Meet our laid back boy Wilbur!
Wilbur came into the shelter as a stray and was unfortunately never reclaimed by his previous owners, so now Wilbur is up for adoption and looking for his fur-ever home! He is a very laid back senior dog aged by the vet between 10 to 12 years old.
You may have noticed in one of Wilbur’s photos that he has a big-sized tumor on his right leg — he has been checked out and told by the vet it is too big to be removed, however, it is not causing Wilbur any discomfort and other than that he has a clean bill of health.
For his day in the life, he loves getting his combination food of wet/dry every morning and gets very excited. After eating he gets outside time and enjoys his own company. He doesn’t care for you to be around him and prefers to have his peace and quiet when he is outside and that’s about all he does is just roam the yard in a slow pace.
When Wilbur is inside he likes to lay down and when he is ready to go back outside again he will “bark,” and the reason its in quotation is because when he barks it’s a raspy, horsed and deep sounding bark that’s actually pretty cute as he stands out from all the other dogs.
Wilbur is a laid back senior who would do good in a quiet environment as he moves at a slow pace and sleeps when he’s comfortable after being outside.
