Adopt Gramps

Male Irish Terrier


Meet Gramps!  This older pup is unmistakable for his sweet, snuggly demeanor and goofy personality.  He's currently living with a foster who is teaching him how to be the perfect dog for his forever family.

Gramps is house trained and learning to like his crate, but he is not a huge fan of it.  When he's not honing his good-boy skills, he loves to be with his people wherever they are.  He also likes stuffed animal toys - his current favorites are a raccoon and an alligator.  This adorably scruffy guy had a rough past and is missing lots of teeth, so the soft toys feel good to gnaw on!

Gramps's ideal home is one where he has his humans around a lot - he loves his humans so much that he wants them around all the time! He would do best in a home without cats, and possibly without dogs since he can be a little iffy with some dogs. He's been around them before, but is just a little particular in his old age. Can you blame him?

Surely, there's a place in your heart and home for Gramps! Apply to adopt him today!
