Available Dogs arrow TEX (17-034)

Tex17-034TEX (17-034) is a 5 yr old big boy with an even bigger heart. He wants to be by your side at all times; laying under your feet, curled up next to you on the couch, or sitting on the front porch with you. Tex’s ideal day would be to sleep in, then go for walks, car rides, and be with his people. Tex sleeps soundly through the night, either on a dog bed or IN bed with his people. He gets along great with other dogs but we feel he would do better as an only dog as he loves to be the center of attention. He has no interest in cats. Tex needs a fenced yard, and at least one walk a day to keep him on his weight loss plan. He came to GRREAT suffering from skin allergies but a change of food, regular baths, and some Tex17-034_2medicine from the vet have gotten him on course. He loves baths and will lay on his back soaking up the rubs. Tex doesn’t like a crate and will try his hardest to get the door open, but he’sa counter-surfing junkie (particularly when cornbread is involved) so he must be confined for now when his family isn’t home. Because of this, we recommend him to a family who will be home most of the day. We’re working on this behavior and he has gone 3-4 hours alone, staying out of trouble as long as there’s nothing on the counters and no toys to destroy. Through no fault of his own, Tex has been passed through 4 different homes, including his foster, and that could be why he wants to be the center of your world; He deserves nothing less than that!
