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.
Hey everyone! My name is Corky. I found myself at a scary shelter as a senior dog, and it was pretty scary. My family no longer could take care for me, so they brought me there. Thankfully the shelter saw that I had lots of life left in me, so they asked for some help.. and Ruff Start stepped in! I'm living in a foster home in Texas until I can come up to MN to spend my golden years. Right now I live with kids (10+), adults, cats, and dogs of all shapes and sizes. My foster mom says I'm good with all dogs, but I prefer smaller dogs like myself. I don't mind the big dogs.. but sometimes when they run up on me I get scared. I like the older kids in the house since they are gentle and go slow with me. I wouldn't like a home with younger kids though.. I like them older and respectful ;). Cats are also A-OK with me too! I'm mostly potty trained, but do have the occasionally accident. I'm a pretty vocal little guy, so I think apartment life is just not for me. I'm a little cautious when first meeting strangers, but I warm up quickly! My foster mom says I'm a great boy once I'm given time to decompress and settle in to a new home. I'm a little spicy in new situations, but after a few days I know that you're my friend and all I want to do is cuddle and be carried around.
In the meantime if you have questions or are interested in me, please fill out an adoption application at www.ruffstartrescue.org.
An adoption application is the best way to show your interest in an animal.
