Percy is the sweetest most wonderful 8-year-old Goldendoodle (40 pounds) who has filled our home with love since he was 7 weeks old. It is with a heavy heart that I’m looking for a new loving home for him. I knew several years ago that his care would be more than I could manage physically with my own mobility constraints once my son went to college, which he did just this fall. As I feared, Percy hasn’t been getting the attention and exercise he deserves and I really want something more and better for him.
Percy is truly the best dog ever, living to give and receive love. He’s been healthy his whole life and only about half a year ago began to have some medical challenges. In a short time, he was diagnosed with Type 1 diabetes (for which he needs two shots of insulin a day at a cost of under $30/month), went blind, and eventually lost his eyes to glaucoma. Through it all he’s maintained his sweet disposition and been an inspiring model of resilience. He loves long walks, even running, and playing fetch (now with his scented balls.) He’s the perfect companion who absolutely loves to snuggle; he happily comes, excitedly wagging his tail, whenever his name is called; he’s super friendly and loves to meet new people; and he’s never been a barker. I know he’d be a great addition to the right home and I know he’s got a lot more quality of life to live with a new family who has more to offer than sadly I have the capability to at this time.
I’m happy to answer any questions and be of whatever ongoing support I can to any prospective new owners. Percy’s been a patient at the same vet practice his whole life and the vets there are happy to provide more info about him, his likely lifespan, and any specific care needs. Percy is neutered and is up-to-date on vaccines. If you or anyone you know is interested, please contact me. Percy is truly special and I know would bring such joy to the right new family.
