Shelter Staff made the following comments about this animal:
Homer is a handsome senior who really needs to find a loving home. He was adopted from PACC all the way back in 2017 and lived in that home for over five years. The shelter has changed a lot in that time, but the reality is… it’s still a shelter, and Homer deserves better. Homer’s former family loved him, but he struggled to adjust to a new baby in the home. He has done well with older kids, so just needs to find a home without very young kids or babies. In his prior home he did great with another similar- size dog, but would prefer a home without small dogs. Homer has lived with cats but tends to herd them a bit, so if going to a home with cats needs a proper, slowly managed introduction to them. Here’s what some of Homer’s friends have said about him:

“Homer continues to be an amazing dog to spend time with. I cannot believe this sweet senior is still waiting for a new family. He is playful, engaging, affectionate, gives kisses and love. This boy is wonderful and so much deserves to be in a home. Homer is very housebroken and walks beautifully on leash and plays with tennis balls and squeaky toys like a puppy. I adore this boy and he just doesn't get enough interest and attention. Such a patient gentleman.”

“Homer has become one of my favorite dogs to take out for a walk. He is a loose leash walker and ignores others (both human and canine). He likes to sniff and check out his surroundings. He enjoys a few treats too. Returning to the kennel is easy as he likes to get back to his toys. He is a great dog and delightful to walk.”

When meeting other dogs in playgroup at the shelter Homer was appropriate, tolerant, social, and playful. He’d like to meet any resident dogs before heading home to make sure it’s a good fit. Please ask about this very good boy today!!
