Hello... I'm Denzel Pawshington. I'm ten years old and as sweet as can be. I love lounging around the house and cuddling with hoomans on the couch for TV time. I'm no beggar but I will gladly take food from your hand (treats or table food). I don't bark much and I'm house trained. I do not like the kennel (bad juju) but I have been left to roam the house and since I'm not a puppy, you don't have to worry about me destroying anything or getting into things I'm not supposed to. I'm working on being a good cuddler in bed and I have come a long way since my foster mommy picked me up from the shelter. I was really skittish then, now my tail goes crazy when people are around me. I am ok with other dogs but they need to be mellow like me. I do not like dogs in my face. My foster brother is a puppy and he is much too much for me. I tolerate him but get grouchy when he climbs on me or doesn't let me sleep. I don't have much of a prey drive so foster mom thinks I'd be ok with cats if they leave me alone but she doesn't like cats so I haven't 'officially' met any. I'm quite healthy and spry when I want to be. I do have skin allergies and arthritis and am on some vitamins and medicine to help me with that. Mommy says that costs around $35 a month or so. I have been known to snap at people when I'm not on my medicine because it makes me super uncomfortable. I also have Lyme's disease, but I'm asymptomatic and this doesn't affect me at all. I don't need any medicine for this and you would probably never even know I had it. Foster mommy thinks I'm kind of like a cat. Just leave me be and when I am ready to trust you, I will come to you for all of the attention. You will know you have my heart when I show you my belly. I need someone patient and willing to give me my space and let me make the first move. Once I trust you, I will be your permanent shadow and follow you to the ends of the earth. Any other questions, just send my foster mommy a message. Hope to meet my furever momma and/or daddy soon!
