Bowser is an 11 year old neutered male Pekingese from WV whose owner was willing to surrender him to The Senior Dog Sanctuary of Maryland to get him the vet care he needed. His owner could not financially care for him and he needed to have skin checked for possible infection or allergies. This has been ongoing and untreated for a long time. Bowser does have dry spots on his back that he had scratched into open wounds. His skin was irritated but seems better after he was given a medicated bath to help with the dry patches on his back. The previous owner said Bowser absolutely loves bath time. She says the word and he runs and jumps into the tub himself. He absolutely loves it and loves towel drying.
Bowser has lived with kids and done fine. He was very sweet to his transport volunteer, all the staff and volunteers at the Senior Dog Sanctuary of Maryland, his foster mom and everyone he's met (dogs, adults and teens). His foster mom fell in love with him at first sight. He really craves and responds to attention. Bowser loves cuddles and hugs and absolutely loves his belly rubbed. He's been sleeping with the foster mom and 2 of the resident dogs on the bed.The Senior Dog Sanctuary of MD
