Animal Allies Pet of the Week Is a Very Special Older Dog Named Socks [VIDEO]
Socks is a beautiful big older dog who is ten years old and is need of a very special home. Socks recently had a cancerous tumor removed from his mouth and due to the area where he had the tumor removed the veterinarian at Animal Allies decided it was best not to be more aggressive with his treatment due to the possibility of having to do more invasive surgery in his mouth.
He seems to have recovered well from the surgery is super happy, active and loves to play fetch. The volunteers at the shelter say he can go for hours running back and forth to grab the ball and bring it back to you. He is ten years old which for big dogs is usually considered the twilight years of their life, and so for him to have a warm loving home would be ideal.
Socks is housebroken, loves to swim and is great around children and other dogs. Due to his size he needs a lot of exercise or a fenced in yard would be ideal. Due to his ongoing medical needs he needs to be adopted by someone who understands he needs follow up care. He has been microchipped, neutered and vaccinated.
If you would like to meet Socks in person please stop by Animal Allies at 4006 Airport Road, Call # (218) 722-5341 or Website.
