Philly came to DRNA when his owner passed away and no one in the family wanted him. They really missed out on a great dog. This is what his foster family had to say about him:
"Philly is such a great dog. We can't believe how much energy and playfulness he has for a 10 year old. He wants to play with Gus all of the time. Unfortunately, Gus never learned how to play with other dogs, so he just looks confused. We're hoping Philly can teach him while he's here, because they could be great play buddies. They get along very well, and I think it's because Philly likes other dogs so much. In fact, this is one of the few times I think we would want to put "Needs dog buddy" on his bio page. Philly loves everyone, even cats and kids. "
Philly is happy, playful, energetic, snuggly, and adorable. It's really hard to believe he's 10 years old. He wants a fenced yard to run around in, and a buddy to do it with. He is completely house-trained, and does well on a leash. He's getting used to being crated but doesn't love it.
He is on special food to prevent kidney/bladder stones since he had a prior surgery to remove them. As of now, he is stone free and we would like to keep it that way! Philly just had a dental so he is ready to go!

Philly's adoption fee is $150 but waived for senior adopters.
