"Hi everybody! My name is Lobo and I am 90 lbs. of pure love. My foster mom calls me her "gentle giant" because all I want to do is be cuddled and loved. I personally don't think there is anything wrong with that! I love to get belly rubs and kisses on my forehead. And if you stop petting me, I'll give you a gentle nudge with my paw or put my head on your lap. Communication is key in a good relationship!

Besides cuddles, my other favorite thing is taking walks with my foster mom and foster brother. I may be 10 years old with some arthritis in my back legs but that won't stop me! I am really good at taking walks and can even run if you are into that (my foster mom is not but that is okay- I am easy going). I sometimes forget how big I am though and pull on my leash when I see a squirrel or another dog, but my foster mom is helping me with that. I find that soft spoken words and positive confirmation works best for me, so when I want to chase a squirrel just tell me to keep walking and direct me forward. Super easy, right?!

Boy, as I write this, I can see why everyone who meets me loves me! I am so sweet and loving. I really don't ask for much, just a loving home where I can relax and be their gentle giant :)

I am a couch potato and I am good with cats, dogs, and people. I know basic commands and walk pretty well on leash. I would like a calm home and at my age, would not love to be with small children. I am a sprite senior and I take medication for my arthritis. I also would rather not have stairs to climb. I could handle an apartment, if you take me for walks and provide me with a comfy couch. I just need a place to chill and be loved unconditionally for the rest of my life.

I am currently being fostered in Portland, OR
