Senior Month at 12 Hills Dog Rescue

I was looking at Petfinder.com and saw a help article on posting for senior dogs. November is “Senior Dog” month for pet lovers and those of us in the rescue business.
Typically every day is senior month at the rescue. It seems we always have a few seniors residing there, and some will be here for the rest of their lives. It is a good time to share about the rewards that senior dogs can give us. AND–there some, I listed just a few.

1. They aren’t puppies! Puppies get in to everything and they require lots and lots of your attention.
2. Seniors like to have fun, but it is usually in short bursts and they just want to hang out with you
3. Sometimes they are already trained, and so the hard work is done
4. MOST OF ALL–THEY JUST WANT YOU TO LOVE THEM!

Of course, we know there is a downsides to having a senior dog, but that is another posting. Here are some of the seniors we have had and some that are still waiting at 12 Hills.
