An elderly Dallas woman is looking for a good home for her aging dog, Pierre.
"He's about like me with the old age," Willie Wells joked. "He's my only family."
Wells, who is 73-years old, has a few health issues.
"My eyes are blurry all the time. They say I got dementia and arthritis and I can't stoop or bend," Wells said. "If my health was good you wouldn't be sitting here!"
The latest news from around North Texas.
Wells says she can't care for her 12-year old Cockapoo, Pierre, anymore the way she should.
"I'm sorry," she cooed to the dog as he sat on her lap Wednesday evening. "It's hard, but I got to do what's right for him."
A neighbor told Stephanie Timko with the Southern Dallas Animal Initiative that Wells wanted her help.
"That's what makes Miss Wells extraordinary," Timko said. "Because this is all about Pierre and his well-being."
Timko reached out to Dallas Dogrrr, a rescue group, to help get Pierre adopted by a good family.
"Oh, it's going to be tougher than I thought," said Wells tearfully. "I want 'em just to love and take care of him and let him know he is loved."
