The Baltimore Animal Rescue and Care Shelter is in search of a home for a 17-year-old dog named Trouble.
BARCS says Trouble isn't really Trouble:
"My mommy named me Trouble when I was young, because I was smart and liked mischief. But, she loved me no matter what. She was my best friend and I was hers. She adored me and took really good care of me for a long time. Over the years, I became a really good boy. We worked together at an assisted living facility and had so many friends. My mommy and me both grew elderly together. But then she got sick."
Trouble's owner had to make a difficult decision:
"She knew that even though I'm 17-years-old, that I still had life in me and needed a person. She's so sick that she can't be my person anymore, and made the heartbreaking and selfless decision to surrender me back to BARCS, where she first adopted me so many years ago."
Trouble made one last plea, "I hope that even though I'm 17, someone will want to be my next mommy or daddy."
BARCS says Trouble is house trained and loves belly rubs. He walks well on a leash and has a love for chicken.
For his age, Trouble is said to be in good health other than some bumps and his eyes being a little cloudy
Trouble reportedly has never lived with another animal, but BARCS feels with a little time to adapt, Trouble could get used to one.
Adoption fees for Trouble will be waived according to BARCS, as part of the 'Love Lasts Forever Program' for senior pets.
