Pet of the Week: Gwenyth, a wise, old pup who got a second chance at life

Meet Gwenyth, a tri-colored mixed breed rescued from possible euthanasia by the miracle of modern medical treatments.

Here is what Gwenyth’s friends at Operation Underdog WV have to say about her:

Our girl Gwenyth is playing great Auntie to the 3 pups that we rescued last week. And while even Gwenyth is fond of puppy breath, we are hoping that the senior dog lovers out there will consider giving Gwenyth the wonderful home that she deserves. This darling senior girl is affectionate with people and does well with other dogs. She enjoys light walks, snuggling with stuffed toys, and snacks. Some things just get sweeter with time and this girl is one of them!

Gwenyth was rescued from a shelter where she was in danger of euth due to a heartworm positive status. She’s finished treatment and will be ready to go to a home after spay in mid- February, but we’re accepting applications now! Give us a shout to learn more about her!

If Gwenyth has won your heart, contact the shelter at [email protected]
