Petry is a simple dog - all he really wants in life are good snacks and a comfy place to nap. He likes everybody and doesn't ask for much at all. He is a great companion for lounging around the house or puttering about the yard.

The shelter he came from estimated him at 8yrs old, but we suspect he could be a bit older. He is missing most of his teeth, which makes it more of a challenge to estimate age. He is hard of hearing, but hand signals or gentle touches work well to communicate with him. Petry has old man knees and hips, so he takes daily arthritis meds and will need a home with limited stairs or a baby gate to keep him off of bigger staircases - he will attempt to go up to check for snacks and may end up falling back down.

Petry likes other dogs as long as they don't jump on him or bully him. Same goes for kids...ones who drop a lot of food are his favorites, of course. He also gets along fine with cats.

Petry is crate trained but does not need one. He just naps when left to his own devices. He is about 97% house trained. On very cold or wet days, he sometimes has accidents in the house, but can you really blame him for not wanting to go out in that weather??

Petry is up to date on vaccines, neutered, microchipped, and current on flea/heartworm prevention. If you'd like to add this gentle, older guy to your family, please apply!
