Meet Emily - Foster Needed!

UPDATE: Are you senior dog savvy? We are looking for someone to foster, which means temporarily house, Emily in their home until she is adopted. We provide the food, supplies, and medical care, and you provide the love and attention. She would do best preferably as the only dog and is great with cats and people of all ages. She would do great with a family that has a person home most of the time to provide her TLC. Please email tysonsplacerescue@gmail.com if interested.

We had her out at West Michigan Pet Expo where she was exposed to hundreds of people, all petting her and loving her, including little kids, and she just loved it! Wagging her tail and licking faces the whole time. So friendly!

Emily is an adorable yellow lab - she is so sweet and friendly. One of her favorite things to do is get attention - she just loves being pet. She came to us because her owner was moving into senior living and was unable to take her beloved 9 year old dog with her. Tyson's Place Animal Rescue's mission is to assist terminally ill people with finding new families for their pets, which we interpret to include senior citizens that are forced to make a move without their pets. Emily is everything you expect for a lab - friendly, good with people, ok with dogs that don't jump in her face, and adores cats! She lived with two kittens that shared her food bowl and her bed with her, and she enjoyed the company. She is also housetrained and doesn't bark much. She would do fine with older kids that know to be gentle with her, as her arthritis means she is sore. She loves a fenced in yard and loves the fresh air outside - she loves feeling the breeze in her face and sunshine on her fur. Even when it is snowing, as her photo shows, she enjoys time outside. Her foster mom jokes that she is like a postal worker - rain, sleet, snow and she likes her fresh air.

Emily's health is a work in progress. She is overweight but due to her health issues, she needs a slow weight loss plan - current goal is to drop 6 pounds in two months. She is already losing weight and gaining energy. She even has short bursts of running! She also has arthritis that requires a daily prescription pain pill ($70 a month) and means she can't handle many stairs - a few at most. We aren't trying to discourage anyone from adopting her - we just believe in full disclosure about our animals. Despite these health issues, she is still a happy-go-lucky, loving girl. Everyone at our vet, Allendale Animal Hospital, just thinks she is so sweet.

She is current on vaccinations, blood work, microchip, flea topical, and heartworm prevention, and will have a dental cleaning prior to her adoption. Do you have it in your heart to give this older girl a chance to live our her golden years in good health and well-loved? Please email tysonsplacerescue@gmail.com for more information.
