Sweet older gentleman looking for a calm home.

Hello there.. I am an older gentleman by the name of Shippo. I am currently living at Soi Dog Foundation in Phuket, Thailand. I came to the shelter after I was hit by a car. Luckily nothing was broken although I was in terrible shock.

I am a calm and sweet boy with a gorgeous fur coat that would put a bear cub to shame. It does get very hot here in the tropics so I am hoping that very soon someone will give me a home where it is cooler and calmer and perfect for an older boy like me.

I can go on walks but they need to be very slow and gentle strolls as I have some trouble with my hips. You know what would be really wonderful? An easy-to-access backyard that I can walk into when I want to enjoy some sunshine and fresh air.

I love my coat being brushed…you can practically see me tingle with happiness when a volunteer brushes my hair. I also love cuddles and snuggles – the more love you have to share the better!

I’d love to know what it’s like to live in a home. I may not wag my tail as hard as the youngsters to show my love, but if you look in my eyes, you will see my eternal gratitude for the time you spend with me. Please email nayomi@soidog.org directly or send a quick adoption enquiry by clicking below, to find out how to adopt me.

My ideal home is one that is calm and quiet and with a family who can look after my old age needs. 

Here at the shelter I live with many other dogs. It is my dream to find a quiet space away from all the noise and just relax. It would be best for me to be the only dog or to live with dogs with similar temperaments or personalities.

Will you do something special for me? Will you consider adopting a gorgeous older dog like me? In return, I promise to be your loving, loyal companion.
