8 years old
Bogie's mom shares, "As my daughter said, 'imagine being rehomed at your age and not being able to talk, how would you feel?' We have nothing but time to give him and he will live out his senior years in the lap of luxury and be spoiled rotten."
Letter from Bogie's Family
We lost our female Rottweiler earlier this month. Our house seemed quiet and our Jack Russell was depressed. My daughters both have rescue dogs and the love they receive from those dogs simply amazes me, like they know their lives were saved. I had decided long ago that my next dog would be a rescue.
I told my daughter who volunteers at PRC/HCAS that I wanted to save a life and asked to visit the shelter. So she took me there on April 23, 2016 and there he was…….
“Coffy” was surrendered to the shelter at 8 years old on April 19, 2016. According to his notes, the prior owner had only had him 5 months and kept him outside. She indicated that he was just too much responsibility. How could a dog with this sweet face at 8 years old, being kept outside, be too much responsibility?
My daughter sat me in a meet/greet area and brought back “Coffy.” In typical Rottweiler fashion, he was very aloof at first but warmed up quickly by putting his big sweet face in my lap wanting pets. I knew at his age his chances of finding a home were on the slim side and I just couldn’t resist his sweet face with his pleading eyes as if to say, “why am I here? What did I do wrong?”
“Coffy” is now Bogie and is safe in his forever home. It is apparent that he had not been an outside dog his entire life because he is definitely housebroken. He is adjusting nicely but as with any rescue definitely needs time to feel completely comfortable. As my daughter said, imagine being rehomed at your age and not being able to talk, how would you feel? We have nothing but time to give him and he will live out his senior years in the lap of luxury and be spoiled rotten.
