Buddy is a 15 yo pittie male who only has 1 week to find a home or else his owners will have him PTS. Apparently, they are getting up in years and cannot keep up with him. :(

Below are some words from the contacts, who went to visit him recently to assess his behavior, et al:

"Myself and two other girls from my rescue went to go visit with him about 2 weeks ago. The owners gave us two weeks to find him a home, or they will be putting him down.

He is a pitbull terrier, 15 yrs old, and extremely friendly and docile. He brought us his ball to play with and when we took it out of his mouth and there was no sign of aggression. We pet him, rubbed his belly,and bent down next to him to play with his ball and he was loving every minute of it.

The reason that none of us can take him is that the owner said no smaller dogs or cats with him and we all have one or the other......plus we always have young foster animals. They said he would be fine with dogs the same size or bigger.

The only other querk we were told w ere no skateboards or UPS men. I guess he has a thing for them. One of the other girls who is a vet tech examined him the best she could,
and found a few skin tags and a small mass on his anus, but but appears to be a good health and disposition."

Please see below for information as well as links below to petfinder and those you can contact should you or someone you know be interested in adopting this boy and spending time loving him during his golden years

I don't think putting him to sleep is such a bad idea if he spent 15 years with the same owner. Obviously I hope he can find a loving home, but if not, I'm glad the owners chose humanely putting him to sleep VS dumping him.

Sad. :(





*THIS IS A COURTESY POST* Buddy's owners are too old to care for him any longer, and called us and asked for our help to find him a home within the next 2 weeks or else they said they will be humanely euthanizing him! He is 15 yrs old and fully house trained. He is good with children and other large dogs. Buddy is very friendly, still plays with toys, but very slowly these days, and is pretty much low maintenance. He likes to nap most of the day, and loves to be dawdled over! He must go to a home without cats or smaller dogs. And he needs to be kept away from skateboards and UPS workers! Upon visiting Buddy we noticed a small cyst on his right eye, a small mass on his anus, and a few various skin tags. But he was sweet, gentle, and seemed otherwise healthy and even brought us his ball to play with! If you or anyone you know is interested in giving this dog a loving home in his final years, please email us at [email protected] for more information

i have to agree. 15 years w/ the same owner and he has maybe 2 years left, some of which may not be that pleasant due to the conditions of aging. yes it would be nice if he could just lounge in front of a warm fire w/ a nice hambone and go to sleep & never wake up. but that should happen w/ the people he knows & loves not someone new. since it can't happen the alternative isn't that bad. maybe they could even have the vet come out to their house.

I don't really understand how someone couldn't keep up with a 15 year old dog. But I'd rather see him humanely put down with the people he knows and loves and has been with for his life than to be rehomed and maybe die in a year or two with someone new.

I *can* understand how people could not keep up with a 15 year old dog.

Both my grandparents on my dad's side are going downhill VERY fast. Their 16 year old dog passed away last year, but at this stage, even he would be too much. They don't have anyone to help THEM with stuff other than my parents, let alone come let the dog in/out when they are at the hospital (they're in and out constantly, it seems like) and they may be moving to a nursing home in the very near future. (I suspect they'd also forget to feed the dog.) A little dog could probably go along, but a big dog? A pit bull, with all the hysteria about them?

I think I'd find a way for this dog to have a good last weekend or last few days, and then let him go.

I persoanlly think the best solution is to PTS. 15 years is old. being with the same family all those years (i assume) and to just uproot him at that age may even be the death of him, as in he will be just depressed ect with out his family he has known his whole life.

my first dog was 15 1/2 when i got her, so i suspect he'd do ok with the switch given somebody to take him.

i don't have the heart for another old dog at this point. especially one *that* old.
