Casper is very well named and a senior with spunk. He is so friendly! He's loved strangers who come to his foster home, their neighbors, employees at the pet store, maintenance staff - well, anyone he meets. After he moves in with you, he'll always want to lean on you, and if you sit down on the floor, he'll be rolling in your lap in seconds, hoping for petting and cuddles. He's so grateful for attention and love that his tail will wag every time you look at him.

This gentle, outgoing boy is really very chill. He is playful at times and loves going on short walks, pulling a bit at first and sniffing everything. Then back home, he relaxes, chews his bones and goes off to snooze. He's also friendly with the other dogs in his foster home, and he has been amazing with visiting young kids. He's a house-trained boy who does not like crates, but does very well free roaming at night and when his fosters are away. He is healing nicely from surgery to remove a mass. He also is heartworm positive, but all that means is that he'll need a couple of months of rest during treatment, at APA!'s expense.

Casper will love a leisurely home with parents who are with him a lot. And he'll love kids and a dog buddy to cuddle and play with and a backyard to roam. Come meet him. He'll want to be your best friend!
