Comments:  Kilkenny came to us from an animal control where he was dumped by his owner. Not sure why, suddenly at 9yrs old, they decided they did not want him. He is a nice boy who does not act his age at all. We kept verifying with our vet that he indeed is 9-10 yrs old because he acts more like a 3yr old dog. He loves to run all around the yard, loves to jump up to say hi, gets the zoomies regularly, and just is a silly boy. There is a lot of life left in this boy and he is looking for a home that will take him for walks and romps in the yard.

Kilkenny does fine with the non-dominant dogs in his foster home, but truly, this is probably a dog that would prefer to be an only dog. We want teenage and older kids for him as he came in with some food bowl issues that we have worked with and gotten better. He came to us so thin that he was a bit protective of his food. Obviously, someone did not do right by our wonderful boy, but our promise to him is that his next home will be his forever home. Will that be with you?
