Pokie is an 8 year old neutered chocolate male. He is up to date on his shots and is heartworm negative. He is good with other dogs and is approved for kids aged 10 and up. He weighs 61 lbs. Pokie is diabetic and partially blind. Pokie is a sweet and mellow guy looking for a family who can take care of him and is committed to helping him with his diabetes. All he needs are his insulin injections twice a day. In return, he will stay close to you and shower you with love.
Pokie has no problem getting around, even with his failing eyesight. He loves to play and is OBSESSED with his "babies". He sleeps with them, goes outside to go potty with them and just loves holding them in his mouth. Pokie is such a sweetie!
Update from Pokie's foster on Aug 28, 2017: This sweet boy has at least one baby with him at all times (literally at all times). Pokie has been patiently waiting for his forever family for almost a year. His partial blindness and diabetes don't slow him down a bit. Pokie adores people, loves to play, is very quiet and has exceptional house manners. He would like a home with a quiet canine companion or as an only doggy child. No kitties.
Update from Pokie's foster on July 22, 2017: He is 8 years young and has impeccable house manners. Pokie runs up and down stairs at full speed and gets around just fine. Pokie begs for his twice daily insulin injections as he knows there's a treat involved. He is super loving and friendly to all people he meets. He is also obsessed with his stuffed animals and sun bathing. He would prefer that any doggie companions be super relaxed.
Pokie has been waiting patiently for his forever family; he knows they are on their way! Maybe it's you?
