This clay, so strong of heart, of sense so fine, surely such clay is more than half divine...
Pulled from the local shelter. Clay and his daughter Gemma were surrendered to the city pound by their owners who didn’t have time to take care of them anymore. We believe they were kept inside as pets. Dad was obviously used as a stud.

We are still in the process of assessing Clay’s health conditions. He tested positive for internal protozoa that are currently being treated. He might have skin issues, as well as dry eye syndrome (Keratoconjunctivitis sicca). We will post updates soon. His health is being monitored by a vet.
Even if you can’t adopt Clay, you can still help by donating for his care.
Clay is presently fostered with two adults, two children, and his 3 year old daughter. We live in the city with a fenced in back yard that he can run and play in. I think Clay is adaptable to any situation. He mostly likes just sitting or lying next to someone. He is very easy to please.
Clay is a very loving and laid back dog. He loves to be cuddled and occasionally, he likes to play. He would rather be lying down next to you than chasing balls. Clay is a senior dog and can’t go on long walks. He’s a very large, big boned dog with a short snout and might not tolerate the heat very well. He really is your typical happy grunter, couch-potato type, with short lived spurs of low energy.
Behavior with people:
Clay is very calm and content with adults. Happy-go-lucky kind of dog. Prefers to be a couch-potato more than anything else. Clay doesn’t sweat the small stuff and not much bothers him. He is very laid back and easy going…
Behavior with children:
Good for the most part but he sometimes thinks he is the boss of the kids. We are trying to teach him to be gentle with them. He tends to forgets he is 75 lbs. Clay would be best in a home with adults or older kids
Behavior with other dogs:
Despite sharing his foster home with his daughter Gemma, we think Clay might be better as an only pet. He’s not really attached to his daughter and is very much a people-dog. He gets easily grumpy with other dogs, especially if there’s food around, even when fed in his crate. We don’t see a reason to stress him out by placing him in a home with other dogs. Clay would do awesome as an only pet and would be very happy to have all the human attention to himself.
Behavior with other animals:
Clay is housebroken and crate trained. He also knows how to sit and is eager to try and please. He is not destructive and no trouble at all.
Clay’s best feature has to be his big hippopotamus face and stocky body. He is VERY impressive looking. Pictures don’t do him justice. He attracts all the attention wherever he goes and loves to be the star of the show. At home Clay is such a lover and snuggle bunny. He is content lying next to you wherever, even on the floor, just so he can be next to you. He’s a very easy dog. He sleeps at the foot of the bed and even lays next to the bathtub when someone is in the shower. He loves being your shadow.
