I'm Doc. I'm a calm, gentle senior who loves to be petted right under the chin. I love to curl up and take naps on the couch. I don't mind being in my crate and only use the bathroom outside. I make funny noises when someone comes home because I'm so happy they're back. I prefer to take it easy and don't like too much exercise. I also don't like going up and down stairs, although I will if I have to.  All I need is a warm blanket to sleep on and a human who will cuddle with me on the couch.

  

We have a special request, for a special dog.  We knew that our old guy Doc had heartworm disease when we pulled him from the shelter.  After further veterinary checks, we have discovered that he also has dermal hemangiosarcoma -- skin tumors, which were removed when he was neutered, but which will shorten his life.  We also think he is deaf, or nearly so.  On the plus side?  He has plenty of energy, a good appetite, and so much love to give.  Doc is easy going and good with other dogs, adorable, cuddly, and deserving of a wonderful life and good care for as much time as he has left.
 
Since finding Doc an adopter in these circumstances is not going to be easy, we are looking for a "hospice foster."  That means that we will commit to managing and paying for his vet care and providing high quality food for as long as he has.  You commit to loving him, enjoying him, and getting him to his vet appointments.

We welcome support towards Doc's care.  Please considing sponsoring him if you are unable to adopt or Foster.  Do you have room for a nice older man in your life?

 
As a POPB adoptable, Doc  is eligible for 5 free obedience classes with his  new family! We have adoption events every Saturday from noon to 4 pm at Petco in Gainesville, at 6869 W. Newberry Rd. (near the mall) and at the Millhopper Petsmart, 4119 NW 16th Ave. We also have special events regularly. Please visit our Facebook page (facebook.com/plentyofpitbulls) for information about upcoming events.
