You might remember Buster, the dog in need of eye removal surgery. If you don't remember, check out the last pictures posted here for a very graphic refresher. This poor guy was in need of our help, and a new start to life called for a new name. Buster is now our gentle giant Fezzik (if you don't get the reference, look it up, buy the book and buy the movie. You won't be disappointed). Fezzik is a little bit of a mess right now with some neglected old man health issues, including (obviously) obesity, but with just some time and patience we'll get him healthy and happy once again. Meanwhile, Fezzik is being enormously tolerant of having his eye and surgery site treated, and being helped to his feet when he needs to go outside. He is in pain and nervous in his new environment, but he has adjusted better than we could have hoped for and has been nothing but sweet and gentle with his many foster siblings. Despite his mobility issues, Fezzik is housetrained and enjoys his time outside. He is great with other dogs, cats, and every person he's met so far. We know that it might be a long shot for this big guy to get adopted, but our hope is that Fezzik finds a home with a family who will love him forever. If not, he'll spend the rest of his days being spoiled and pampered in foster care. Either way, we are so happy that this good old boy is safe!
Good Old Tails Senior Animal Rescue is a non-profit organization dedicated to saving the lives of senior dogs and cats in the Southern Pennsylvania/Northern Maryland areas. We believe that senior animals deserve loving, caring homes where they will be taken care of the rest of their days.
Good Old Tails Senior Animal Rescue was founded in 2015 by a small group of animal lovers. Years of rescue showed us that the senior demographic in shelters is often the most overlooked and highly euthanized. These animals are discarded because of failing health, new pets in the family, a lack of time for attention and care, and countless other reasons which Good Old Tails finds deplorable. Pets are a commitment for life, not until they are an inconvenience. We are dedicated to saving as many senior dogs and cats as we can, and providing them with love and care so that they can live out the rest of their days with dignity and happiness. Some of these animals may never leave our rescue, and their foster families will be the ones to say the last good-bye. Others will go on to find families of their own. Whatever the outcome, we have made the promise to them that they will never again be alone.
