About Woody Watkins-sponsored

  • Status: Adopted!
  • Species: Dog

Wanted: Distinguished senior "gentle"man - one whose legs have carried him many miles and whose hips have probably had better days - is in search of a home to live out his remaining doggy days. Recently applied for entrance to the local senior center in town, but his "howling for a home" routine wasn't appreciated by some of the current residents. Found shelter at the local animal shelter (not quite what he had in mind), but he's simply glad to have a bed to call him own and a doghouse to share with his new "old" girlfriend, Milan. Likes to keep a tidy house, so he "holds it" as long as he can. While many would simply call him an old hound dog, he prefers to introduce himself as Mr. Woody Watkins, Treeing Walker Coonhound by profession. He requests that you PLEASE watch his videos below to "see his good side." His needs really are few - he's just hoping for a warm place to rest his weary bones, one that has a human or two in it to treat an old man with a little bit of dignity, and maybe another old girl like Milan to snuggle with on a soft bed (or better yet, Milan herself as they'd BOTH love to keep you company). As age is only a number and beauty is more than what's on the surface, he doesn't care if your hair is gray or thin or if you walk with a little less bounce in your step than you were born with. He'll simply treat you like the fine wine you are, if only you would do the same for him. He's more than happy to answer any other questions you might have. Simply contact his "real estate agents" here at the shelter and they'll do all of the talking for him (although you might get lucky and hear him softly howling "hello" in the background).

Here's a report from one of the volunteers who took Woody to visit the residents of the local nursing home. It sounds like Woody would make a good therapy dog. How wonderful, a senior helping seniors:

Woody was so excited to be back at the nursing home. He knew what rooms to go to. He was very clingy and liked to rest his head on people. He likes looking at the big beds with the blankets. He never jumped up on the furniture and asked to go outside when he needed to.  He had a ball in the car riding shot gun.
