I would like to welcome the newest senior member of the RAGOM family, Walker!  I was going to wait until after his vet appointment tomorrow to introduce him but he's such a sweetie I wanted him to get advanced airtime!  Walker is an 11-year-old puppy, seriously!  His age says 11 but his body says 7, but with the manners of an 11-year-old! Walker was surrendered because hisprevious owner increased his work hours and Walker was being left alone for too many hours each day.   You can tell this boy was incredibly loved -how many unloved dogs make it to 11 and are this healthy?!?  I want thank his previous owner for doing what was best for Walker.

Walker was a regular at a doggy day care before he came into RAGOM and it shows because he met my crazy pack with NO issues!  Not a growl, no raised lips, no hackles up, NOTHING!  What a great puppy!  After they were done meeting outside we came in and he found the toy box and rifled through it until he found exactly what he was looking for.  It's like he's lived here his whole life.  He also hasn't had an accident which is phenomenal because my baby girl, Millie (09 291), has been getting over a UTI which means accidents in the house.  He smelled them and walked away!

He met the neighbors 2-year-old today and was so excited!  He gave her a sniff and wagged his tail.  Then he moved onto their itty-bitty little 8 pound dog and was so very excited to find a new playmate!  Roger thought he was pretty cool as well.  I think he's going to be a hit in the neighborhood!

He has had several meals now and has no issues with eating with a pack... I have a small kitchen and there were no issues, however he wasn't too fond of the extra veg I put in bowls as treats...  So, what does Walker need in his furever family?  LOVE and TIME!!  He needs someone who is going to love him for the rest of his life, which based on the fantastic shape he's in at 11, could be another 4-6 years!  He needs a family that is going to have regular and predictable work hours and not leave him alone for longer than a typical work day.  He would LOVE to have another dog to hang out with, but if you don’t have one that's not a deal breaker.  He is fine with kids and hasn't paid much attention to my cat.  He doesn't need a fence as he has great recall (found that out the hard way!). Lets be honest, it's hard to give a senior dog a chance.  We want our dogs to live forever and when we adopt a senior there is a chance that forever will come sooner than we'd like.  After I had to put Hatch (09 196) to sleep I swore I'd never foster another senior but how can you not love those faces?!?  And how can you not love the fact that they have so much life experience that all they want is for you to love them furever?   I think that if you even meet Walker, you won't be able to say no... so if you're ready to give a healthy, full of energy, 11-year-old senior a shot then Walker is your dog!  Contact your placement advisor and let them know you're interested in this puppy!
