A senior dog in Memphis, Tennessee, is homeless after his owner was admitted to a nursing home. The 12-year-old dog, named Fluffy, was surrendered “in the field” after his owner went to the nursing home on February 22. At the same time, another senior dog named Ophelia became homeless as well.

Fluffy is being held at Memphis Animal Services – notes about the dog reveal a promising demeanor:

2/25/19 Fluffy was part of playgroups with other dogs on February 25, 2019. Fluffy was very laid back and friendly.

Help Fluffy, and his friend, find a new family

Fluffy is urgently in need of a new family, and so is his longtime friend, ID#A311363. Ophelia is a 12-year-old spayed female, mixed breed dog. Both dogs are elderly, and described as “sweet” and “dog-friendly.”

You can help make that possible by taking a moment to share their adoption information.

    WOW, another POS family dumping their elderly relative into a senior center and then dumping the dogs……. of course they will snap up anything and everything of “value” in the home…..
    Really best to age in place with appropriate caregiver support…… actually cheaper than a senior center……..

    Someone out there, please adopt these beautiful babies. Must be a rescue that could take them and find a loving home.

    You can look up “dog rescue” on Google and find a place that can take them
    Also the dogs should see their former owners sometimes because the dogs miss them and they also miss the dogs
