RONNIECollage

application



ARPH was contacted by a local shelter about Ronnie, this handsome red merle male. Our volunteer said he is without a doubt the sweetest, most gentle soul she has ever met. He's a true gentleman (of a certain age) that deserves to live out his golden years being pampered. Ronnie has a very sad story. He was picked up as a stray, the owner was contacted and told the shelter he thought Ronnie had wandered off to die. Ronnie's owner then told the shelter, "you might as well kill him." He didn't want him back. ARPH is more than happy to have him! Ronnie MIGHT be 10, he might be older. Regardless, we want Ronnie to know what it's like to be spoiled, so we are going to be super picky about his next home.

Ronnie still has plenty of spring in his step, the shelter had him romping in their yard the morning our volunteer picked him up. He attaches quickly to humans - he's a BIG leaner and LOVES attention. He is a little wobbly and stairs can be a challenge. His foster mom is loading him up on good things to help him feel more spry and get ready for his forever home. Ronnie is also a little this, so she's going to fatten him up a bit. He also has a cataract in one eye, but it doesn't seem to inhibit him.

Ronnie is being fostered in northern Virginia. We'll post more about him as he gets closer to his adoption time. If you think you're worthy of this fine gentleman, contact
Karen.
