A REHOMING centre is looking to place an old dog into a new retirement home.

15-year-old Jack Russell Terrier Max is a true golden oldie and was placed at Dogs Trust Merseyside when his owner could no longer care for him.

Due to his age, Max has trouble hearing and can live with children aged eight and above. 

A spokeswoman for Dogs Trust Merseyside said: "Max is a spectacular 15 year old golden oldie, looking for a new retirement home.

"Unfortunately his owner could no longer care for him so this much loved laid back lad is hoping to find a new best pal.

Wirral Globe:

"He's very affectionate and still enjoys mooching about on a walk.

"Like many of us as we get older, Max is a little hard of hearing now despite those enormous ears, but that certainly doesn’t stop him enjoying life.

"His previous foster carer said he was lovely to live with and he can live with children aged 8 and above.

"He is happy to be the only dog in the home so if you're looking for some quiet company or a TV watching buddy, Max is your boy.

"His only dislike in life is being alone so he’d love his new owners to be around so he can be there constant canine companion."
