Tik Tok is a darling of a dog who was featured on this page over a year ago. Sadly, little has changed since we last caught up with him.

After losing his owner to illness, and other family members unwilling to take him in, he remains a lonely soul. It’s hard to believe, as this 14-year-old Shiba mix with a baby face is a true sweetheart. At just over 12 kilograms, he’s also easy to care for and not a problem in even a small apartment. His legs aren’t quite what they used to be, which means he’s not looking for long walks or dashes around the neighborhood. A short stroll, on the other hand, would be heavenly and we’re hoping he can find someone who agrees.
