Wag of the Week

Hi folks. Though this little guy is not straight out of Snow White, his name is nonetheless Happy. (That said, DON'T, whatever you do, ask me about my best-selling sci-fi knock-off, "Snow White and the Seven Worfs!") (with possible spin off as Woofs). Anyway, we need to find this adorable fella a new home, because his person is moving to an assisted living environment, and, sadly, she cannot take him. At only about 15 pounds, he is a Shitzu/Poodle mix who is also a senior, at 9-10 years old. Happy's pretty set in his ways, but that doesn't mean they're challenging ways. For instance, he likes cats, and also has used a doggy door his whole life – thus, he never has accidents in the house. Adopting an older dog takes a special person, because these babies are near their span, though these little ones can live, with proper care, to 16 or more. Too, some are on medications, though Happy is not. As you probably know, puppies are generally popular, but older dogs sometimes are not placed easily. So, who wants to be a hero to a senior citizen? (Move over, Citizen Kane; enter Citizen Can-ine...)

AARF rescue has other dogs and puppies available, in addition to our features. We hold adoption fairs at Petsmart on Powers Saturdays 11-2: 2965 N New Center Pt., Colorado Springs, CO 80922.
