Can't you just picture this guy trotting beside you?
Update Aug. 22: Old Glory was featured as a past Pet of Week and still needs a home! Give this low-maintenance, sweet doggo a chance. He can be adopted at Street Tails Animal Rescue.
Meet Old Glory!
He's a charming Chihuahua Mix with a quiet, loving demeanor. He may be 10 years-old, but this pocket sized pup still has plenty of pep in his step.
Name: Old Glory
Age: 10 Years-Old
Breed: Chihuahua Mix
Temperament: Low maintenance, sweet, and loving. He is quite content to be
anywhere his people are.
Brief Bio: The loss of vision in his left eye has not fazed him at all and
he doesn’t suffer any other issues resulting from the trauma. Old Glory
loves people and is always ready to shower willing recipients with lots of
kisses. He is the perfect partner for a movie night at home, or will
happily trot alongside you on a neighborhood stroll. He is comfortable
around other small dogs and would be tolerant of cats in the home as well.
This sweet senior is looking for a place where he can spend his golden
years lounging around, and he will feel much happier once he learns that he
is secure in a loving home. If you can’t resist Old Glory’s animated smile
and perfectly floppy ears, fill out an application at Streettails.org.
