Seymour – Adopted

Seymour has a lot of love to offer that special person who sees through his Walter Matthau "Grumpy Old Man" persona. At seven, Seymour is a low-key couch potato. He's perfectly house trained and walks well on a leash, but doesn't respond to verbal commands because of his deafness. That deafness does make him easily startled if he doesn't know you are about to pet him.  For that reason, he would do best in a home with no one younger than 13.
