How to Adopt

Dino has the ability to hear aliens walking around on the moon. His satellite shaped ears give him super sonic hearing and allows him to detect extra terrestrial life across the galaxies! NASA even just hired him for a top secret mission. Dino may be one of the most smartest, most handsome, and the most regal dogs we have ever seen on planet earth. Your job – (if you choose to except)- is to love him unconditionally and give him the best life that he deserves! Who knows, he might even share some top secret space information with you.

Dino is hospice due to the following medical conditions: limited mobility & severe arthritis in his hind end.

Here’s what his foster has to say!:

Dino is such an affectionate and handsome ragazzo, who is always smiling and showing off those giant fuzzy ears of his. While he might look like a wolf, he’s really just a (very) big cuddle bug who loves to be cozy and enjoy la dolce vita with his famiglia at home.

I’ll admit that the hospice label was new and a little intimidating for me too, but what you’re getting with Dino is a relentlessly happy and expressive pal who just happens to be a bit clumsy sometimes. Care should be taken to keep his walks quite short with his weak back legs, because loves going outside and he’ll try to keep going! And while he’s not as spry as he used to be, that doesn’t stop him from jumping up on the couch or into bed, or even doing little bunny hops when he’s really excited (mostly dinner time). I try to get him to slow down a little, but he has quite the indomitable spirit!

He has quickly made my home his own and is very gentle, though he might bump into things since he’s not as agile as he used to be. He hasn’t disturbed anything he isn’t supposed to and I have yet to hear him bark at all. The few times we’ve run into others, he is very friendly with both humans and dogs. And I’m not making this up – I’m pretty sure one of his favorite things to do is watch the news on the couch. One time he went over and hopped up just in time to catch the closing bell of the New York Stock Exchange, though I strongly suspect his portfolio is mostly chicken jerky and Greenies. According to my doggie cam, this is how he passes the time when I have to go out and run errands.

If you have room in your home and a lack of stairs, Dino really would make an amazing companion. He is completely unaware of any limitations and I can assure you that his optimism is contagious!
