My friend is going through some extreme roughness in her life and it includes having to give away her 10 year old dog, Bernie. This is the information she gave me."He's not caught up on this year's vaccines, aside from rabies. He's turning 10 this year and has lime disease and heart worms. Our vet thinks because of his age it's best to not do anything about the lime disease but he does need monthly heart worm medication. Not sure about training, he's been an outside dog but I don't recall him having any accidents when my uncle kept him. He's good with kids and other dogs as long as they're not too energetic. He doesn't like small spaces, is a huge fan of classic rock, and requires at least one hug a day (he's a cuddler), loves walks. He honestly just needs a good home to calmly live out the rest of his days as a senior dog."
The only other solution is to return the poor guy to the pound.
