verifiedPosted Breed: Lhasa Apso / Pekingese / Mixed. If interested in any of our animals for adoption, or to foster an animal, please fill out the respective application to get the process started. Visit our FAQ webpage for commonly asked questions about our adoption/foster process. Wilbert is the coolest old guy! He was found as a stray and needed some cleaning up, but he’s doing great and is now looking for his forever family. Wilbert is not a barker, but does like to talk a bit (especially if he thinks you’re hiding yummy food from him). He is house and crate trained and is great with other dogs and cats. He’s very gentle, loves giving kisses – but his favorite is napping next to you on the couch! Wilbert would like nothing more than to be able to hang out with his people all day, following them from room to room and keeping them company. Wilbert is almost completely deaf and will need daily eye drops for KCS (“dry eye”) for the rest of his life. His family will need to understand that he’s on the older side, and needs a little regular maintenance, but will give back so much love that he’s more than worth it! Update: 2-14-17: Wilber is still doing well in his foster home, but we’ve gotten some additional medical information for him. He had four masses removed and three came back as malignant. He has several other bumps and lumps, but we’re not going to test all of them as the outcome won't change our plan for Wilbert. The type of malignancy he has does not often metastasize, but is prone to return. A potential adopter should be aware of this, and recognize that we have no way of knowing how much time Wilbert has left. He has a very loving foster home and they are happy to provide the best environment for him for whatever time he has left. But if that special person is out there who feels like they can offer Wilbert all the love and support this great guy deserves, they should absolutely feel free to complete an application or contact the rescue for more information. Last Day Dog Rescue now microchips all dogs/cats before adoption. Microchips are implanted between the dog's/cat’s shoulder blades and are a permanent form of identification. The microchips are registered to Last Day Dog Rescue with the adopter's info added once adopted. If the dog/cat is ever lost and slips his/her collar/tags the microchip allows the finder to know who to contact if scanned for a microchip. Dogs and cats MUST still have a collar with tags on at all times. Per our contract, we take all our dogs and cats back if for any reason you can't keep your adopted dog or cat. The petfinder.com system requires that we choose a predominant breed or breed mix for our dogs and cats. Visual breed identification in dogs is unreliable so for most of the dogs we are only guessing at predominant breed or breed mix. We get to know each dog as an individual and will do our best to describe each of our dogs based on personality, not by breed label. Thank you for looking through our list of animals needing forever homes. We appreciate you stopping by.
