Karick is about 10 years old and unfortunately was given up due to his inability to climb stairs and his owner's health. He arrived in CCK rescue weighing 40 pounds; way too much weight for his little frame. We have found Karick IS able to climb short flights of stairs such as those leading up to a porch. He is losing weight and gaining mobility thanks to the work of his fosters. 

At his age, Karick does have some other health issues but they are very manageable. Skin issues or allergies are being managed with a daily oral medication (Apoquel). He does need to have his ears watched closely as they can be prone to infection. They just need to be cleaned regularly. He has a bit of a grin which is permanent for unknown reasons.

Karick loves people, loves going on walks, still gets the zoomies and would make anyone a great companion. He seems fine with other dogs but does have to voice his opinion to them when he's out for a walk. We don't know about cats and we would not recommend him to a home with very young children since he is an older dog.

He is neutered, up to date on vaccinations; has had his teeth cleaned and checked; is on heart-worm preventative and is house-trained. His adoption fee is $150 and he is available now with the understanding he needs to continue to lose weight until he gets to about 25 pounds.Karick
