When people adopt dogs many are seeking out puppies or dogs that are on the younger side. I can understand the logic behind that. We get attached to our animals and they quickly become integral members of our family. We want to soak up all of the years we can with our fur babies! However, there is something noble and amazing about adopting a dog in their golden years. For one thing, you don't have to worry about training them. That's a plus! The middle of the night wake ups and accidents will be a lot less with an older dog. And many times older dogs can be the sweetest most tender souls. Just like puppies, they are deserving of love too!
Meet this 80 pound senior boy named Bandit:
This guy has been in the shelter all of his 11 years of life! Bandit is neutered, microchipped, housetrained and up to date on his vaccines. Bandit likes car rides (as you can see)
He also loves walks and is just looking for a home to enjoy the finer things in his senior years.
He is not a fan of other dogs or cats and should be the only pet in the home. He is on some comfort medication for his achy bones as well. But, he is a gentle, kind, loving guy. He should have the opportunity to live his days in the lap of luxury. Could you be the home for his senior years? If you want any information on him, please reach out to the shelter he is currently at here. Let’s help get this guy a home!
