Indi is an amazing senior soul. He is a loyal love bug that gives new meaning to Velcro dog! And he is an incredibly smart guy, his superpower is to accurately predict where you are walking or planning to walk, and Indi will stand between you and your destinations. Indi is extremely loyal and will follow you around everywhere you go. When you sit down, he will go to sleep. He is an awesome power napper! Indi can sleep for hours at a time, and this is his second super power. Indi’s favorite sleeping area is a large orthopedic bed.
When Indi first came into foster care he had a lot of pain and had problems walking. He is now on pain meds and has a very adorable swagger. He also has spinal stenosis that causes hips to sway when he walks.
Indi has a heart murmur which is a leaky valve. He came to us with a cough caused by his heart murmur, and so he is on meds that are helping his heart (and that will need to be maintained for the rest of his life). Indi wears a belly band because his heart meds make him thirsty and we think the pain meds keep him from feeling when his bladder is full. Indi is full of personality when he comes inside from potty, he demands a treat for going out and getting his belly band on. Indi is so smart, that when he goes out to potty at night, all his foster dad has to do is shine a flashlight and he will come trotting back to the house!
Indi does do well with other dogs but we think he would also love to be in a home where he’s the only dog and the center of attention, so he can soak up all the love you can give him!
A little bit about his background: Indi’s family moved and left him behind. The neighbors were feeding him before they called for animal control. Indi ended up in a vets office, who reached out to rescue. We were told that indi was blind when he came into rescue; however he can see just fine, although we do think that he is deaf.
