He is very Scared!
Very Confused!
Meet Princey... Only 10% vision left, came riddled with fleas, and in need of a full dental cleaning.....That we have taken care of for him.
What he needs next is going to be an heroic undertaking...
A Home!
Here is where Princey finds himself. 15 years old....
Yes !
you read that right 15!
And without a home to call his own.
Princeys owners had to give him up, and going to a shelter I can guarantee would not fair well for this senior. I mean, who would take on and adopt a 15 year old dog? Dogs like him shut down and eventually probably will be euthanized or sit waiting. Hes no puppy, or even a young dog. Most people want youth.....and Princey unfortunately does not have that on his side.
We at Paws Above want to give him a chance, and believe that someone out there will have the heart to welcome Princey into their home.
Here is an honest reality check,
He probably will not live another 5 years. We are looking at few years left in this poor boys life, and I hope that those are spent in a warm home, and not a shelter alone and unwanted.
This takes guts to do.
To fall in love,
to enjoy and care for a dog
to pet them and hold them....
knowing you will only do so for a short time.
Putting your own emotions aside, to give him the time of his life is the ultimate rescue sacrifice.
Ill be honest, this is one of the hardest but most selfless things a human can do.
