Adopting a Senior Dog

It seems like puppies get all of the adoption love, but senior dogs can provide years of love and joy to the right family. Senior dogs may require a bit more care than younger dogs, but they can provide some unforeseen benefits. “When you adopt a puppy, you only see a tiny sliver of their personality, which will undoubtedly change over the years. While that can be an exciting adventure, it might not be good for a family looking for a calm dog that will love their kids, or an older couple who wants a dog who will relax with them. Senior dogs have a stable temperament, which the shelter staff will be able to tell you all about.” (Care.com)
