Anyone willing to open their home and heart to an older dog in order to give them the best in their twilight years should meet Jerry.

This 8-year-old Boxer mix is described as well-mannered, friendly and very loving.

“He is a very friendly, well mannered dog. He will be an awesome loving companion,” the folks at HOPE Safehouse tell Racine County Eye.

Any family who wants to add Jerry should take note: he does need to be in a home as the only dog.

If you think your family could be the furever home for Jerry, call HOPE Safehouse at (262) 634-4571, email them at hopesafehouse@gmail.comor visit
