Hi! I’m Yubnub!
I found myself in need of a home at the ripe old age of 12 – or maybe it’s 13 – I can’t remember how old I am, exactly. Anyway, I hung out in a shelter for a while, but couldn’t really find anyone I wanted to go home with – they all wanted me to be able to see out both my eyes and be young and spunky. Overrated, I say.
With the help of Old Dog Haven, I found a nice home to settle into. The people I live with are my foster parents, but they tell me I get to stay permanently and never have to worry about finding another home – which is great, because shopping for a good family is a lot of work. Plus I’m not really a socialite – people stress me out – and this family doesn’t mind if I just stay home and hold down the fort.
My foster mom and dad took me to a lot of appointments in the beginning – I had to a bunch of bad teeth removed, and I had to see a special eye doctor. They also found out how much I am scared of the groomer. We have an agreement now – I go see the veterinarian every once in a while for a fancy shave, and I will let the groomer trim my toenails. I have dry eye, plus glaucoma in one eye, so I must have drops and ointments put in my eyes throughout the day. I don’t mind too much though, because I get treats whenever this happens!
Thanks to ODH, I don’t have to worry about where my next meal might come from, and I get all the medications I need to keep my eyes healthy and not hurt from arthritis. I get an awesome foster family that gives me lots of love, and I get to have a ‘normal’ dog life.
