Poor little guy. Older than dirt and lands in the shelter. Not sure he can hear much of anything. While I was taking the photos, I was terrified he'd jump out of the sink and like, break in half.

He got a bath, and is tucked in for the night. He really enjoyed cruising around and sniffing in my back yard. He wouldn't come to me so it was a very low speed chase around the yard before I got him in.

Don't take my photo!

Wait, this is my good side:

I like scritches under the chin.

No, this is my good side:

Can I go take a nap now?

He actually really enjoyed his bath and even played a little 'towel monster' game! I'll take some more photos tomorrow when he's a little more rested.

Poor ol' guy...he doesn't know yet that he's landed in a great spot...he'll figure that out soon enough though!

Jeanine, thank you soooo much for giving this guy a place. He is such a sweetie and so deserving.

I loved the low speed chase comment. He doesn't run very fast.

He's cute! Not a peep all night in his crate and he's napping quietly in the office with me this morning. He's great in the car, too!

Sometimes I have to sit and wonder...where the hell are your people??? Of course, if they didn't care enough to come and get him from the shelter..they they don't deserve him.

I always wonder if these old guys belong to old people who pass away....

I always wonder the same thing..or maybe their owner had to enter assisted living and the kids weren't willing or able to take on a Senior Dog...but still...how do they end up at a public shelter being called a stray???

Seems most folks think "it's just a dog" and out they go... >(
I sure hope biting is allowed at the 'bridge' as a great many deserve it. :cuss:

Transferred out of Clackamas. He was impounded as a stray and transported to DRAW yesterday.

Yep DRAW and Cross our Paws pulled and transported 6 of our smaller/older/special needs dogs over the weekend.

Nigel arrived at our shelter as a "stray" - I always find that fascinating considering he doesn't move very fast and no one came to reclaim him.

Jeanine, being the amazing rescuer she is...saw him and agreed to rescue a very old man so he would have a warm and wonderful place to retire.

People will ask, how much more black could he be, and the answer would be...none...none more black.
