Dewey was found as a stray and turned into a local shelter. At almost 16 years old, he has lots of typical "old man" issues. Dewey is deaf and blind. He does not like being touched around his face. Like many seniors, the majority of his day is spent sleeping, with awake time to eat and go potty.

Dewey needs a quiet home that can accommodate the needs of a sweet old man. He has to be carried outside to do his business as e does not walk around very much. If he needs to go outside, he will bark. He also barks to be fed. Dewey is a very sweet dog.


Can’t have a dog of your own? Have a soft spot for old, sick or hard to place dogs? It only takes a $20 a month donation for me to be your virtual dog! I need at least 10 virtual adopters (sponsors) to help cover my monthly costs.  If I have medical challenges I need even more! r having to leave your home, you can have your very own online dog that will send you update emails, make Facebook posts, and be eternally grateful for your support!  Go to the donate link at the top of the page for instructions as to how to donate.

I love my Virtual Adopters! RYAN B
