Elderly 19-year-old dog homeless after death of owner

An elderly dog, 19 years of age, finds himself homeless in the twilight of his life following the death of his owner. The senior dog, Caillou, is getting shuffled between foster homes and the rescue group that he is with is hoping that he can find a permanent forever home to spend the remainder of his life in.

Paws NY writes:

“Caillou is a super senior in every way! At 19(!) years old, he is a very sweet older gentleman, who still has a lot of pep in his step! He loves going for walks, and will explore for as long as you let him. Some of his favorite things are classical music, and the cozy feel of a nice sweater. Once he gets to know you, he will curl up in your lap for a nap.”

Adding that the senior pooch is struggling with anxiety:

Sadly, Caillou’s elderly guardian and lifelong companion passed away, and he’s understandably taking a bit of time to adjust to new surroundings. Because his guardian was with him 24/7, he is dealing with some separation anxiety. He would love an adopter who has a flexible schedule, or at least the ability to spend some extra time to hang with him.

Caillou has some health issues, he takes medication for seizures and his eyes aren’t what they used to be, but he is otherwise in good shape for his advanced age.

Caillou needs a quiet, safe, and loving home to spend the remainder of his days in. If you are interested, or if you have questions, please email: liz.raganella@pawsny.org
