Gus a 13 year old yellow lab needs new home or rescue - westchester ny

Hello.  My family is moving abroad in January and sadly, we have not been able to find anyone willing to take our 13 year old Lab.  This is incredibly sad for us be we cannot take him with us and don't know what to do.  Could you possibly post his picture and let me know if you know of anyone who might be interested?  He just had his senior wellness exam a couple of months ago.  He is fine (just old) and is up to date with all of his shots.  He's fantastic with children.  His name is Gus.  We live in Bedford Corners.  Thank you for any help you can offer.

Simply getting to Costa Rica from our house will require over 10 hours in a crate, which I feel is cruel and traumatic.  I'm not going to pass Gus off to just anyone.  However, if there is a loving family here who would welcome him into their home, I feel that it would be best for him.  We are returning in 1 year so even if someone just chose to foster him, that would be great.  
Pic is attached.  He is a 13 year old yellow lab.  He is up to date with all shots and had his senior wellness exam a few months ago.  He is very mellow and great with kids of all ages.  He takes one arthritis pill with his dinner.  It is simply added to his dinner bowl.  It is a $4 generic at Target.  He eats twice a day.  He needs a home without a lot of stairs leading to the first level.
Please let me know if there are other details required for the post.  Otherwise, I can answer any questions directly that a potential host family might have.
Thank you.
