Look into the eyes of a senior and you see gentleness, devotion and appreciation. This is Pekoe. He is being fostered in Indiana.
Pekoe is about 12 years old and has finally come to rest in comfort and joy with Tri State Collie rescue. Given his neglective past he is in pretty sad condition. His fur has been chopped due to severe matting and is very brittle due to poor nutrition. He is recovering from a severe infection of several teeth. Those teeth are gone now and he is on the mend.
His poor collie nose is scarred from past events and the vet feels he probably had injury to his hind hips and knees that went untreated, causing some weakness and arthritis.
But in spite of his former life of neglect and abuse, he is such a gentleman. He loves brushing and human interaction. He gets along fine with my own dogs and cats and he is doing fine with the housetraining. He is neutered and fully vetted.
Pekoe is such a dear boy and deserves a warm home and a soft pillow to lay his head in his final years. Look into his eyes and see his future with you.
