BOSTON, MA: 10 year old Grant is still looking for love! Grant has bounced between living situations the past few years and it's made him feel a little insecure with new people and situations. Understandably. He is also completely blind which adds to his vulnerability. But with a little patience, Grant warms up quick! And there's nothing he loves more than a trusted lap to lay on. The only issue is Grant hasn't been able to find anyone who is even just a little bit patient enough to give him his big chance. PLEASE SHARE! 🧡🧡 @lasthopek9 wrote, "Grant has had a hard time getting adopted because so many people see his quirks as 'flaws.' Grant is a 10 year old #poodle mix with the cutest, crooked underbite you've ever seen! He's totally blind due to cataracts, but is an independent dog and, once he explores a new place, he gets around without issue.
Because he is #blind and has been bounced around in recent years, Grant has pretty substantial trust issues. He will nip if he isn't given the chance to warm up to a new person or when he's spooked. To help him acclimate to new people and environments safely, he is now muzzle trained and working on his 'stranger danger' with his foster. He's made amazing progress in his training sessions! His foster has been able to host many guests over in the last couple of months and Grant always ends up snuggled up in their lap. He just needs to know that he's safe. After that, he is such an affectionate, goofy pup who just wants to be loved and snuggled (preferably upside down on your lap!) at all times.
Small dogs are fine for Grant and he has recently been fine with calm, large dogs, too. (But no cats or kids at home for this guy.) He has a mild heart murmur and might be developing arthritis, but he doesn't currently require any medication. He needs an owner who understands his quirks and will continue working on his training. Grant has been waiting a long time for a loving forever family.

"Since we brought her home in April, Pandora has continued to open up and show us more of her very silly and playful personality. She loves snuggles and will clamber onto us whenever we are sitting or lying down--we didn't know we were signing up for a 80 pound lapdog, but we absolutely adore it!
We've discovered how much she enjoys toys and clothes, so we've spoiled her with lots of both, which she loves showing off as the grand old lady she is. She recently started rolling over and asking us to scratch her belly, and we heard her bark for the first time a couple weeks ago! Her perpetual wink and sweetness has made her lots of friends in the neighborhood, and many of the local kids recognize her and say hello to her out on walks.
We found out recently that she'd lived most of her life (9 years!) at a shelter--this broke our hearts, and she definitely got extra cuddles that night when we got home. We are over the moon to have her with us now, but so sad that it took so long for us to find her. We would encourage anyone who is considering adopting a senior dog to go for it--it's been so endlessly rewarding for us, and we couldn't imagine our lives without our Panda bear. (Her Instagram is @pandoras.barks -- she has brought us so much happiness!) xoxo,
Connie & James" ❤️ #seniordog#adopted#happilyeverafter#fairytale#adoptdontshop
Don’t his eyes look eerily human here? Like if your grandpa suddenly turned into a dog, it would be Jacob. That snowy muzzle, the lips you imagine must cover dentures like soft flappy curtains. But this guy is no geezer. He’s spunky, energetic, has a childlike sense of wonder — and playfulness to match. Eight years old, 11 lbs, and pure sugar, Jacob is a winner. He’s great with other dogs, very happy, and would do best in a chill medium active home. His foster mom says: “Jacob is the sweetest pup anyone could ask for. If it seems like everyone says that about their foster, WRONG: Everyone says that about Jacob. This is one pup who just isn't like all the other chihuahuas. Jacob has the perfect temperament for most any lifestyle. He can run, or he can walk, or he can sit on your couch and hang, whatever. Any activity level, any personality type, he's into it. Jacob gets along great with dogs and humans alike, and is always dog-smiling, wagging his tail and ready to give kisses! And good news for apartment-dwellers: Jacob's super quiet! Even though he's small, he's not yappy in the slightest (I've actually only heard him bark once). In summation, Jacob is the cutest, sweetest little dog there ever was and I can imagine no better dog for a first-time owner, as he's not only super low-maintenance but totally adapts to any lucky companion's lifestyle and personality..” Interested in adopting?
