My story

**Courtesy Post** Kirby needs a new home. His mom passed away recently. He is just the sweetest little dude and I don't imagine he has many years left (he is almost 16!) although he is in good health so he could be a record breaker! He’s partly deaf and blind but, as you can see in the video, it does not slow him down. He will come with his arthritic chews and a year of flea prevention. Our home has 2 big dogs and 2 kids. Kirby would love a calmer home. He needs a securely fenced yard. You must also have a good vet reference. I want to place Kirby in Texas only. There is a small rehoming fee. If you are interested please email Kirby’s owner and she will email you an adoption application. Email: merritt.laura@gmail.com
