Senior dogs often stay at the rescue much longer, waiting for that special someone to give them a forever home. It can be heart-wrenching to see these wonderful dogs, full of love, passed by. These are the “easy” dogs. They enjoy a nice walk, a good scratch behind the ears, and a nice soft bed. In return, they usually come fully trained and greet you at the door after a hard-days work with a wagging tail and a face full of love.
People worry about the heartbreak of not having the dog long enough, however, when we hear from previous adopters of our seniors, it is almost unanimous; even though they would love to have the dog for longer, it feels great to give a senior a wonderful home for the rest of their life – and the adopters feel they get so much in return from their “new” dog!
