In shelter Dog

Alpharetta, GA, 30009
Pet name:
Hi, my name is Luciano, but my foster mom calls me Louie. Im thought to be between 8-10 years old. I was found as a stray. Im housebroken and dont need to be crated. Im very sweet and considered a "Velcro" dog. I have had some medical issues that you should know about. First off I walk funny. One of my front legs was broken and Im bow legged in my back legs. I had a hard time walking and stairs are still a bit of a problem. X-rays done at vet didnt show much considering my age. Im doing much better now thanks to medications Ill always need. Taking walks is one of my favorite things to do now. My biggest issue is Chronic Ulcerative Paradental Stomatitis(aka CUPS). It was really bad for foster mom and me. I apparently have a reaction to plaque forming on my teeth, and get these painful blisters in my mouth, and I cant eat. At 13 pounds, I cant afford to loose any weight. I also cant afford to gain weight because of my mobility. There is no preventive treatment for CUPS. Consequently, Ive had several teeth removed. So foster mom just monitors me. I can give her some helpful clues too. I may seriously end up with no teeth. I do eat very soft food only.

Let me tell you what I need for my forever home:
I need a home with another nice dog for companionship. I dont like to be alone.
I can be barky, but mostly Im whiny. Im not in pain, but sometimes just need to whine. Shared walls may be a problem.
Im a picky eater, so someone who will work with me.
Im needy, but in a good way. I just want to be by you as much as possible. That includes sleeping in your bed.
I do have this weird quirk where sometimes, when Im being petted, Ill yelp and scare you. I havent been hurt, but I have been in the past.
I do like older children, especially dog savvy ones
Most importantly, someone willing to understand CUPS.
My foster mom says Im quirky, but wonderful. I hope someone will see me in the same way and consider adopting me.

An Adoption Application for this dog can be found and submitted online.
