A Little Bit About Me…
A volunteer writes: I love the seniors, their dignity, their acceptance of all things, their life experiences all of which contribute to their amazing demeanors. Humans should age as gracefully. Bishop is no exception, an older dog, so gentle, so housetrained (he never has accidents per his previous owner), so easy to be with I would have loved to spend the day with him. Surrendered to our care as his person could no longer care for him, we’re told he’s friendly to all, is relaxed and respectful with young children, ignores dogs of all sizes, and is described as “friendly and mellow”. Yes, he is! Leaving the building a person with a large dog came too close to Bishop and Bishop just stood there with no reaction like the perfect gentleman he is. He ignored a group of small dogs in the lobby as well. A lover of treats, Bishop takes them softly and then looks up for more. So gentle, so soft, so handsome, our awesome senior hope to find his retirement home quickly. His golden years should be spent surrounded by love, tucked into a soft bed at night, and enjoying wholesome food. This is a dog you’ll want to cuddle with, perhaps binge watching Netflix, or Law and Order, or sharing a good book. Don’t pass him up!
