(semi-near) COLORADO SPRINGS, CO: She's 14 and fabulous!! Senior gal Baby may have a lot of years on her, but she is young at heart and in need of a lot of love. She was recently surrendered to the shelter and the staff is distraught over this elderly beauty living in a concrete kennel. They are asking for help in getting Baby the exposure she needs to find someone who wants to adopt her...something that is very hard to find, as we all know. PLEASE SHARE!! 🐶👍🏽 @arkvalleyhumanesociety wrote, "Baby is a 14 year old #blackLab mix. Baby was surrendered to us and we can’t stand seeing this sweet senior gal in the shelter environment! According to her previous owner, Baby never exhibited any signs of separation anxiety when left alone in the house, she loves tennis balls, she does great at her vet appointments, and just wants to be around her people. Hello, dream dog!
We did get results back from her bloodwork and all looked good. Though she gets around okay, it’s apparent that she has some #arthritis, specifically in her hips and back legs. A home with little to no stairs would be ideal for Baby. Baby would do best in a home with older kids (maybe no toddler-aged or younger as she exhibited some grumpiness towards babies/toddlers). Baby did escape the back yard in her previous home a couple of times, so a home where she could relax inside would be ideal. She does have arthritis which slows her down a bit but it still seems like Baby has got some play left in her!
Baby a big dog with an even bigger heart and a sweet disposition who just needs a loving him to spend her golden years in (and maybe a few tennis balls, too!). Oh and one more thing, we’re obsessed with her cute little white eyebrows that looks like she’s always surprised, total added bonus!" 👵🏽😍 To adopt Baby, please contact Caitlin by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org or calling the shelter at 719.395.2737 with any questions.
