Hi! I’m Daytona 500! Yep, that is the world’s Most Awesome Name, given to me, the 500th senior pet rescued by Young at Heart Pet Rescue!
Yessir, 500 is a big number when you’re talking about senior pets saved, and I couldn’t be more proud to be the big 5-0-0!
You see, being an 8-year-old shepherd/collie mix at a shelter where they have to euthanize for space, I was “numero uno” in line for a very sad ending. But Young at Heart just couldn’t leave an awesome dog like me behind, and so, I found myself on a car ride to a new life!
And now I wait patiently for a forever family, one that likes sweet, waggy dogs like me! I’m a very good boy, housebroken and trustworthy, and better yet, have had professional training! Yep, I had some manners to learn, and so I know them really well now, and even come with an in-home training session with my trainer on adoption day!
I am healthy and oh-so-loveable, and now all I need is a family to love! I love to snuggle, and enjoy a good scratch behind the ears. I’m a leaner, too, so the more I like something, the more I lean into you. It’s kind of endearing, if I do say so myself.
I would make a fabulous companion for that special person that’s waiting for a handsome guy like me! I’m healthy and already neutered, up-to-date on my vaccinations, and microchipped. My adoption fee of $165 allows Young at Heart Pet Rescue to help other older dogs and cats like me get a second chance at a happily ever after.
