Terrific Terry is a spry 14-year-old terrier/schnauzer mix who is as sweet as can be. He is alert and lively and acts quite young for his age. He was transferred from a shelter that doesn’t have the same adoption success rate as Agoura. It is hoped that someone who enjoys a slightly more sedentary life style will bring him into his or her home.
Here are some things you should know about Terry:
- He has lots of energy for a dog his age.
- He is very playful.
- He enjoys going on walks.
- He is a very quiet pup who is happy to spend time with someone to get lots of attention.
- He will easily fit into any home.
Don’t worry about adopting an older dog. Terry has the mature temperament to offer lots of fun and companionship to someone without being overly vigorous. He just wants to be safe and warm indoors with a loving person or family.
Since he has been at the Agoura shelter, he was taken to see a private vet for a senior wellness check-up where he got an “A-OK” as a physically healthy dog. He’s also had a dental cleaning plus a few extractions, and his teeth look fabulous! He is all ready to go to his forever home.
To adopt Terry, request A4917698. The Agoura Shelter is at 29525 Agoura Road, Agoura Hills. Occasionally, pets have already been adopted. To check availability, call 818-991-0071 or visit http://animalcare.lacounty.gov
