Meet the bilingual dog, Poochie! This handsome pittie mix was surrendered to Philly's animal control shelter because his life-long owner entered a nursing home. Luckily, he joined City of Elderly Love and is now ready to find his forever home!

Poochie is a larger pittie mix with gorgeous apricot-colored fur. His previous owner reported that he was 11 years old, but his energy level and physical condition make us think he's a bit younger - perhaps 8ish. Poochi is a silly boy who loves to play and loves everyone he meets! He understands both English and Spanish. In fact, the shelter volunteers noticed he responded to commands better in Spanish. Poochie has lived with kids, cats and dogs previously and is currently in a foster home with all three currently! He even did great in doggie play group at the shelter and is living with both large and small dogs. He's very tolerant of other dogs' pushy behavior. He's one well-rounded boy! 

Poochie has received a full veterinary workup since coming to the rescue and has shown to be a healthy guy. He can't wait to join his future family and provide them lots of laughs with his adorable underbite!

Poochie is available for adoption through City of Elderly Love! He is neutered, vaccinated and microchipped. He is also heartworm and lymes disease negative. Interested in adopting him? Visit to complete an online adoption questionnaire or email us at!
