I am a very sweet, gentle and loving boy.  My family brought me to a shelter when they were moving so I would love to have another family of my very own for my senior years.  Seniors are wonderful companions.  We are calm and loving and don’t get into trouble like those silly youngsters.

I don’t demand a lot of attention, but love it when you want to give it to me.  I love to be near you and will keep you company anywhere you go.  I will lay at your feet and be your perfect companion.

My foster family has been helping me lose weight.  I had a few extra pounds on me when I came to them (well maybe a lot of extra pounds).  Once I lose the weight, I think I will be able to move around a lot better.  I do have a few issues with my eye, so foster mom puts drops in it feels much better.  I will need to have those the rest of my life, but I am such a good boy when she puts them in.

I am just a perfect, wonderful boy.  How can you ask for anything better?  Why don’t you come and meet me and see for yourself?
