Looking for a home

This is Besta:

He is a four year old mix breed dog (hound and ??).  He is good with other dogs, cats and kids.  He loves the dog beach, going on walks, playing fetch.  He is not so fond of water and he is scared of thunder.  He is house trained and can "sit", "laydown" and "stay".  He favors his back right leg because of an accident a few years back.  It doesn't hurt him...he doesn't whine or anything when you touch it.  When he's hanging out at home he'll hobble around on three legs but when we take him to the dog beach he runs just fine on all fours.

But we've learned over the last 18 months that city living just isn't his style.  He would rather have a yard to run in than chilling out in an urban 2-bedroom apartment all day.  Hanging out for long hours with Winston while mommy and daddy are at work is boring to him.  We do not want to just pass him off to strangers...we need to find him a home where he'll be happy and loved and taken care of.

I realize we don't live near most of you...but we'd be willing to travel quite a distance to make sure he ends up in a home where he'll be loved.  We end up in Utah at least once a year and we'd be happy to fly or drive him out the next time we come out.

If you could open your heart and home to this lovable, floppy eared, long tongued, happy-go-lucky doggy, please let us know.

I wish we had an actual yard for him to run in :( Arizona ins't ideal for doggies unfortuantely.

What a hard decision to make; it's very selfless of you to want the best for him even though I'm sure it's heartbreaking to see him go to someone else's home. I hope you find a very good home for him where he'll be happy and can race around all day.
