9 year old Deacon is a very stately senior. He is gentle, social, and respectable. Deacon is very polite with other dogs and cats, he has excellent house manners, and he gets along with everyone. He's truly a gentleman! Deacon entered a local, rural kill shelter as a stray in January 2021. He had a large sheath tumor that AAVA knew needed to be removed. Once funds were raised, AAVA took Deacon into their care and got him the surgery he needed. Surgeons were able to remove the tumor and determined it was solar induced dermal hemangiosarcoma. This type of tumor has a high recurrence rate, so he would need regular veterinary visits to make sure that the tumors, if reappearing, are found and treated quickly. Deacon is a prince of a gentleman! If you are looking for a gentle soul this is the boy for you. He loves to hang out with you and loves playing with his foster brother. He gets along great with dogs, even the testy foster sister. Just gives her the space she needs. He is even ok with cats! Deacon enjoys going on car rides and even loved his visit to the vet. He is always wanting pets and love from everybody. He knows most of the basic commands, sit, down, come, kennel, load up, and go to bed. He is housebroken and crate trained. And he loves his Nylabones! show less
