Lumen is a special, quiet, and easy going boy who'll be so happy to hang out with you, watching you do your work, gazing out the window or just snoozing on his bed. He'll only get excited when you get up in the morning, and he knows he can get you to pet him and scratch his butt. He loves being petted and is fully house-trained.

This sweet, gentle boy can be a little nervous when first meeting someone, but soon he's affectionate with almost anyone - it's adorable. Now in foster, he's walking very well on his leash, rarely pulling, and he's not aggressive when he sees new people and animals. He's done great with the dogs in his foster home, and is friendly to them. He also does well when left alone, and is a good boy who can be left to free roam with other dogs. He also has never had an accident inside, will go to the door when he needs to go out, and is always excited to see you when you come home!

This special boy was involved in an accident as a puppy and as a result, he still finds it hard to breathe and eat properly and has some drooling issues. As a result, he eats wet food from a high-rise bowl and needs some facial and floor cleanup, but he's a friendly boy who just loves the attention he gets - and the petting.

Lumen is a chill, low-maintenance boy who will fit well in most homes. He'll probably do best in one without carpet since his drooling can end up on the floor - but it's also very easy to clean. He is Heartworm positive, but all that means is that he will need treatment at APA's expense and he will be as good as new. He would also enjoy a yard to explore but would be fine without one. Ideally, he would love humans who enjoy taking care of special needs pups and who can help him with his feeding so he can gain weight. Come meet this boy, he'll love you!
