Wally had a difficult life when he first came at the Town of Islip Animal Shelter. When he arrived as a stray, he was about 10 years old, and it was evident he’d spent the most of his life outside. Despite everything, Wally only needed someone to adore him from the start, and his new shelter mates jumped right in to give him all the love and attention he’d been missing.
Wally suffered from terrible skin disease and was blind in one eye, among other medical concerns, and he certainly had a distinct appearance. His new pals were concerned that his unusual appearance would turn away potential families, but they hoped that everyone else would see the great dog they’d quickly grown in love with.
“He loves to slobber on you and will do anything for some food,” Danielle Gorle, a veterinary technician at the Town of Islip Animal Shelter, told The Dodo. “He also likes to just hang out and not do anything.”
Wally has so much love to give and just wants to find a family to share it with, but the beautiful puppy has been at the shelter for almost a year.
Wally, a senior dog, just wants to spend his golden years in peace, and his rescuers are trying hard to find him a forever family as soon as possible, as shelter life is wearing him down.
“He seems to be declining,” Gorle observed. “When he initially arrived, he was cheerful. He adores getting out, yet he appears to be miserable in his kennel.”
Wally would thrive in a calm environment devoid of stairs, children under the age of 15, and other pets. Wally also need a home that knows his medical needs, but other than that, all he wants is love, which he will offer you unconditionally.
Wally had a bad life, and all he wants to do now is spend the rest of his days snuggling up with a family who adores him.
