Are you a resident of the Los Angeles area with a pool and a deep love for dogs? If so, you could make one senior canine’s summer.

Waylon, the 10-year-old rescue pooch you see above, has arthritis bad enough that he has trouble getting exercise. If he’s in a pool, however, he can move around without pain.

“It’s the cutest thing ever,” writes his owner, Jenny, in a Craigslist ad she posted searching for an L.A.-area pool where he could get that exercise.


“While Waylon and I are apartment-dwellers, I think, surely there is a dog-lover in the Los Angeles area with a pool, who would be willing to let me use it to give Waylon some swim therapy once or maybe twice a week, just for 20-30 minutes at a time,” the listing reads. “We’re both well-behaved and nice, I promise.”

According to the posting, Jenny would be happy to reimburse the pool owner for use of the facility or barter services in exchange for pool access.

“Making Waylon’s remaining time on the mortal coil as pain-free and fun as possible is most important to me, and if you have a pool you could let us use, I’d be so forever grateful.”

Those interested can reply to the ad here.
