Our sweet (and sometimes a lot grouchy) senior citizen, Angus would be great for a human senior as he prefers hanging out with adults or older, considerate kids. Like many seniors, his sight and hearing are not what they used to be, but he is an affectionate little guy and loves to just cuddle up on a warm lap, except for when he doesn't. He is quick to let one know thathe no longer requires attention. Angus is quiet and does not require much exercise, so he would be an ideal apartment dog. He is good with cats and small dogs. He is house, leash and crate trained and he travels well in a car. Bonus - he has hair rather than fur, so he is hypoallergenic. Special needs: Angus has lost all of his teeth (thank goodness, as he does use his mouth to express displeasure) so he requires a soft diet.
If you are interested in one of our dogs, please go to our website, www.orphandog.org. Many questions will be answered there. All Orphan Dogs are fostered in private homes by volunteers who graciously take time from work and home life to care for our orphans. We do not have a facility, and most dogs are transported to our scheduled Adoption Events!
Our van is limited on space and because of this sometimes dogs will get time off if the van is overfull. Other arrangements may be made for meeting a dog the dog if circumstances prevent you from being able to make it to events. Remember again though that volunteers foster dogs in their spare time so we encourage you to try to attend the events.
If you are local to Lake County, we do make arrangements to meet dogs here in town. However, please remember that most of our dogs have been in our shelters for weeks before we pull them. We take the dogs that have not been adopted yet. If you visit the shelter, you'll get the dog before I do! The fee there is far less as well.
