An elderly dog, said to be an impressive 17 years of age, was recently surrendered to the Hoke County Animal Shelter in Raeford, North Carolina. The dog, who is described as “wonderful!” is justifiably scared and confused now that he is locked away in a kennel run – away from everything that he once knew and loved.

SENIOR ALERT! 17 YEARS OLD! This boy was surrendered and he’s wonderful. He is scared, but SOOOOO SWEET! He needs a rescue angel to let him live the rest of his time here. He is in great shape! You would never guess he’s that old. PLEASE SHARE. He likes other dogs too!
This elderly dog (Don Juan!) deserves to be in a home, not at a small, packed dog pound. Please help Don Juan find a retirement home by taking a moment to share his adoption information.
