PAWS NY is in need of a foster home for Sonny, whose guardian is hospitalized.
Sonny is a happy 25-pound, 11-year-old terrier mix who loves his people. He has a great personality and loves going out in his stroller, where he can people watch and be outdoors. He is housebroken, and is good with other well-behaved dogs. Sonny is a velcro dog with anxiety, meaning he cannot be left alone. Additionally, he is on medication for a stage-4 luxated patella and hip problems. Therefore, his activity is limited to walks to the end of the block.
Sonny has a surgical consult at the ASPCA this week to examine his knee, so we can discuss getting him to and from that appointment, along with the move to his new foster. Because of Sonny’s immobility and separation anxiety, we are looking for a foster with the following:
- Household with at least two people (not a requirement but would be good for an extra hand)
- A homebody (even weekends)
- Someone who is able to lift 25 lbs, as Sonny cannot go up & down stairs
- Someone comfortable with administering medication
UPDATE as of 11.17.2021: Tiny and Precious are taken care of.
