Beluga is a senior gentleman that is looking for a nice place to retire! He will love a quiet home where he can hang out and lounge to his heart's desire. At his age, he is looking for someone who just wants to co-exist and share the space with him. He's leaving the rough and rowdy playing for the puppies.

Beluga wants to sniff around, explore, chill, and see what life is like. He loves taking daily walks around the neighborhood and on the trail. And puzzle toys keep his mind busy.

"Beluga loved doing the puzzle toy since there were treats in it. He relaxed a little when I gave him a rawhide and took his time eating it. He's a sweetheart!" says his friend Karen, who recently took him on a field trip. He doesn't want to share his toys with other dogs, so he will prefer to be the only pet in his new home.

When the weather is hot, Beluga loves to climb into the car and feel the cool wind over his ears. He can also learn plenty of new tricks when there's food involved! He's very food motivated and loves to snuffle out treats.

This senior boy is ready to retire into the lap of luxury. Come meet this lovable boy!

INTERESTED IN FOSTERING?

This pup is currently located at our Town Lake Animal Center (1156 W. Cesar Chavez, but use 1200 Reserve Road for mapping purposes). We'd love to show them off to you! To learn more about them, head in any day between 12:00PM - 6:00PM. We are open 7 days a week! Go to Building B and ask to speak with a Matchmaker about fostering this pup. You will sit down and discuss all we know about them and, if it's a good fit, get to meet them then! Please budget for a wait time unless you arrive right at opening as we cannot dictate walk-in traffic (wait times tend to be highest in the evenings and on weekends). If this pup ends up not being the best fit, we have so many other pups in need that we can suggest for your household on the spot!

Come meet your new best friend
