Who wants to give Mr. Fluffy Meadows his well deserved retirement home?
We don’t know much about him, other then he was driven in the trunk of his owners car to a TN shelter, one of the “nicer” sanctuaries that PAWS has worked with. This dollface spent the next 1.5 years in the shelter, until Paws New England stepped in.
Fluffy is now fostering in New England with 4 other small dogs. He truly is not fazed by them at all, even when they are a bit cranky with him when he gets too close.
This boy has learned quickly to rest in a crate or in dog beds around the house. However, he does not like to be disturbed when he is snoozing. At his age, he has earned the right for for uninterrupted naps.
Fluffy sleeps well through the night and had only a couple of accidents in the first days in his foster home. He quickly adapted to his new routine.
He thoroughly enjoys his strolls in the fenced in back yard, and he very nicely ignores when being talked to…selective deafness, not “true” deafness.
We did learn that Fluff has allergies that can make him a bit itchy. Right now it is well controlled with a monthly injection. He is also is on pain relief meds for suspected spinal arthritis. There might be a need for him being on one or both of these long term.
Soo, what type of retirement home would be best for this precious senior boy?
-A quiet 1 or 2 person household, no children, as he can be a bit grumpy when he doesn’t want to be bothered.
-A home where he can chill out on some soft, cozy, plush dog beds.
-Preferably a house with a fenced in yard where he can enjoy some outside time.
-A place where he can enjoy some good food, but not too much of it (he is on a diet to help lose a little bit of weight).
-An abode that will give him the opportunity to play with a varied assortment of squeaky toys.
And most important, a safe and secure environment where he will be given TLC and loved like a family member.
