Please contact Hope Rescue if you can offer this lovely 'young at heart' veteran a foster or forever home. He needs to move from his current foster home through no fault of his own.
Arthur is a “mature” gent but is living proof that “age is but a number” – he may be 13 years old (and only have one eye) but that is no hindrance for this sprightly guy! He is currently in foster in Cardiff and this is what his foster Mum has to say about him: "Arthur loves to go on adventures, but is also just as content falling asleep on the sofa or in his den. He enjoys a bit of company and some fuss but also likes his own space as well, and is happy to fall asleep in his own bed or area. He has been learning how to play fetch and really likes someone to play fight with him at times.
Due to his age and sight Arthur is a little nervous and struggles with the company of other animals. He therefore needs to be an only dog. He also startles easily so cannot be rehomed with younger children. Ultimately Arthur is looking for a retirement home in which he can enjoy his remaining years. He loves peace and quiet and will happily sleep all day, but will eagerly play and show the energy of a pup when out for a walk!"
Hope Rescue often takes in older dogs with medical problems like Arthur that need veterinary treatment. Its ethos is never to turn its back on a dog in need, irrespective of age, breed or medical condition.
Vanessa Waddon, Hope Rescue's Chair of Trustees is appealing for a home for Arthur: “We urgently want this distinguished old gent to find a home as soon as possible. He’s been through a lot and really needs a family to call his own.
"Older dogs often get overlooked but Arthur is still young at heart and would make a loving and loyal companion for someone who still enjoys a walk but with a less active dog. He's a great little dog with a big heart and at his age, he should be settled in a home where he can live out his remaining days in comfort."
