Adoption on hold for medical reasons

Brian is a sweet, gentle, quiet older guy who is fairly spry for a 15 year old pup. He was uprooted from his home of many years before coming into his foster home about 2 weeks ago, as of May 2, 2022. He lives with several other dogs of varying sizes and 2 cats and is excellent with all of them. BrianĀ is still adjusting to his foster home and will often circle rather than trying to go somewhere with purpose. He will get up when he smells the fresh air of a door being left open and when he smells meals being prepared. He goes with the flow and his potty habits are very good but not always perfect if left alone for several hours, but improving drastically since becoming used to his new environment. At this point, he needs to be carried outside, but his foster mom is sure he can learn to find his way out there himself and will start guiding him out and back in on a leash to teach him this.
Brian had a very good first check up at the vet. His bloodwork and body condition were both very good but he needs to have a dental and his left eye needs to be removed because the pressure is very high from glaucoma. Brian tested positive for Lyme Disease and will be on an antibiotic for 3 weeks to treat that. Fortunately, he was neutered earlier in his life so he has no health issues that often accompany intact dogs.
Brian does not need a fenced yard but he seems to like being outside, so a slow walk or two each day on a leash would be perfect for him.
Brian will be having his dental surgery on June 1st and his enucleation (eye removal) on June 20th. After he recovers from his enucleation, he will be ready to go to his new home in early July.

Brian is not currently available for adoption for medical reasons.
