I was already pretty old when my mom got me. She said she would be my foster mom, but I knew this was where I was supposed to be. She helped me get through heartworm treatment and then I was neutered so I could get adopted. And it happened...on Christmas Day I went to my new home. Then during Mardi Gras (3 months later) my ear started hurting really bad. I really didn't like the vet. Every time I had to go to one of those places it really hurt. I had emergency surgery and the vet told my new mom I was "aggressive" and shouldn't be around children. My new mom cried, but she said I had to go. When she called the rescue group the lady said I had too many problems I was going to be "put to sleep." When they called my foster mom and told her they were going to put me to sleep she said, "Over my dead body!" and then I heard the words that were music to my ears....I was going HOME! When I got home I had this big plastic thing around my head and I spent some time going to that place with the vet who hurts me. My mom's vet isn't scared of me though. A few months later I got pneumonia. My mom said that I am a wonderful dog, but I am expensive! The we got to evacuate and stay at a hotel while I got well. We still foster dogs, and for some reason the puppies just LOVE me! They must think I am their grandpa or something! Now that I have been here for a few years, my mom keeps telling me how lucky she is to have such good boys. She can't believe she almost let me get away. I think I am the lucky one!

If that is an aggressive face, I'm a monkey's aunt. Bless Connor's sweet heart. Thank you for giving him a good life! He's really been through a lot!

Oh my, your story brought tears to my eyes! How can anyone say he's aggressive- just look at that face!!! If anything, it was brought on by pain. We had adopted an older, abused, & abandoned dog! She was only aggressive when she was badly hurting & we understood this. Connor I am so happy for you. You have such a loving mama & a most comfortable home. I am sending you lots of hugs & kisses your way because I think senior dogs are soooo special!!

Too many problems, there is no such thing as a dog with too many problems only people who won't take the time to listen and help. I have had dogs that were seniors or had special needs, behavioral problems or physical handicaps and everyone of them was an angel. He is adorable and I am sure he is a gentle loving. He deserves you and you deserve him.
