My helping promote elderly dogs each week partially stems from knowing older dogs like Gordon here. He has everything - everything - going for him, but sadly life got in the way and his person passed away before Gordon did. Meet this handsome guy then scoop him up while you have the chance.
Just look at this face! Gordon is a handsome older gentleman who has a lot of love to give! He’s a Lab mix, about 10 – 12 years old and he weighs 40 – 45 lbs. He's in good health. Gordon’s person passed away and he was surrendered to a dog sanctuary. Everyone wanted him to have a home of his own again, so Muttville said yes to helping him find one.
Gordon’s foster parents write:
We can see why, as he is incredibly gentle and such a love. He has been great with other dogs, even our skittish little 25 pounder (who does not like bigger dogs), and he seems especially eager to meet other dogs around his size. He has also been great meeting new people, and shows signs of a gregarious Labrador nature despite his age. He is quite mobile and pretty good with stairs, but it might be better if were in a single story home (unless you are okay carrying him when he is tired).
Gordon is the perfect companion for someone who is looking for a mellow, gentle, affectionate dog.
Please email Muttville at email@example.com if you are interested in meeting him or pass this info along to anyone who might be!
