If you walk through the dog kennels at the Humane Society of Kent County, the first dog you will see is 12 year old Tee. He will be lying quietly on his bed looking up at you with the most soulful eyes. He is laid back and gentle by nature and very easy to fall in love with.

When this sweet old man entered the shelter just 2 months ago he was still walking, but his back legs were rapidly declining. Due to rapid deterioration in his back, Tee is no longer able to walk on his own. Thankfully, with the aid of a donated “wheelchair”, he is still able to enjoy going for walks with staff members. He doesn’t bark or complain and he doesn’t appear to be in pain.

This pup definitely deserves better than to have to live in a concrete kennel. He belongs in a home where he can be comfortable and where he doesn’t have to be lonely every night. He remains resilient despite his handicap. He continues to be housebroken and he doesn’t let it hurt his pride when he needs to be carried. He doesn’t mind other dogs and seems to be indifferent to cats. He loves all people, big and small. Tee still has quality of life, which could drastically be improved if he had a family of his own to love!
