Medication helped manage Harry’s condition. Unfortunately, his teeth were also in poor shape, requiring surgery to remove 16 of them. Soon after, he was ready for adoption.
“Older dogs are a little bit quieter. An older animal already has years of experience. I would know exactly what I was getting, with no surprises temperament-wise,” said Robert.
“An older dog doesn’t need hours and hours of high-energy activity. My knees are pretty good, but not that good!”
True to the loving nature of senior pets, Harry wasted no time becoming a devoted companion for Robert.
Harry is an absolute pleasure to have around. His personality is a wonder as well. It’s amazing how they have their little emotions,” said Robert.
“In my social circle there are lots of pets and he likes them all. He is able to mind read for sure. I only have to think ‘car’ and he is at the front door ready to go.
