Eric O’Grey asked the shelter for an “obese, middle-aged dog” — just like him
A nutritionist recommended that O’Grey get a rescue dog. She said it would force him to get outside, walk, and interact with others. The moment Eric met Peety everything changed. Not just for Eric, but for Peety, too, whose previous life had been a sad one: He’d been left alone in a backyard and no one played with him or gave him exercise. The dog had arthritis and all kinds of skin problems. Before they both knew it, Eric and Peety were best buddies, who gave each other a new lease on life.
