MR. WHISKERS, MR. WHISKERS, LEND ME YOUR EARS. No, literally, you will want his ears! They are most expressive part of this coarse-haired terrier mix. It's as if they are starched to permanently remain at attention to ensure he doesn’t miss a thing. These perky ears wondrously compliment his big round brown eyes. What a looker!! But as handsome as this 11 year-old might be, he could afford to lose a couple of pounds to continue to live a quality life. He is not enthusiastic about eating his dog food. This may be because he is accustomed to eating table scraps either in conjunction with his kibble or instead of it. He begrudgingly signed up for a leash walking class, as his prior life found him to be strictly a couch potato. Amazingly, he is a vigorous and confident man on the street and delights in participating in this activity tethered to his fellow canines! He will need a securely fenced yard as he is still wanting to find his way back to the only home he ever knew. Dad left without warning, and Mr. Whiskers and his fellow housemates still are trying to figure out what happened. Luckily, should he escape, he does not run fast. Actually, Mr. Whiskers prefers to stop and smell the roses. This guy is both charming AND healthy and does not act his age. Very easygoing, calm, cooperative, affectionate and gentle, he could join most any household. Although he was fine with his foster mom’s 3-year-old grandchild, his new owner will need to remember that he has lived his entire life with only adults, so this particular dog would be best with older children. He reportedly lived with a cat previously along with larger and smaller dogs. He is a dream come true canine and wants to whisper all his secrets to you! He will want you to allow him to sleep with you or you may be awakened in the middle of the night because he is lonely.

Available through Tired Dog Rescue, Gulfport, MS. Fee: $175. Apply at tireddogrescue.org.

Good with Dogs, Good with Cats, Good with Adults, Requires a yard

We at Tired Dog Rescue strive to find homes for dogs in need, build quality relationships with responsible owners, and preserve current dog-family homes by seeking solutions to financial, behavioral, and situational dog problems. We believe the lives of homeless, abandoned and abused dogs are just as precious as dogs that currently have a loving home. We believe that all dogs deserve a loving home despite their age, medical condition and/or disabilities. We provide whatever medical care is needed regardless of cost. All dogs are spayed/neutered, heartworm negative and current on vaccinations before being placed.
