Why doesn’t anybody want me? A question a dog, homeless for a decade, must surely wonder. The dog, named “Dodger,” has been at the North Fork Animal Welfare League, in Peconic, New York, through his adolescence, the prime of his life, and now, his twilight years (according to the shelter, Dodger arrived after Hurricane Katrina and has been there ever since).
The following information was posted to Facebook about the long-time shelter resident:
He is an older guy now. The good: He walks great on a leash is very clean in his kennel. Loves walks and car rides. Dodger needs to be the only pet in a home, He also cannot be with young children as he is not a fan of tail pulling or pinching. His perfect person would be willing to come meet him a couple times feed him cookies and build a friendship (which really only take a few cookies).
Dodger’s biography on the shelter website states, “Dodger quickly became a staff favorite not only from his personality, but also because he walks excellent on a leash, and knows basic commands.”
Dodger needs to be in a home – enjoy what remains of his life with a person who is his very own. Please share Dodger’s information and help him find a home. Facebook thread here.
