Adopt me: SOCRATES

Little Socrates, a senior male Shih-Tzu, about 13 years old and an easily carried 17lbs. Socrates is a low maintenance dog. He was brought to a groomer by his family and after grooming, they did not pick him up. The groomer discovered that the phone number and address they had was false. They were located near a famous Italian bakery (Fortunato's), who are animal lovers and good friends of the BARC Shelter. They called us and we took in gentle little Socrates, sweeter than the blueberry cheesecake that accompanied him. He spends his time on the laps of volunteers, but he does enjoy going out for short walks. When he is out, he has a pep in his step that is adorable and he gets along fine with other dogs and cats, but you have to be careful that they don't jump on him. At his late age, Socrates is developing moles on his body, but they are not cancerous, so we are praying that we can find him a quiet home where he can live his final years in safety and with a loving family.
