Quiet and reserved and so very loving, Almond is a low maintenance senior and a total cuddle bug. He may not have many teeth left, but he does has irresistibly soft fur, which is perfectly suited to Almond because he's a big fan of back scratches.

Almond lives with three little doggie foster siblings and does great with all of them. Even though he loves taking naps, he prefers to stay close to where the action is, hanging out with his people and doggie pals. But his favorite place in the world is definitely snuggled in your lap.

Almond is fully house-trained and does great left home alone in his crate after a few minutes of protesting that he can't go with you. Not wanting to cause too much trouble, he quickly curls up and goes to sleep until you're home again.

Almond will make a wonderful low key companion to a home with people who will give him plenty of attention. In return, he promises to keep your lap warm and love you forever. Come meet this sweet guy!
