Why Older Dogs Are Awesome

Good older dogs are likely housebroken and past destructive chewing. Lower energy suits many owners.  

Trained & Calmer  

Skip frustrating puppy behaviors. Seniors bond fast and just want to relax with you.

Instant Companions

There's no judgment or demands, just silent support and unconditional affection.

Comforting Presence

Shelters know senior personalities well, allowing better pairing with new owners.  

Better Match Ability 

Adopting an older dog needing home gives immense satisfaction in providing for them.

Sense of Purpose

While still hard losing them, older dogs typically have fewer remaining years requiring care.

Shorter Commitment 

Retired seniors make the best additions for adults also entering slower-paced lifestages.

Easier Transition
