Webster's Story

Have a vacancy on one of your couch cushions and been dreaming of a little canine friend to fill it?  Webster might be your guy!  This sweet senior loves to lounge and nap!  Webster spent time in a couple foster homes and both reported that he is a sweet gentleman who loves to take it easy!  Webster can be a little shy at first with new people but once he warms up a little his favorite place to be is right by his human friend’s side!  While Webster loves his naps, he also would be happy to accompany you on a car ride or a nice stroll through the neighborhood!  Webster behaves very well on his leash and is ready to be your sidekick on all of your journeys through the great outdoors!  He does prefer quiet streets with low dog traffic since he is not a big fan of other dogs and can get reactive when he seems them on walks.  Although he does not enjoy the company of other dogs, Webster does love the company of his people and would enjoy being curled up as close to his humans as possible 24/7!  He also hasn’t tasted a treat his doesn’t love!  He will take them all and will do just about anything to fill his belly with a nice treat!

Webster is looking for an experienced owner and a quiet home without young children.  He came to us from one of our partner shelters and we learned that he has a heart condition known as Myxomatous Mitral Valve Degeneration.  This boy will need to stay on medication to help with this and will need to be monitored closely by the vet.  Webster doesn’t let any of this slow him down!  He is still a happy and peppy pup who has so much love and wet kisses to give!  Webster is hoping there is a special person who can find room in their heart to help him manage his condition and give him a loving home to put his paws up for his retirement years!  Both fosters indicated he was a delight to have in their home!  Add to that his adorable little face and those deep soulful eyes, he’s got so much to offer his future family!  Want to fill that vacant couch cushion and shower this sweet senior with love? Stop by and meet Webster today!
