November is Adopt A Senior Dog Month

By
Services for Real Estate Pros with Referral Group Incorporated

I am frequently behind the curve, but in this case........I was ahead. November is adopt a senior pet month and I adopted my new friend DD on October 26th. DD is thirteen. This sweet girl lost her home when one of her owners died and the other had to go into assisted living where dogs are not allowed. DD is not my first senior dog adoption. I had lost my best boy, Billy the Kid, in July and wanted to honor him. That was my motivation but there are many reasons to adopt a senior dog. 

Seniors find themselves in need often. Many people don't make arrangements for their pets when they can, and this is what brings many older ones into shelters where they die, alone and confused. So the there is another thing to do for current pet owners.........make plans for your pets now. Some seniors are simply abandoned by people who can't afford the costs of caring for the problems that often come with aging. Still other seniors have found themselves  without anyone for years because adopters want puppies or young dogs.

Senior dogs are grateful for any attention and usually come house trained and responsive.  Seniors are great company for senior people as well. I hope that more and more people step up and save a senior. In life if you give, you will often get. I know I have.

Hi Sheila,
It is sad when the senior pets lose their owners and are confused and scared when they end up in a shelter or new home. I agree that people need to make advanced arrangements for the care of their pets.  The transition would be so much easier if their new home is with someone they already know.

Thank you so much Carol. It is tragic that so many die alone and scared needlessly.     Sheila

Sheila- look at that face!  We adopted our last dog from a hunting lease. We're not sure how old she was but we're guessing about 5. She'd never been in a house or car but she adapted quickly.

You're ahead of the curve alright, and a great example for all of us.  Puppies are so much work and a senior dog makes a lot of sense.
