My name is Oakley!
I am already neutered and up to date with shots.
Hi there my name is Oakley. I came to rescue from Ohio. I was in the pound after being found living under a school bus. They don't know where I lived before but they were surprised someone wasn't missing me! I've settled into my foster home and I love it here. I get along with the dogs and the kids in the house. I'm about 10 years old, but don't let my age fool you, I have a lot of living left to do! I walk like a gentleman on a leash and I'm just a good old soul. Would you open your house to me so that I can spend my golden years with you? This is a family ready dog!
Adoption fee: $250.
A Poem for a Senior Rescue Dog - Author Unknown
One by One, they pass by my cage,
They say, "Too worn, too broken, too old of age.
Way past his time, he can't run and play."
Then they shake their heads and go on their way.
A little old man, arthritic and sore,
It seems I am not wanted anymore.
I once had a home, I once had a bed,
A place that was warm, and where I was fed.
Now my muzzle is grey, and my eyes slowly fail.
Who wants a dog so old and so frail?
My family decided I didn't belong,
I got in their way, my attitude was wrong.
Whatever excuse they made in their head,
Can't justify how they left me for dead.
Now I sit in this cage, where day after day,
The younger dogs get adopted away.
When I had almost come to the end of my rope,
You saw my face, and I finally had hope.
You saw through the grey, and the legs bent with age,
And felt I still had life beyond this cage.
You took me home, gave me food and a bed,
And shared your own pillow with my poor tired head.
We snuggle and play, and you talk to me low,
You love me so dearly, you want me to know.
I may have lived most of my life with another,
But you outshine them with a love so much stronger.
And I promise to return all the love I can give,
To you, my dear person, as long as I live.
I may be with you for a week, or for years
We will share many smiles, you will no doubt shed tears.
And when the time comes that I must leave,
I know you will cry and your heart, it will grieve.
And when I arrive at the Bridge, all brand new,
My thoughts and my heart will still be with you.
And I will brag to all who will hear,
Of the person who made my last days so dear.
