Hi! My Name Is Petey

We're happy to tell you that Petey has a new furever home.
Please visit our Available Dogs Page to see the pups currently available.

Petey has the most soulful, loving eyes and all he really wants is one thing -- love from humans.  He is such a darling, snuggly boy who thrives in a home with plenty of affection.  He was found starving to death with his pal Tigger (who is also adoptable from ABR!), as a stray in a big city.  At the shelter they landed in, they were fast favorites with volunteers, who were smitten with their sweet nature and special bond.  Petey and Tigger both landed in the same foster home, and we quickly learned how much they both enjoy being part of a friendly pack of other senior dogs!  Petey is always trying to squeeze in the smaller dog beds with his frenchie foster brother or on the couch next to his larger, bulldog foster sister.  He is housetrained, non-destructive, and is pure perfection on a leash.  He isn't bothered by other dogs when seeing them out and about, even if they are barking at him.  Petey will always need eye drops and should stay on joint supplements to keep him happy and comfortable.  Petey would do best in a home with older kids, if any, since he sometimes has some achey joints that little ones might not be mindful of. 

Petey and Tigger have been together their whole lives and are a bonded, so we would prefer adopted together.  Tigger helps Petey feel better when he's sick and Petey helps Tigger feel brave in new places with new people.  We were pleasantly surprised to find that even though these two love each other so much, they are happy to spend the day in their foster home independently interacting with other people and dogs.  They're also happy to welcome new friends into the fold, and aren't protective of each other in any way that would pose a risk to other humans or dogs.  We just adore this odd couple!
