MEET DIBS!

Quick, call dibs on Dibs! This adorable little Jack Russel is around 10-12 years old and was found as a stray in Philadelphia and brought to the animal control shelter. He lucked out and hitched a ride to City of Elderly Love and is now ready to find his forever home!

Dibs weighs around 23 lbs. Though he's a senior and loves his naps, he's also still got great spunk. Dibs is curious, spunky, attentive and loves meeting new people! His favorite things to do including eating, walking or resting outside, playing with squeaky toys, following his foster mom around the house and sniffing out crumbs (nose like a hound)! During the day, you can usually find him snoozing in a sunny spot on the floor or in his dog bed. He'd be a great companion while working from home! Dibs isn't currently living with other pets in his foster home and does bark at other dogs on walks but was polite while meeting them at the shelter. We think he'd be happiest in a quieter home and he'd be completely fine without other pets. He loves getting all the attention anyway!

When we originally pulled him from the shelter, Dibs had a limp in his right hind leg & knuckles his paw when walking; after vet check learned it's due to age related arthritis in his spine and he had a torn CCL which is slowly repairing itself. He has had several sessions of therapy with Whole Animal Gym and enjoys his exercises to keep him mobile and agile. To prolong his mobility and rehab, he is carried up and down stairs (as recommended by his doctor). He's otherwise a healthy dude!

Dibs is available for adoption through City of Elderly Love. He is neutered, vaccinated and microchipped. Interested in adopting him? Visit www.cityofelderlylove.org to complete an online adoption questionnaire or email us at info@cityofelderlylove.org!
