Wonderful senior dog alert!!!!

This sweet boy found himself in the middle of nowhere surrounded by nothing but fields of grass.  He had nowhere to go and clearly had no direction.

He landed on Facebook and a kind person decided he was worth saving (when so many didn’t) and went to find him - he brought him home and listed him everywhere he could think of as a lost dog but no one responded.

As time went on, his rescuer decided he’d like to keep him but his other dog has decided that is not going to be the case as he doesn’t like Al and it’s not really safe for this old man to stay there.

The community has contributed funds and he got all his vetting done - he was treated for heartworm, he’s had his vaccinations, he’s been neutered 

He’s estimated to be approx. 10 years old nd is ready to just settle down in front of a fire or in the sun and snooze - get up, go for a walk, eat and repeat again the next day.   He loves to ride in the car and going into the stores he’s allowed into.

He is fine with other dogs but let’s make it a dog his age - not a puppy he has to put up with!  Or maybe he can be your only dog and get all the attention?

Paws New England is a foster-based rescue - our dogs reside in various locations throughout the south and New England.  

Adoption donations cover pre-adoption vet costs (including vaccinations, spay/neuter when age appropriate, and heartworm testing/treatment when necessary), a microchip, and transportation to New England if necessary.

Donations for our young, healthy puppies and dogs support their fellow canines of advanced age or suffering from injuries and abuse whose donations are reduced but whose veterinary costs are typically much higher. We appreciate your understanding that your newly adopted dog will help others in need.
