Foster Home Feedback 

*  Colton is a senior dog and requires pain medication to manage his arthritis and hind end weakness. The cost is about $100 per month. It is also recommended he stay on a daily joint supplement like Dasaquin or Cosequin.

He is also currently on medication to keep him comfortable while he gets comfortable in a new home. The cost of this medication is about $30 per month.

12/8/21: Colton has been at our house for a few weeks and has been a true gentleman.  He was nervous the first few days but then settled into a routine with us. Fortunately, my husband and I both work from home so Colton is not left alone very often.  When we do leave, he is never kenned as he just needs a soft bed to sleep on.  Since he is in his elder years, stairs are pretty difficult so he stays on our main level and we built him a ramp so he can go outside with ease.   Laminate or hardwood floors are scary for him (he sometimes loses his footing) so we have a patchwork of area and scatter rugs that allow him to navigate the house.  He gets along well with our two resident dogs although they wish he was a few years younger so they could convince him to play.  Colton has a very gentle soul and a glimmer in his eye that suggests he might have had some mischief up his sleeve in his younger years.
