We can all do this...I have a senior now...alpha, but I have already done this once. I adopted a 12 year old Golden. She was with us til 16 and I know it was the best 4 years of her life...I will do it again! You?
My Yellow Lab was 8 y/o when I adopted him. He's 15 now and he will be with me until his last breath. I know he's already lived past his life expectancy but the vet said he's in as good of shape as can be expected for his age.
I adopted 2 senior yellow Labs and hope they will live to a very old age with quality of life. They are both spoiled rotten. I love them and would not have it any other way. My best friends.
I adopted a senior without even knowing! The rescue said he was 3-4 yrs old but the vet said more like 7-9 yrs old! OMG, I am in love with him and am so blessed that God placed him in my life <3 Seniors ROCK!
Jacqui, I adopted a senior without knowing it too! The rescue said he was 3 or 4. I looked at his face starting to get grey and the rescue said he might be 5. I adopted him and two vets, independently of each other, said he was 7 or 8. That was 7 years ago so he's 15 now! I know I could have returned him to the rescue group but I was already in love. He's perfect and it was the best decision I've ever made. Senior dogs definitely rock!
I totally agree Darla! Thank you for rescuing <3
In February I had great good fortune of meeting a sweet 9 yesr old dog by the name of Rocky. I had gone to a rescue to see and adopt a 2 yesr old border collie but Rocky came into the room and into my heart.
Schultz Senior Dachshund Sanctuary in NJ here, where we specialize in SENIOR Dachshund rescue. Thank you for pledging to help a senior dog today!
I wanted to adopt a senior dog. Fred and his younger brother were surrendered due to divorce and ended up in rescue. They were bonded and I wanted them both to join our family of now 5 dachshunds. Fred is the oldest and love him like he has been with me all his life.
certamente! quando I miei 5 cani non ci saranno più prenderò un vecchietto e così I faremo compagnia.
The shelter at which we are going to volunteer had a senior doggie there on SAturday. She (he?) look sooo sad as if she had given up! I really wish we could have taken her but we already have a full house. We were there for the 1st time Sat. so really didn't get a chance to find out about her. Hopefully she will be adopted by the time we go back! I cried for her!
I have a dog she is 6 / 7 years and 2 Cats 3 Years and they is staying with me. No way they are going nowhere they are me and my husband’s Babies... Some Human Have no Heart or Feeling hope Karma get them good and heard. This is so sad.. People some du this to any Animal should be banned from have any Animal for Life. Bloody Asshold........ We had a Cat She was Born in or house and she died in ore house she was over 22 years. We still miss her and all the Doggy Cats Bonnie and small Birds may they all RIP♥♥♥♥♥.
I took the pledge....I already adopted a senior dog as my "first" dog (first dog since my childhood pet). Seniors are an absolute joy. They ask for so little but give everything. I also think they know they've been given one last chance and they're not about to screw it up. My neighbor adopted an 8 y/o Golden Retriever and was amazed at how easily the dog fit into their life. He said he would definitely do it again.
In ending this comment, I will put what I put on ALL of my outgoing...
In ending this comment, I will put what I put on ALL of my outgoing emails: "Adopting a senior dog isn't about the number of breaths they have yet to take, but the number of times they will take your breath away." (author unknown).
I have already adopted seniors. They are wonderful.
