Slade was the most handsome, loyal, and loving companion. He is thought of and missed every day.

At the beginning of June, Slade had to be rushed to the vet for collapsing and shortness of breath. He was diagnosed with congestive heart failure and was placed on medications. Slade has adjusted well to his medication and has been stable, overall. He still has some days where he struggles with his breathing and appetite. Slade tires out quickly on walks. We are hoping to keep him comfortable on the medication for as long as possible. Please consider donating towards his care and helping with his monthly medication costs.

Slade is still looking for a forever home. He is an active boy who loves to go for long walks. Slade is wonderful on leash. He would do best as an only dog, but can also be placed with an easygoing female with careful management. Slade is very possessive still around his food, so needs to be in a separate area at this time. He has no difficulty when left alone during the day. Slade just needs continued work on his manners and guidance on appropriate behavior.  If you can give this senior a home of his own, please apply for Slade!

Slade and his foster sister, Gretchen, went on a road trip to Kentucky for the holiday. Slade really enjoys car rides and just being with his family. His skin has improved and his coat is looking much better. Included is a photo of Slade relaxing – he is a great cuddler!

Slade is a sweet boy who enjoys snuggling with his foster mom. He loves his daily walks and is very good on leash when there isn’t another dog around. When he sees a dog, he tends to pull and can be reactive. Slade does need carefully monitored in the home around food. He would be fine as an only dog in a home. If you are interested in adopting this spunky senior boy, apply today for Slade!

Slade is doing well in his foster home. He is gaining some much needed weight. Slade walks very well on leash. When you try to play with him, he gets very excited but doesn’t really understand and just wiggles everywhere. His foster mom reports he is a sweet boy who loves snuggles.

Slade was found as a stray and was not reclaimed. If you have a soft spot in your heart for a senior dog, then Slade may be the guy for you! This sweet boy arrived at the shelter with double ear infections and some hair loss in places, most likely due to flea dermatitis and/or neglect. Slade is housebroken and did well at the shelter around other dogs of all sizes. He is a wonderful guy with a spunky disposition.  Slade was recently neutered and brought up to date on all vet care.  He just arrived at his new foster home, where he is living with a senior female boxer. We will update Slade’s page once his foster family gets to know him better.
