Woolie's name says it all. We think Woolie is a Newfoundland mix and he looks a bit like a fuzzy black bear. At 12 years, Woolie is a senior dog, and sometimes and in Woolie's case, the seniors are just the best and most appreciative.
Woolie came to us from an elderly woman who has gone into assisted living. The woman obviously loved Woolie and showed it with food, because when Woolie came to us, he was quite obese; hardly able to walk. Woolie now enjoys short walks in the yard where he enjoys lying in the sun or grass and being petted.
Woolie may spend the rest of his days here in our senior "retirement home", but he has such a loving demeanor that we wanted to offer him for adoption to a home that might enjoy a quiet, senior dog. Woolie can mange only one step from the yard into the house, so a ranch style house would be essential. If you are a person who enjoys the love and pace of a senior dog, Woolie might be just the dog for you.
