Poodle Mix
13 years

My name is Hero, and I am the sweetest little guy ever. My family dumped me at an open admission shelter with my buddy, Cafe, and we were both in awful shape. Young at Heart rescued us both, and took us straight to the vet. Sadly, Cafe had so many complex medical conditions going on that he was suffering and in pain, and the only thing that could be done for him was to give him peace. I have a ton of medical issues, too, but I am still enjoying life and can be kept comfortable, and so Young at Heart made me a part of their sanctuary family. I had a horrible open tumor on my leg that unfortunately was malignant. Had it been addressed some time ago, it may have been treatable, but it has unfortunately spread, so I am a hospice dog. But don't be sad! I'm currently comfortable and happy, and I LOVE life! I am so thrilled that I get to be spoiled rotten in the twilight of my life. My little tail wags like crazy, and I love to give my mom kisses. I love other dogs and cats and am so happy to play and snuggle. There is nothing better than being told you are a good dog and so very loved.
