Home all day and want a buddy to keep you company? Well Grits is the guy for you! He loves being around his people. Whether it is under the covers on the couch or outside sunbathing, your company is all that matters to him.

Grits is the laziest dog when you need him to be but also enjoys going out for walks when you want that fresh air. He is good with kids and other dogs but also really enjoys his alone time sleeping on his warm bed. Grits is heartworm positive, but not to worry! Once he is adopted, treatment will be provided to him for free by APA!

If you enjoy a relaxing night in, Grits would make a wonderful addition to the family because he is happiest when he's with his people. Come meet Grits and let him be your companion for life!
Come meet your new best friend
