Salute to Seniors

"Old dogs, like old shoes, are comfortable. They might be a bit out of shape and a little worn around the edges, but they fit well".
~ Bonnie Wilcox, 'Old Dogs, Old Friends'
Many people think of puppies when it is time to add to their fur families. Don't get me wrong, puppies are adorable and sweet-faced. They will give you tons of love and bring lots of laughter to your home. Puppies are also extremely hard, full-time work. Between potty training, socialization, crate-training, obedience training, and puppy-related vet bills, you're looking at at least 18-24 months of puppy-hood.

Perhaps you are reluctant to adopt a senior dog because you fear that your time with your new furry family member will be short-lived? The privilege of loving a senior dog makes every single day special, as you share love, friendship, and a special relationship that grows stronger with the knowledge that you have given this dog a second chance at life. The love that grows from this knowledge is stronger than the pain of eventual separation.

Below are the senior dogs that we currently have available for adoption:

Bradie (10-year-old female Yorkshire Terrier)

Marilyn (12-year-old female Schnauzer/Poodle mix)
