If you’ve never seen what resilience looks like, you should meet George. Rescued from the Rio Grande Valley in Southern Texas, George is estimated to be about 10 years old. He “woofs” like a hound and is still a bit underweight at 50 lbs. He was found in a state of despair, covered in gasoline and suffering from poor health and injuries. He would soon become one of our best recovery stories. George’s kidney’s were shutting down when first rescued. He had a tumor in his prostate and since having been neutered, his foster has seen a remarkable improvement. He requires a special “kidney” diet and will more than likely remain on this for the rest of his life.

What we are looking for in a home for George is nothing short of retirement. He is content as long as his people are home.  He loves a yard with grass to roll in and if there happens to be kids and more dogs in his forever home, that would seal the deal.

This old soul is amazing with people. He’ll get close to get pets and closer to get more. It may look like he needs saving but in reality, it’s George who will save you. If you are ever in doubt that there’s no coming back from a sad state, George is here to prove us all wrong. The first 10 years may have been unbearable but his past has only made him love and want for more. We ask you to consider giving your heart and home to a senior dog who will take nothing from you and leave you full.

George is available for adoption in Texas only.
