Looking to Enjoy the Later Years: Dog of the Week

I'm Omar and, I'll just say it, I'm getting old. But I still need a loving home.

Hello there! My name is Omar and I’m from Baltimore. (Not to be confused with The Wire’s Omar – I could only hope to be that cool).  

Some people want a specific breed, others a specific size.

Some say I don’t care; I want a rescue dog. 

Well, it would be hard to find a better true rescue than me! My sweet and charming personality saved me from a kill shelter and brought me to .

Even though I’m incredibly sweet and would make an excellent companion, I’m up there in age. I’m 10 years old and true to the meaning of my name Omar, long life, I look forward to wagging my tail for as long as I can. I also have a heart murmur and coupled with my age, finding me the right home is a long shot.

So if you have always talked about taking home a rescue dog that truly needs a home, I’m the one for you! Please stop by Small Miracles and see me today. My wagging tail and happy doggy smile will quickly make you forget my age.


 is a nonprofit, no-kill shelter in Ellicott City. Each week we will feature an animal that needs a home. If you happen to pick up one of these lovelies, post a picture and let us know!
