Cole - in Maine
Posted October 2021
This sweet boy should not have to relocate for his retirement years but his owner was having health issues and couldn’t care for him the way he had been loved all those years. He was in foster with our southern partners right now and loving all his new buddies, but adopting out a senior black dog in the south is near impossible so we brought him to New England to enjoy his golden years! His southern foster mom says, “Cole is a very calm laid back boy with little bursts of energy. He loves to be with his people and would do well with older children that would let him sit with them while they play video games. He is house trained and loves to sit outside with you but doesn’t like to be left alone outside. He tells you when he’s hungry and when he needs to go out with his old man grumble. He sleeps in his own bed at night next to our bed. He gets along great with our cats and other dogs. He loves soft fuzzy toys and a good ole bone even though he has no bottom teeth.”
Cole's age has been judged between 10 and 12 years old but you would never know it. He would love almost any type of home except maybe marathon runners.
When Cole got off the transport trip he was the life of the party! He does the most adorable dance with one leg up in the air when you are giving him loving, and he "gums you" by taking your hand in his mouth. He's such a riot. His Maine foster home has some cats and some humans who already adore him.
If you'd like to meet Cole or any of our sweet pups please fill out the adoption application.
Please note: we do not have a physical facility where the dogs are housed; they are cared for in our wonderful foster network throughout New England. It is our expectation that, once approved, a potential family will meet the dog(s) in the foster setting where they are feeling safe and loved.
