Meet Wheezer

Wheezer is a lovable old man! He's a pug-something, but his nose isn't smooshed in, and his tail is curved like a fan.

Wheezer's hind-quarters aren't in the best shape. He needs a little massage to get up and rolling for the morning. He takes Gabepentin twice daily for arthritis, and is doing really well on it. He LOVES wandering around his back yard. He likes going for very short walks that mainly consist of moseying up the sidewalk sniffing everything! He loves to explore.

Wheezer loves having his ears and chest rubbed and his belly petted. He will butt you with his head for pets. He does not like being up on the furniture. The surface is just too unstable for him to move, or for him to get his hindquarters stable. He has a couple of snuggly beds around the house for relaxing. When he decides dinner is late, he will howl like a coyote!

Wheezer needs to go outside to go to the bathroom every 3-4 hrs. For longer than that, he wears a belly band, and tolerates it just fine.

Wheezer gets along with all dogs and cats. He just needs a slow-moving, mellow home with good food, a little exercise and lots of ear scratching!

Have questions about Wheezer or want to adopt him? Fill out an adoption application and our foster coordinator will reach out to you. The application doesn't obligate you to adopt the dog, but it does save your place in line if there are multiple people interested in the pup. http://www.sdroregon.com/adoption-application.htm

The adoption fee is $150 (10% discount for seniors and veterans).
