(near) DENVER, CO: If you have a heart for super-senior dogs, 15 year old Dave is in great need of your compassion! This little ol' fella is looking for a home to provide him the most comfort possible for his end-of-life care. While he does have some health needs to be monitored and pain management to be addressed, Dave is looking for lots of love more than anything else. His #qualityoflife is most important - something that a shelter cannot provide and, sadly, where he is currently living. Dave needs somebody who is willing to pick him up from the shelter and love him forever. He is NOT a candidate for transport. PLEASE SHARE!! @arkvalleyhumanesociety wrote, "Dave is a 15 year old #miniaturePoodle / #Schnauzer mix who was brought to us as a stray. Because of that, we know very little about Dave's past, but he came to us with some significant health issues.
Since being under the observation of our vet, it has been determined through running blood work that Dave is in early stage #kidneydisease, early stage #liverdisease, Pannus in both eyes and has periodontal disease. Because of these medical issues, we recommend further evaluation with your own veterinarian. Dave has very limited vision and diminished hearing but he does respond to snapping or clapping and will easily follow a clicker. We are happy to provide the adopter with at least two weeks worth of a liver supplement and eye drops for the Pannus. We would really like for this sweet pup to live the rest of his days in a loving home, not a shelter.
We think Dave would do just fine with dogs or cats, as long as they are respectful and not too much for him as he's a fragile dog at his age and current health. As you would expect, Dave is sweet and content just curling up in a bed and napping. Also, as you can imagine with all of his issues, we haven't had a lot of interest. We are looking at this as a sort of hospice home, where Dave can feel safe, secure and most importantly loved, until he crosses the Rainbow Bridge." To adopt Dave, please email email@example.com to set up a meet & greet ASAP.
