MEET BUCKY!
This adorable, affectionate, and vivacious guy is named Bucky! Bucky is an 11 year old epic mutt. He looks almost like a large Beagle/Pug? Perhaps a little Bulldog thrown in there? Whatever Bucky is made up of, he sure is handsome! Bucky was surrendered to Philadelphia's animal control shelter after living with his previous family for 10 years because they were moving and could not bring him along. Bucky lucked out though and was rescued by a City of Elderly Love foster family!

Bucky was quick to show us his goofy personality and really doesn't even try to hide it. His favorite things to do are snuggle up on the couch with his foster family, continue to break his record on how fast he can destroy a stuffed animal, and singing you the song of his people! Bucky has the vocal characteristics of a Beagle and will let you know when he'd like something, whether it be dinner, a walk around the neighborhood, a bathroom break in the yard, or just a romp around the living room! While he does love to talk, Bucky is pretty low-maintenance when he comes to dogs. He can happily entertain himself with a toy and is a great mix of medium-energy and lots of chill. Bucky has met many people - all shapes, sizes and ages - and adores everyone he meets! He's also currently living with cats and another large dog. He really seems to enjoy meeting new dogs and would likely do well in a multi-pet home.

There's no hiding the fact that Bucky is a bit chunky. He was surrendered to the shelter overweight so we got him checked out at the vet to make sure there wasn't any underlying issues causing the weight, but it turns out that he was likely just overfed. He's now on a healthy diet and loves to go for walks so is working to lose those unnecessary pounds. He also loves healthy snacks like vegetables so that helps! Bucky has some age-related cloudiness in his eyes, but it causes him no issues!

Bucky is available for adoption through City of Elderly Love! He is neutered, vaccinated, and microchipped. Interested in meeting him? Visit www.cityofelderlylove.org to complete an online adoption questionnaire or email us at info@cityofelderlylove.org!
