Patch Pets: Daytona Is a Milestone Dog

Loving home wanted for 500th senior pet rescued by Young at Heart.

Hi! I’m Daytona 500! Yep, that is the world’s Most Awesome Name, given to me, the 500th senior pet rescued by Young at Heart Pet Rescue! 

Yessir, 500 is a big number when you’re talking about senior pets saved, and I couldn’t be more proud to be the big 5-0-0! 

You see, being an 8-year-old shepherd/collie mix at a shelter where they have to euthanize for space, I was “numero uno” in line for a very sad ending. But Young at Heart just couldn’t leave an awesome dog like me behind, and so, I found myself on a car ride to a new life! 

And now I wait patiently for a forever family, one that likes sweet, waggy dogs like me! I’m a very good boy, housebroken and trustworthy, and better yet, have had professional training! Yep, I had some manners to learn, and so I know them really well now, and even come with an in-home training session with my trainer on adoption day! 

I am healthy and oh-so-loveable, and now all I need is a family to love! I love to snuggle, and enjoy a good scratch behind the ears. I’m a leaner, too, so the more I like something, the more I lean into you. It’s kind of endearing, if I do say so myself. 

I would make a fabulous companion for that special person that’s waiting for a handsome guy like me! I’m healthy and already neutered, up-to-date on my vaccinations, and microchipped. My adoption fee of $165 allows Young at Heart Pet Rescue to help other older dogs and cats like me get a second chance at a happily ever after. Just fill out an adoption application to arrange a visit.
