Most people look to adopt young dogs which make great long lasting companions, but have you considered adopting or sponsoring a mature adult or senior? Senior dogs have the highest likelihood of being surrendered and passed over in rescues and shelters, but they often make wonderful pets and enjoy years of fulfilling family life in their second homes. Seniors often make easier transitions into their new home environments since they have already had years of experience! Look at adopting a senior as adopting a dog that has had long term foster care and training. Many times you will end up with the “perfect dog” who is already housebroken and well mannered! More time relaxing and enjoying calm playtime, less household items and toys destroyed – sounds like a good deal for a family with younger children or someone not looking for a high energy dog.
