Did You Know That November is Adopt A Senior Dog Month?
Have you ever considered adopting an older dog? Well if you haven’t you definitely should.
There are many great reasons why you should consider adopting a Senior dog. Here are just a few:
- Senior dogs have manners. Very often older dogs have the basic obedience commands, such as sit, down, and stay mastered. Plus they are usually house broke and potty trained which will save their new owner a lot of time.
- Senior pet’s aren’t usually destructive. Anyone that has had a puppy or young dog, knows they go through the chewing and destructive stage. You can bypass this altogether by adopting an older dog. They have much less energy and require significantly less exercise than a younger dog.
- Senior dogs are great companions for senior citizens. Older people enjoy the companionship of a pet just like anyone else. A senior dog has much less energy and makes a good companion. Plus unfortunately senior citizens have to worry about their pet outliving them, and what will happen to that pet if the the owner should pass away. By adopting a senior pet that is less likely to be a concern.
- What you see is what you get. A senior pet comes with no surprises as to what size they might get to, or what color their coat will be, or what health issues they may have. A senior pet comes to you with his own history, which makes his future much more predictable than that of puppy, so like I said, what you see is what you get.
- Adopted senior pets are grateful for your saving them. Older pets somehow seem to know the you have given them a home when no one else would. Many new owners form a close bond very quickly with their senior pet, because the pet shows them a level of attention and devotion that is unique to older adopted animals.
