Description
Lee is a Senior German Shepherd at Ramapo - Bergen Animal Refuge.

The following is from the December 22, 2023 Ramapo - Bergen Animal Refuge's Facebook Post :

Lee is urgently seeking a hospice home committed to making his golden years the best of his life! This sweet old man had a rough life of neglect before being abandoned. He’s been nothing but docile and is on an effective medical regimen to treat his severe arthritis. Lee doesn’t ask for much – just a safe place to sleep and a full belly.

This sweet old man clearly had a rough life of neglect before being abandoned- we suspect a junkyard dog with itchy skin infections from a lifetime of untreated fleas and severe arthritis making it hard for him to get around. He's been nothing but sweet and very receptive to us helping him and is on a regimen of pain medications and supplements to hopefully help him be able to walk more comfortably- we have already seen some improvement! This gentle giant has low expectations out of life and doesn't even seem to know what a bed or blanket is, choosing to push them out of the way to lay on the ground:( He doesn't seem to mind other calm dogs and is soaking up all the attention from staff. No stairs definitely or slippery floors, he does best walking on grass or carpet runners. We aren't sure how long he has, but we are hoping someone will choose to open their home to him for whatever quality time he has left.
