An OAP pooch is looking for his first forever home at the grand age of 14. All he needs now is a human to realise there's still plenty of life left in this old dog!

Terry is an independent pooch who is used to living life on his own terms. The mixed-breed has never had a home or a human to look after him.

Instead, he was what the people of his town call a 'people's dog' - that's a half-stray pooch who hangs around the town but doesn't actually belong to anyone.

Time takes its toll on Terry

For a long time, Terry was perfectly happy with this arrangement. He could come and go as he pleased, and there was also somebody nearby to dish out a snack or a stroke.

But, as it does to all of us, time has taken a toll on Terry. The once sprightly pup is now entering his retirement and clearly needs a little bit of looking after.

So when locals noticed Terry had lost some weight and developed a nasty skin condition, they decided it was time to find this 'old man' a real home.

Terry needs once last chance

They picked Terry up and left him in the loving care of the canine experts at the Protection of Animals Dogs and Cats APA-Pegasos rescue centre. The staff treated Terry's skin condition and are now trying to match him with the perfect human.

Terry might be getting on in years, but he's a friendly old fella with lots of love left in his heart. He just wants someone to share it with. Let's hope he finds that special person soon. Then Terry can really start enjoying his golden years.
