Wilson is a 10 year old lab (mix?) who weighs 85 pounds. This very nice boy is waiting to be someone’s best buddy. Wilson has been through a lot of loss and because of this, his family wants to find him a committed and loving home where he can settle in and relax.

Wilson has lived with other dogs and done well with them. He is good with cats; almost too good as he can be “too loving” of them and that can annoy a cat. Wilson loves children but one would want to be sure they are gentle with him as he has some arthritis and needs to be treated with kindness and respect.

Currently Wilson is fine to stay home while his caregiver leaves the house. He is taking a combination of prozac and trazadone which no doubt has helped him with the moves he’s had and with a new routine. Perhaps over time, in his new true forever home, Wilson can be weaned off the medications for anxiety. That would be wonderful! He will need to continue the anti-inflammatory he is taking for his arthritis pain. Wilson’s adopter should be willing and able to continue his veterinary care for the rest of his days.

Wilson recently enjoyed an outing to the beach. He is inquisitive and loves to get out and explore. Wilson can pull on leash when he’s excited so his adopter should be able to manage his strength. It would be great if Wilson could get out for daily walks . It is so much fun to watch a dog enjoy themselves.

Because he’s such a social boy, he will bark when he wants to be with you. He can manage a few hours between potty breaks, but it’s no fun for anyone to have to hold it for too long! At this time Wilson can still manage stairs. We think Wilson sounds like a terrific dog who is going to make a great addition to a home. He has so much love to offer and imagine how happy he will be when he realizes the home his adopter gives him is for keeps!
