This past week, two geriatric dogs showed up as strays at PACC. Neither was redeemed by owner. Both have advanced age related health concerns, but still respond to and enjoy attention. Does anyone have the room and resources to provide hospice to either of these boys?
The first is an intact male Dalmatian who is likely deaf. He does have severe chronic ear infections and is weak in the hind end. He is sweet as can be though. After he was helped to his feet, he followed the rescue coordinator around, his tail wagging. He is social with and tolerant of other dogs. A423266
The second is an intact male Chow. He has some vision and hearing impairment. Because of this, he flinches if approached before given an opportunity to smell you. He hasn’t made any attempts to bite, just backed up. Once allowed to sniff, he’s a sweetie, too. He really enjoyed being petted, and leaned as far as he could into some scratches behind the ears. He isn’t as dog social as the Dalmatian, but hasn’t been aggressive, either. A423204
Are there people out there able to help this two oldies but goodies? Old dogs need love too.
