left flank. It is currently being treated. Gromit needs someone who is able to handle his extensive healthcare needs.
Gromit was brought into a local shelter as a stray.
