Meet Latimer, HE'S NOT YOUR TYPICAL SENIOR...he's actually a RETIRED SERVICE (SEEING EYE) DOG!
Latimer is an older, mature fellow of 11 (DOB is 10-15-98). After completing service dog training at the age of 2, Latimer spent the last 9 years living in an apartment with a partially blind woman. He was surrendered because his owner was having a hard time finding people to take him out so he could relieve himself three times a day.
Latimer has been to the vet and all is well except his liver numbers are higher than expected so we are doing additional testing to see if he has any medical issues that are cause for concern. He does have a few lumps and bumps; typical fatty cysts for a dog his age.
Latimer's been with our family for 2 weeks now and made himself right at home. He does have minor storm/firework anxiety- his 2nd night here we had a thunderstorm and I woke up to find him hiding in a corner in the bathroom. His SO said she had a blanket in her closet for him to go to during storms. Other "fun facts" about Latimer:
All in all, he is a GREAT dog and EASY to have around (definitely my easiest foster to date).
Loves to go for a ride in the car- rides well and jumps in and out on his own.
Pretty content to lay anywhere.
He's on the deck but has his head on the patio door frame so he can monitor what we are doing inside!
