The 11-year-old lab mix named Cletus is, in many ways, the perfect pet: he loves to play catch, doesn’t chew on anything except for his own food, and seems to spend most of his days with a big, goofy dog-smile spread across his face.
However, hiding behind that warm smile is a sad story.
Cletus was found one day at a playground in Snellville, GA, all alone with a box of toys and a heartbreaking note:
“My name is Cletus!
My owner decided she could not keep me anymore because she does not have a place to stay.
I am a very good dog. I’m 11 years old, but I still play like a puppy.
I don’t chew anything but food. I’m housebroken. I’m great with kids.
I play ball, catch Frisbees, and love to give hugs.
Can you please find me a home? I don’t want to go to the shelter.
