Adoption Monday: Adopt-A-Less_Adoptable-Pet Week

Big black dogs. FIV+ cats. Senior pets. Special-needs animals. Many factors can make a pet seem "less adoptable." To promote these unusual (or, in some cases, too common) animals, Petfinder has designated Sept. 17-25, 2011, as "Adopt-A-Less-Adoptable-Pet Week."

Deep down we all want the perfect dog. But what does that really mean?

The perfect dog for you might be just among those nobody seems to want.

He might be a bit older. He might not see, hear or walk so well. He might not be all that good looking. But he might have a big heart and he might change your life in a way you never thought possible.

Shiloh is one of those dogs. A dog with a great disposition and no luck finding a home.

Breed: Hovawart Mix
Date of birth: approx. Feb 2008
Location: Charlotte, NC

Frankly, I can't believe she is still hasn't found one. She is such a sweet and loving girl.

She suffered from severe hip dysplasia but had FHO surgery done on both hips and recovered well. Long term prognosis after successful FHO surgery is excellent. She might not be as mobile as other dogs but the source of pain and arthritis is no longer a concern.

All she needs now is a loving home and little bit of attention to her weight and exercise regime.

She's been waiting so long, she truly deserves to finally have a loving family of her own.

If you have any questions about Shiloh or the Hovawart breed, talk to my dear friend @Kenzo_HW or read related articles on his blog Kenzo the Hovawart.

  1. Thanks for bringing Shiloh in the spot light once more. I cannot think of a dog that has deserved to be adopted as much as Shiloh. She has been waiting way too long.
