If there is someone for everyone, is there someone for Howie? Howie is happiest out on a walk, as an outdoor companion, or napping in a sun spot. Howie gets along with cats and dogs as long as they understand he doesn't want to play or cuddle. He is a perfect size at 15 pounds, and is about 8-10 years old. BUT Howie does not like to be pet! A scratch behind the ears is fine, but no touching below his collar.
Howie is well mannered on leash and easy to leash up, housetrained and knows how to sit. Because he is very food motivated, Howie could easily learn more basic commands. Howie‘s sweet personality makes him an easy dog to share a house with. He loves to be near his people and responds happily when you talk to him.
Howie just has touch sensitivity issues; h
e lets you know when he is uncomfortable by growling at you and air snapping in a brief but startling moment
. He also has a history of painful ear infections but right now his ears are fine. Because of his sensitivities, he is a better fit for an experienced adopter in a home with no small children who might not understand a dog that does not want to be pet.
Grateful Dogs Rescue incurs substantial veterinary and other expenses in rescuing our dogs. In order to recoup some of these costs, we request a tax-deductible donation for each adoption. The suggested donation for Howie is $150.
If you are interested in adopting Howie, please complete our online adoption application at
. One of our volunteers will get back to you. Adoptions are local, confined to the SF Bay Area.
