This is Adopt a Senior Dog month. I would like to say a few things about adult and senior dogs. In the interest of full disclosure I must point out that I am just not a puppy person. I have always gone for the post-adolescence dog when adopting. It is so much easier.
Senior dogs do not chew up electric cords, drywall, shoes, remote controls, iPhones, or whatever is dear to you like puppies do. Senior dogs are already housebroken. Many senior dogs come already trained to basic commands. Senior dogs don’t require a lot of exercise. Many seniors still have a lot of life left in them. Best of all, senior dogs are extremely grateful for being rescued. Senior dogs know how to love you.
I recommend that you peruse http://www.petfinder.com to find the perfect friend. It will give both of you something wonderful to be thankful for this Thanksgiving.
