PET OF THE WEEK

Kent County News - - OPINION -

If you walk through the dog ken­nels at the Hu­mane So­ci­ety of Kent County, the first dog you will see is 12-year-old Tee.

He will be lay­ing qui­etly on his bed look­ing up at you with the most soul­ful eyes. He is laid back and gen­tle by na­ture and very easy to fall in love with.

When this sweet old man en­tered the shel­ter just two months ago, he was still walk­ing, but his back legs were rapidly de­clin­ing. Due to rapid de­te­ri­o­ra­tion in his back, Tee is no longer able to walk on his own. Thank­fully, with the aid of a do­nated “wheel chair,” he is still able to en­joy go­ing for walks with staff mem­bers.

He doesn’t bark or com­plain and he doesn’t ap­pear to be in pain. But he def­i­nitely de­serves bet­ter than to have to live in a con­crete ken­nel. He be­longs in a home where he can be com­fort­able; where he doesn’t have to be lonely ev­ery night.

He re­mains re­silient de­spite his hand­i­cap. He con­tin­ues to be house­bro­ken and he doesn’t let it hurt his pride when he needs to be car­ried.

He doesn’t mind other dogs and seems to be in­dif­fer­ent to cats. He loves all peo­ple, big and small.

Tee still has qual­ity of life, which could dras­ti­cally be im­proved if he had a fam­ily of his own to love.
