Susie's Senior Dogs

LOS ANGELES, CA: Handsome Bocelli is having some tough luck. Over the past several months, this super-sweet fella has been to countless adoption events (including the giant Best Friends LA event this past weekend) & each time he walks away without a family of his own. People always think Bocelli is cute, but then when they learn that he is 10 years old they are no longer interested. Bocelli is a low energy guy who loves to cuddle and hangout with people. He's also very dog friendly! He will make a wonderful addition to your family...if only given the chance. PLEASE SHARE! 🐾🖤 @Dogswithoutborders wrote, "No luck yet on Mr. Bocelli, not one interested adopter. He was rescued on February 27th and he's been to countless adoption fairs every weekend since. When people asked about him at the event this past weekend his age turned a lot of people off, which was a huge bummer.
Bocelli was surrendered to the shelter by his family. He is an 10-ish year old blind Tibetan Terrier/Lhasa mix and weighs about 25 pounds. He really is a special dog and we are hoping to find him the best home and family ever!
Bocelli's personality is super #lowkey, he’s a lazy old man that just loves to be near someone or know someone’s around. He’s always looking for a toy on the ground and when he finds one he falls asleep with it in his mouth! He’s such a cuddle #lovebug and has the cutest Ewok sounding cry/bark when he’s looking for you. He gets along well with other dogs and all humans, but he just wants to be loved!
Bocelli is great on a leash, but hates crates! He is completely potty trained and neutered. Bocelli is overall healthy. His left eye is more sunken in than his right one, and he requires eye drops, but he’s not keen on receiving them. Doctors have looked at both eyes and there is the option of having them removed but it is not necessary, therefore we have opted out of doing that procedure. Besides his eye and a few missing teeth, he is a very healthy dog!
@dogswithoutborders does a foster-to-adopt trial week. Adoptions are #California based owners only." To adopt Bocelli, please email crystal@dogswithoutborders.org to apply! ❤️ #seniordog #losangeles #adoptdontshop

@raclevine

@susiesseniordogs What is the status on Mr. Bocelli???? Please let us know!

@e_swati

I wish people who abandon their senior dogs get abandoned in old age homes by their family. Then they will understand the pain of being lonely and confused

@e_swati

The families who abandon their dogs should be put behind the prison bars or in the kennels and they should be the ones dying in the shelters instead of these furbabies who only knows the language of love. I feel the family who abandons their senior dog will get a new puppy and later in his senior years, will abandon him/her as well because according to them the cuteness faded away and they cannot take care of the senior.

@andrea_barendregt

Dogs without borders....but you must be in California to adopt....hmmm a bit misleading. I would love to adopt but I guess I can't.

@sailorxmo0n

i wish i had room for him at my apartment :(((

@janemwl

Seniors are the best!!

@bellapey

@bevbivdevo Instagram won’t let me. Have you filled out an application to adopt? If approved, message me, and I can coordinate with you!

@topknotextensions

I saw this post on @kristin_ess as well. I live in TX. If you can’t find anyone local for him... I will figure out a way to get him to us. I ❤️❤️❤️ what you are doing.... it literally brings tears to my eyes at the thought of all of these older dogs not having homes😢

@ashlynn.bk

I wish he was here in CT!

@wagesdul

Where is he located?

@fifirescue

That’s not old for a small dog, come on people! 🍀🐶🍀

@thesarcasticfeminist

If Bocelli isn't adopted soon, will you open up to surrounding states (i.e. Oregon) if the adoptive pet parent is willing to travel to CA to meet Bocelli, then fly with him to his new home?

@thegirlwholetthemeatcake

@barbcollinsfti how can anyone walk away from him?!

@pixysticks06

Senior dogs are the best! So loving, so happy to have a home! I have adopted 3 seniors and it has been the best thing I ever did💕💕💕
