Meet Onyx (ID5734)

Onyx is a very large, gorgeous ridged lovernose boy. His story is all too common here in Rescue...He was bought from a backyard breeder as a puppy, was part of the family until they had human children and he "got too big" and was then relegated to the backyard only for the past 5 years of his life. He has sores from lying on hard surfaces and lick granulomas from the stress of being alone. But he's a super sweet guy who is adjusting to being inside again. He loves human attention. He's great with other dogs and older kids (because he's 131 lbs, littles would not be a good idea), cats are an unknown. He has a solid temperament, walks well on lead, and is up to date on shots, HW negative and on preventative and parasite free. He will allow someone to give him a bath but is not too jazzed about having his feet touched. He was in a crate early on in his life but has not been since, but we don't think he has to be, he's a mellow guy. Onyx wants a quiet home, a soft bed inside, where he can be loved by his humans. Maybe a nice fenced yard and a deck where he can lie in the sun. A gentle walk everyday. Not too many stairs as he is a senior. If you're looking for a quiet, loving, senior companion, Onyx is your guy! He is currently being fostered in the Charlotte, NC area.
