Looking for a special long term foster or adopt situation. 
PLUTO has kidney disease. He’s only a year old... he needs a family with a doggie door and tall fence or someone who works from home that can let him out every 1-2 hours during day... Pluto is GREAT with other dogs and kids.

11/15/18: Pluto is a lanky, goofy, loving boy.  He loves to go for walks and play with our dogs.  He is great on a leash! He loves a basket of toys!  Tennis Balls are his favorite.  

He is almost 60 pounds but is taller than my 87 pound boxer boy.  He also has a smaller 60 pound foster sister mixed breed.  Both of our dogs are older and Pluto has infused our home and our pups with energy.  He will keep you laughing every day!  

I think he will be most happy in a home with another dog to play with who can match his strength and energy.

We have noticed that there are a few things that he might be scared of from his past and we just go with what works for him.  

I wouldn't recommend any small children.  I would recommend teenagers who can help with redirection for his boisterous 1 year old puppy behavior.

I have cat and kitten tested him and he was great until the moment either hissed and then he thought the game was on.  He is too strong and not yet smart enough to not go after the cats or kittens to play.  If there is a cat that ignores him that might work.

Pluto is kept behind a metal gate when we are not home, so that he has access to part of the home and the dog door.  We also keep our dog door open 24/7 for him and he has the run of the house at night.  He only gets info mischief when we are not home so puppy proofing in essential.  Pluto has kidney disease and always needs a dog door open and can live for many years and have a rich fulfilling life.

Pluto has tons of love to give and will be a loyal companion and playmate to his fur siblings.
