When Hyphy’s owner of 12 years was no longer able to provide care for him, he was surrendered at the vet to be euthanized even though he had no medical issues. Rocket Dog Rescue feels lucky that we could step in to save this sweet and spirited older gent.
Hyphy is now 13, but he has the heart of a pup. He has some typical issues of an older dog, like limited mobility (he needs a home without stairs) and the need for quick access to a relief area. Hyphy will always ask to go outside when needed but he can’t wait too long so he needs to be in a home where potty breaks are frequent or his relief area is easily accessible. He is currently using a dog door with a low step and is doing great. Although his back legs aren’t the strongest, Hyphy still loves to go for strolls and has an impressive spring to his step.
Hyphy needs a loving home to live out his golden years. It’s probably best if you don’t have other dogs, he doesn’t want to compete for love, but it’s not necessarily a deal breaker. He is an absolute team favorite and as much as we will miss him, we know the right home is out there just waiting to spoil this guy rotten.
If you are interested in meeting Hyphy, please fill out an application and a volunteer will be in touch with you shortly! (MM)
