Mr. Pup ~ in Northern California

Looking for a Home

My name is Mr. Pup and I am a 10-year old male silky terrier looking for a loving retired person to be my new mom. My current mom is dying of colon cancer and has only a little time left on this earth. She has been very good to me, taking me on daily walks, playing with me, and cuddling me at night. She feeds me just a cup of dry food every day and no people food to keep me slender. A few weeks ago she had to leave me and go into the hospital. Her daughters have been feeding me and walking me every day, but I canít go live at their houses because they have pets that I donít particularly like.

Speaking of pets, I prefer to be the one-and-only pet in the house. I chase cats, rabbits and squirrels and donít like to share my ownerís attention with other dogs. I currently live in a two-bedroom apartment in the San Francisco Bay Area. I go potty on the paper in the bathroom at night and if I need to go between walks. I am neutered and up to date on all my shots. I do sometimes limp because my back right hip can bother me sometimes, but my mom just rubs it a bit after walks and it feels better. I like to play fetch with toys, but my mom has to use two toys because I wonít give up the first toy until she throws the second.
