Meet Festus (aka Scott) from Denton

Festus, aka Scott, landed in the Denton shelter at the spry age of somewhere around 10. The shelter volunteer, Amy, and a sponsor took pity on him and took him to a vet for a full blood panel and check up. The vet said he had the worst ear infection he'd seen in a long time, and his ears are a work in progress right now. He is very hard of hearing probably. Festus has been started on thyroid medication., but otherwise his blood panel was normal. Amy is not at all set up for keeping another dog long term, and someone must step up for Festus ASAP before Amy is forced to return him to the shelter. After all, Festus is only out on loan. The sponsor really wants this dog saved, and is working diligently to find a forever home for this senior designer dog.

Amy reports Festus has really taken to a life indoors with treats, toys and love. He follows her around everywhere. Festus is a great candidate for a senior for seniors program, as he is pretty laid back. Can someone find a friend or neighbor for this fellow?

Amy and the sponsor do so much for rescue. Let's help them get the right result immediately.
