What age is senior to you? Being a senior has some perks for humans, such as a discount at the movies or restaurants. But, being a senior dog is a little different. Some people shy away from senior dogs. The excuses are: I can’t take it when I lose them, it’s too heartbreaking for me. I want a puppy so I can train them from an early age. I’m afraid that there will be too many vet visits with a senior dog.
Giving a home and love to a senior dog for the last few years of their lives–is very rewarding.
Max is one of the senior dogs that lives at the rescue. Max is a prime example of a senior dog. I promised his family that I would keep him here at the rescue, until he passed on. We laugh at him daily. He is at least 11 years, and he still runs, bays and plays with a ball. Sometimes he talks a little too much, but that is Max.
This is Max on his adventure. He needed help to get on the seat, but he has fun outside with the dogs and following everyone around.
Some of the senior dogs here that are still waiting for their families are. Lady, Dusty, Dot..Dot, Elvis and Samantha.
Here are photos of each of them, and if you are interested in adopting a senior dog, then give us a call.
This is Lady–she is 7 or 8 years, and was used for breeding. She would make a great companion dog for someone.
This is Dusty. He is so sweet. A big boy who loves hanging out with you. 7 or 8 years!
This is Dot…Dot. He has gotten so chunky. Just doesn’t get enough exercise. A great dog, that needs a home. 7 years!
This is Elvis and Samantha. They love to be called Elvi and Sammy. Both were in rough shape when they came here. They are both over 7 years old. Great little lap dogs–and they have a story to tell.
And last is my personal sweetheart “Lover Boy !” He has been waiting so long for the right family to come along. He is over 7 years now and when he wags his tail, he moves his entire body. He loves walks and likes to be talked to. A great doggie!
My next post may be sharing about the puppies we have at the rescue, -but don’t forget the senior dogs out there. They have so much love and devotion to give. It would be a blessing for them to spend the rest of their days with a loving family.
