Eddie is a wonderful, but older, dog who needs a loving home with someone who is willing to help him with special needs. He's 13 years old and very loving, but he has a level 2 heart murmur which has been stable for three years, thanks to some medication. He also is picky with his pet friends - he gets along with most cats and dogs, but will occasionally antagonize cats. Eddie is a loving dog and a great companion who prefers snuggling on the couch over a day hike, maybe he would feel comfortable on your couch?

We want to rehome him because one of our cats has developed a chronic illness, and he has started to antagonize her. He has been through Dumb Friends League twice, and we don't want to bring him back a third time. Unfortunately, we do not want to sacrifice the life quality of our other pets in order to accommodate him, so we would like to find someone who is interested in providing him a forever home.
