About

Do you love dogs? Large very gentle dogs?

A homebound senior man in Wilmington would enjoy your company and so would his wonderful dog Bonnie the Rottweiler. Bonnie's human is an expert buyer and seller of baseball cards. He is an avid Angels fan. He is a smart and engaging man whose health problems keeps him isolated and lonely. He would enjoy your company for just 1 hour per week in his home in a pleasant residential neighborhood of Wilmington.

If you are a bit hesitant about being with his dog, the dog can stay outside while you visit. No worries. She is big but quite gentle. I have visited with her and she is very sweet.
