Bayou is a beautiful, loving and calm 8 yo dog. He needs to go to a home where someone is at home during the day and not gone 8+ hours. A home on some land/farm or ranch would be great but a yard is OK too. The ONLY reason I need to re-home him is I need to return to onsite work. He was bitten by a spider when he was a puppy and left his right front leg with some arthritis and not 100% neurological function. He limps but runs and swims like a machine. Fetching needs to be kept to a minimum but he loves it. He needs to be walked and swam (when possible) even if on a lot of land. He will stay with his family and not get exercise on his own. Also, kids need to be older than 7 yo. He has a trim physique as he is fed a raw meat diet.
