  Hi friends Caruso here.  Are you looking for someone to relax on the couch with? I'm a pro at snuggling while binging Outlander with my foster mom,  I'm not picky though, I will watch whatever you like! Intrested in hearing a bit more? Well I'm a mature guy who doesn't ask for much. I really enjoy my meals (who doesn't!?) and being with my people.  I good about going potty outside on a schedule and I don't need much exercise, just a good sniff around when the weather is nice.  I get along great with the other pets in the house, we all keep to ourselves mostly, but I don't bother kitty at all! My foster mom says I'm a very good boy and that I'm quite handsome.  

From Foster Mom
Caruso is a wonderful older gentleman and would be a great addition to a home where someone is home most of the day. He is good about going to the bathroom outside on a schedule,  I let him out every 4 to 6 hours, but he will sleep 8 to at night in bed with his people.  I do put potty pads out when I'm at work and he is pretty good about hitting them but does miss occasionally.  He doesn't like to be in a kennel and will rub his nose raw trying to find a way out.  He will also bark if left alone to long, but will quite right back down as soon as someone is back in the house. He can't see at all so it's easier for him if things don't change location often and can't hear much but can hear loud noises. He is great around my calm animals, both cat and dog, but rowdy pets are too much for him. He hasn't been around kids but I imagine would be fine with respectful ones who mind his age and long back. Caruso is a fantastic couch buddy who is most content when with his people! He will be a great addition to the right family!

An adoption application is the best way to show your interest in an animal.
