Help Wade find his retirement home!
Wade is a beautiful McNab, sweet, loving and ready to retire! His story is a sad one we are hoping with your help will turn to a happy ending for everyone. Wade came from a loving home, with children and another canine playmate growing up. Unfortunately tragedy struck Wade’s family and Wade’s best friend and playmate got sick.
Over the past year Wade’s family struggled to care for his companion, giving the medical attention needed. Wade began to develop some nervous habits around the changes in his life. Wade’s buddy passed on this last year and as a result Wade developed separation anxiety and depression losing his best friend. Over time his family expected his temperament to change, unfortunately, Wade’s nervous habits continued to escalate to a point of Wade hurting himself. In wade’s best interest his family relinquished Wade to Home At Last so we can help find him a forever home who is understanding of his special needs.
Wade was brought to Home At Last Humane Society in April this year where Animal Care Specialists have done a full assessment of Wade’s condition. Wade is found to be a sweet, independent dog who responds well to praise and attention. He has separation anxiety and fear of other dogs. He is a special case, in where he needs mental stimulation but his age and physical limitations keep him from excessive physical activity. Their assessment was that Wade would do best with a full-time companion, and thrives to be his owners sidekick. He would make a great therapy dog and is relaxed and content in close proximity to people, simply watching them move around him.
Please help us find a forever home for Wade to relax, bond and live out the remainder of his days with a loving companion.
What Are Therapy Dogs?
Dogs offer themselves to us with joy, unconditional love, great affection, and companionship. They can have a profound ability to touch our lives not engaged by other kinds of interactive therapies. Perhaps this is because they offer themselves in a non-threatening, wordless way that speaks love and attention. Indeed, there is no greater therapy than the love of a dog.
Animals have long been recognized as being a positive force in the healing process for injury and illness. Dogs have a calming and therapeutic effect for most humans in a variety of situations. Dogs can help with the emotional issues related to injury or illness by offering physical contact with another living creature. Therapy dogs have been used to ease sick children, soldiers and elderly. The love of an animal companion can help ease the mild stress of daily problems, assist with boredom, loneliness, and lack of control with some illness or injury.
