Repost from @susiesseniordogs using @RepostRegramApp - WASHINGTON, DC: Oh come on, senior dog lovers! Our super-senior girl did NOT find a home this weekend! When Julep's former owner passed away, the owner's son brought her to the shelter. Julep was adopted 15 years ago, when she was already an adult. Putting her at 18 years old right now! Julep was surrendered one month ago and still hasn't found anyone to take her in. PLEASE SHARE!
Julep is in search of a final resting place where she can be the ONLY pet at home. She received numerous inquiries from very caring people, however, everyone had other pets at home. EVEN if your dog is mellow, the shelter has requested this as Julep is not getting long with other animals these days. We ask that you respect Julep's wishes. And if you cannot adopt Julep then please help spread the word. @humanerescue wrote, "Our biggest hurdle is that Julep really needs to be the only animal in the home – no matter how calm the resident animal is. Many who have inquired have animals and we don’t feel comfortable adopting her to them for THEIR animal’s safety. Julep has shown some reactivity, so we do require she’s the only animal.
Julep has been here longer than we expected - she came in on February 23rd. She's 18 years old and had lived in the same home for her whole life. Julep came to HRA when her owner passed away. She's pretty cheery, and has lots of energy for her age, but I'd really love to get her in a home ASAP. She is obviously not very comfortable here and we’d love to get her to her forever home as soon as possible.
Julep doesn't need much - just a lot of love and someone who wants a quiet companion. She would have to be the only dog in the home because at her age, she doesn't have the tolerance for too much dog energy. She would love a great big dog bed to sprawl out on and toys to chew on. You don't have to give her too much exercise and she is already pretty well-trained!
Senior dogs like Julep are truly special and have a unique type of love to give. And Julep can't wait to show you!” To adopt Julep, please email the shelter at email@example.com.
