About Lewis

Hello! My name is Lewis. I am a senior dog who lost my owner and am now looking for a forever home. I am full-grown and weigh about 24 pounds. I've been told that I am a little "set in my ways" which means I can be grumpy at times but that I can also be very sweet and affectionate. I love walks and sitting by the back door watching the birds and squirrels (otherwise known as doggie TV!). I also seem to really enjoy a nice bath and am easy to groom if you are patient.

I've been told that I am a special dog in need of a loving and patient home with dog savvy people who will take the time to get to know me and gain my trust. I have come a long way since first becoming part of Almost Home but I need to continue working on my socialization skills with people and other dogs. I don't do well at shows so people do not see what a good dog I can be. But if you see me with my foster mom, you know I am a very sweet, loving, and handsome guy who has massive potential to be a great dog. The ideal home for me would be one with adults and older children (if any at all). I would not do well with young children. I do get along with my doggy foster siblings but high energy dogs make me nervous so any canine companion would need to have a calm temperament.

That's the basic information about me. And since you clicked on my picture and read my bio, here is what I know about you: you are willing to look beyond a dog's age and get to know them for who they are. I know that senior dogs are often overlooked at adoption shows. People want younger dogs who are going to be around for a long time. And to that I say, don't forget about us senior pups! We still have a lot of love to give and make good companions. After all, age is just a number.
