A Best Friend, An Angel for Life...
Yes, it's true ... a heart can break at any age. Meet Jan, a 10 year old male Cockapoo who recently lost his sibling to euthanasia after both were dumped in the NYC shelter system. In the shuffle and scuffle of it all, Jan and his brother were separated, and only Jan came out alive. Without his sibling (who we are told was put down due to unspecified illness) Jan is lost and depressed. He is somewhat visually impaired, which does not help his situation, as he may have relied upon his b rother to orient himself and get around. Jan is nevertheless a gentle boy with no aggression who we hope will be able to bond again with another dog, as well as with another family. His visual deficit aside, he is otherwise a healthy senior who deserves to live the rest of his life out in comfort and security. Jan has been neutered, microchipped, is current on all shots and has tested negative for heartworm. He will shortly be treated to a dental cleaning as well as a professional grooming and will be sporting a new leash and collar at the time of going home.

We do not know for sure if a heart can heal at any age, but perhaps you can be the one to try for Jan.
