Name: Sir Waylon DOB: 2012 Weight: 30lbs Adoption Fee: $300
This animal is part of our "Seniors for Seniors" program where we offer senior animals adopters an opportunity to adopt a pet at a discounted fee.
Special dog seeks special home! Waylon is an energetic mature Cocker Spaniel. Waylon is the sweetest boy! He's a shadow dog, and will follow you around the house and keep you company. While he doesn't love sitting on laps, he loves being close by. He is great with other dogs. His foster home doesn't have cats or kids, but he'd likely be fine with both. He is really good in the car, and just appreciates being along for the ride. For the most part he stays off the furniture unless invited on to it, and he's fully house trained!
There are some important things to consider if you're thinking about having Waylon join your home to make sure it's the right fit. Due to his circumstances before joining us in rescue, Waylon has some medical concerns. Because of untreated chronic ear infections, Waylon will most likely need a surgery which will make him much more comfortable, but unfortunately also deaf. If you wish to adopt Waylon you should be sure that you are willing to work with a deaf dog. He also has some separation anxiety, and will bark when you leave, so shared walls are not ideal, nor are homes where Waylon would be left alone for extended periods of time.
If you think that you can work with these special needs, you will be rewarded with a fun-loving, energetic, playful, and loving companion. He's up for adventures and loves walks (though he does pull, so a gentle leader or a leash training class are recommended). He's equally willing to snooze by you while you binge watch your favorite shows. He's a great companion for single people and families alike! If you choose Waylon, you'll be getting the sweetest best friend!
An adoption application is the best way to show your interest in an animal.
