Do you like soft, snuggly puppies? Of course you do. Do you like soft, snuggly puppy-appearing seniors who actually have tons of wisdom and life experience? Of course you do! Wentworth is an absolute doll. Within minutes of meeting you, he will be curled up in your arms and melting your face with his cuteness. We think he may be more of a solo, only-child dog. So if you’re looking for a one-and-only to never-be-lonely, come meet Wentworth!
Wentworth is hospice due to the following medical conditions: seizure episodes and mobility issues
Here’s some notes from his foster:
Wentworth is settling in and starting to show his sweet and sassy side!! He’s getting more pep in his step as the days go by. He is sweet and loves to be pet and dotted on. He will follow you around and sit near you as you work. He also likes to bop around the apartment.
Wentworth loves to be around you most of all. He will follow you everywhere you go and he does listen when you tell him to come. Wentworth is generally pretty quiet. When you leave the room he will whimper and bark but settle after a few min. He will whine for food if you’re eating but quietly. He sleeps through the night in his dog bed.
He knows how to do stairs but I usually carry him up and down because it seems to be hard on his back legs and because he missed a step once and took a tumble so I want to be extra cautious. Apart from the slip on the step, he gets around great with only one working eye. Sometimes I put him in a doggy stroller to walk him around the neighborhood.
Wentworth is house trained! Any new home that he goes to must understand that there will be a learning curve.He’s a fast learner. Very sweet guy. Loves his humans and wants to be with them all the time.
That said he does very well being left home alone. The longest I’ve been gone is about five hours. He does very well in the car. He sleeps through the night. He prefers sleeping in the bed but will settle for the floor if necessary.
Wentworth peps up when he sees a ball and momentarily acts like a puppy. It’s really so sweet.
After being diagnosed with a terminal illness, Wentworth is living life to the fullest in our Hospice Program, under which one of our special hospice families has provided him with a loving home and the very best possible end-of-life care. Please wish Wentworth well!
