Are you looking for your next crush? Then come meet this sweet gentleman! It's hard not to fall in love with Crush, because wherever you are, he wants to be next to you or in close distance. If you place his dog bed next to the desk while you are working, he lays there for the day. If you are watching TV, he will want to jump on the couch and lay beside you.

Crush does great with other dogs of all ages, and also kids, but would prefer to have a home without those strange felines. Crush has some hearing problems in his old age and he tends to sleep most of the time, but he loves the distraction of kids. He rolls around for belly rubs when kids are in the house, and he makes a good napping companion. His foster is working on some hand signals, and he would love someone patient enough to take things slower when waking him up to make sure he doesn't get startled.

Crush is content to roam the house when his humans leave for errands, and prefers to be left outside the crate - but he doesn't need one because he is housetrained! He knows to stand at the back door when it's time to do his business, and if you have a doggie door, he is smart enough to use it! He is also happy to chill in his crate during the night.

When he meets new people or when he has a squeaky toy, Crush will wag his tail with glee! The bigger the squeak the bigger the tail wag! Crush also loves a good shower. He will lay down so the water runs down him while you wash him. He has a small limp in his front left paw, but with a little bit of rest and some short exercise he might become more comfortable.

Crush seems like he's been through a lot in his life, but he hasn't let it get him down, and just wants someone to love him for who he is. Come meet this sweet boy and let him be the next crush in your life!
Come meet your new best friend
