DOMINO (Courtesy Posting)

Domino is extremely attached to whoever feeds him. He follows me from room to room like a baby chick and likes to nuzzle his head against my leg frequently. He also likes to sleep on the couch curled up next to us when we watch TV. We also let him sleep there at night, since it seems to ease his arthritis and help him sleep comfortably. Domino is fine with other dogs. The first day we fostered him he growled once at our lab mix, but since then they have run around the yard normally and haven't had any trouble. He is very considerate of our cats and doesn't chase or scare them. He is also very patient with our small child (age 5) and lets her pet him without jumping up on her. He will bark a little at strangers if he is outside, but always stops if I say his name or bring him back in.

Domino is up to date on shots, neutered, and is heartworm negative. Since he is over 12, he does have minor arthritis, and occasionally needs extra patience or help getting up a flight of stairs. He was very cooperative with getting his nails cut and just needs someone who will be gentle with him. He is 95% housetrained, but you have to let him go outside 20 or 30 minutes after eating to make it easy on him since he is older. He doesn't do any tricks, but he is very attentive and watches people to try to figure out what they're asking him to do. He's very eager to please. He trots around from room to room checking on things repeatedly, which is very cute and protective.
