Jack had 14 teeth extracted shortly after arriving at Forget Me Not, and is pretty much toothless now. He eats canned food (he prefers pate style rather than chunks) well, with a little fish oil for his only current supplement, and he loves soft, small treats. His senior blood panel looks great, with no areas of concern. He is housetrained, though needs to go out fairly frequently, so will enjoy having a dog door to his fenced yard, or a person home with him who can take him outside regularly. Jack does well on leash, and has been good with other dogs and non-reactive to the kitties he has met.
Jack does well even on stairs - he has a little set of stairs to get up to his shelter kennel, and has learned where they are and how to use them - but since he can't see, you will need to keep him on leash for several weeks and teach him the layout of your home so he will know where stairs and other obstacles are located. He doesn't let his lack of vision bring him down - he enjoys everything in his day, from pets and cuddles from the volunteers, to exploring new areas of the dog yards, to meals and treats. Jack always greets us with a smile! He has lots of life left to share his joy with you and your family, and deserves a great home that will have fun showing him all sorts of new adventures. Let's find Jack that home where he can have new experiences that make the last years of his life the best years! Even just setting up a "treat scavenger hunt" in your own backyard would be a wonderful gift for Jack... and while giving a blind senior these moments of joy, you just may find yourself filled with unexpected joy of your own.
Jack comes with a 30-day money-back trial adoption period.
Spay/neuter, worming, microchip and all age-appropriate shots are always completed before placement, and are included in the adoption fee (suggested minimum $50, or SENIOR for SENIOR - adopters over 65 may name their own adoption fee); more gratefully accepted!)
Can't come to Republic? Don't let that stop you! We have monthly transports to both the Seattle area and Spokane, delivering adopted pets to their new owners. If you can add a little to your payment to help us cover our volunteer driver's expenses, that would be great!
