Are you 55 years or older? You (and these two deserving dogs) may qualify for a grant funding the adoption of senior pets. Call 330.760.0763 to inquire. This boy should not have to endure this ... what a great dog he was in his photo-shoot! What are people thinking??? Dropped off at the shelter after giving many years of his life as a faithful companion. Unbelievable!
He’s a good boy and he has the typical appeal that all deserving dogs have ... soft fur, sweet eyes, irresistible ears and because of this unfortunate turn of events, some very, very concerned behaviors. Panting and shaking in his kennel, you get the impression that his days are filled with stress. Removed from the kennel and given space and attention, Franklin responds immediately with love. This big boy is nervous and concerned about his future. In fact, at this point he lacks confidence. Once in a house and use to a couch, this senior dog should not have to find himself in a shelter in his golden days.
Note: Please keep in mind that all adoptable pets need time to decompress once they enter a home. For some it will happen quickly and for others it might take a few weeks. You'll want to be understanding of what they have been through and their level of insecurity. We ask that you treat all of them as if they were an 8 week old puppy. Assume they know nothing and begin at step one. You'll soon know what they are capable of and what behaviors you will need to kindly work on with your new family member. It's called commitment! And, that's what these pets want more than anything!
