Most people who are looking to adopt a dog from the shelter want a puppy – and it’s easy to see why. After all, puppies are adorable, right? Right. However, adopting an older dog is not something you should dismiss.
Not only will you help save a life but you will also gain a friend that will stick by your side no matter what. Older dogs are usually already trained, which means they know basic commands which can definitely make life easier, especially if you have a busy schedule.
Also, older dogs are usually a lot calmer than younger dogs and require less supervision, which means you won’t have to constantly worry about them breaking something, ruining your furniture or your favorite pair of shoes.
Animal shelters are filled with healthy and active older dogs that are in desperate need of a home and a loving family.
Senior dogs are often the last to get adopted from the shelter. What’s even worse is that some of them never find a loving home. So make sure to share this sweet video with all of your friends and family online so that more people are aware of the incredible joys and satisfactions that come with adopting a senior dog.
