Senior Sunday – The Old Dog House

This weeks Senior Sunday post focus’ on The Old Dog House in Jacksonville, FL.

The Old Dog House


 

From The Old Dog House website

The Old Dog House is Northeast Florida’s first nonprofit, 501(c)(3) charitable organization dedicated to giving older and senior dogs a second chance at a new life. At so many shelters, the age of a dog determines its chances of reaching the adoption floor to find a new forever home. As a result, many wonderful dogs are denied the ability to live out their lives in dignity, surrounded by love.

The Old Dog House aims to enlighten the public to the joys of owning an older or senior dog through educational programs and to place rescued dogs into true forever homes through adoption programs. The dogs that come into the care of The Old Dog House will remain in our care until adopted. We rely solely on donations from the public to support our organization. 100% of donations received are used for the care and rehabilitation of the dogs at The Old Dog House. Every penny makes a difference and is greatly appreciated.

Our intent is to re-home the older and senior dogs we rescue locally and rehabilitate. Sometimes, re-homing is not an option due to medical, behavioral, or physical issues. In these cases, the dog will remain a resident of The Old Dog House for the remainder of their life. We call these dogs ‘Permanent Residents.’

Every dog at The Old Dog House is viewed and treated as part of the family. We do not have kennels, runs, or cages, rather they live in a true home environment with all of the comforts of home.

Seniors have a lot to teach, we just need to be willing to watch, listen, and learn… (Divinity’s Dad, 2012)


 

Here are some, but not all of the senior dogs currently available for adoption from The Old Dog House.

Ellie

Ellie

Ellie is a very sweet little older lady! Ellie is about 13-years old and thinks she is still a younger dog. Ellie has good house manners, really enjoys the company of people and other dogs, and loves to explore the yard. She is good in the car and has never met a stranger. Ellie is in good health besides being heartworm positive. Because of her age, we are treating her with the slow kill method. Ellie also has a slight ligament tear in one of her back legs which causes her to only lightly weight bear. That sure doesn’t stop her from running around! Ellie gets laser therapy weekly which helps with the pain and inflammation. The tear is slowly healing. Ellie would probably like to have a doggie friend in her new home.

Lily

Lily

Lily is smiling for the camera, it’s one of her best talents! Lily is slowly learning how to be a pet. It’s a slow process, especially because we believe she spent her 8-years outside as a puppy factory. Now, it’s ALL love, compassion and NO more puppies for Lily.

Sasha

Sasha

Sasha is a sweet and funny girl. Sasha loves being with her people, playing with toys, hunting for lizards, and taking naps! Sasha is an active girl and loves to go for walks. She enjoys the company of other dogs, but doesn’t necessarily need a companion dog at her new home. We think Sasha is about 12-years old. She is spayed, current on vaccinations, microchipped. Sasha is heartworm positive and will be treated soon. Sasha also has seasonal allergies that are managed with medication.

Senior Sunday – The Oldies Club

Today we cross the pond again to visit the Oldies Club for this weeks Senior Sunday post. The Oldies Club is centered in Lancashire, England, but lists senior dogs for adoption throughout most of the U.K.

Note: The Oldies Club also have senior cats available for adoption. I’ll write a separate post about these senior cats in a few weeks!

The Oldies Club


 

From The Oldies Club website

The Oldies Club is a dog rescue that finds forever homes for older dogs (7+). The Oldies Club also helps other UK rescues by promoting their old dogs.

We assist in the provision and maintenance of care and shelter for stray, neglected and unwanted dogs, in particular older dogs, and to assist in the protection of dogs from ill usage, cruelty and suffering.

The Oldies Club is a dog rescue, run solely by volunteers, that specializes in rescuing and re-homing older dogs – aged 7-years plus. We first came into existence in the Spring of 2005, and in March 2007 The Oldies Club proudly became Registered Charity.

Here at The Oldies Club, a small volunteer-run dog rescue registered charity, we have helped over 5,000 homeless old dogs in rescue to be discovered by new, loving families, thanks to our popular website.

To date The Oldies Club has re-homed 861-dogs –- we also promote old dogs that are in other rescues, by carefully crafting descriptions of them and publicizing them on our much-loved website.

The Oldies Club’s web team consists of seven dog-mad volunteers who spend their spare time writing about dogs they have never met, probably never will meet, and yet, after writing about each old dog’s plight and how it came to be in rescue in its twilight years, we feel we know so well. The rescues we work with send information about the oldies in their care that they would like us to promote, but often we need to dig a bit deeper to get that extra nugget of information that will help the oldie find a home. We sometimes ask for more photos to try to ensure each oldie looks its best. Or we might ask if the oldie would be happy to live with cats, dogs, or children, or if it is good in the car. All those extra little bits of information might be just the must-have feature that someone is looking for in their new dog. We also use our personal experience of adopting and living with our own old dogs to help us present oldies in a positive light, to give each oldie the best chance of finding that elusive new home.

Here are some, but not all of the senior dogs currently available for adoption from The Oldies Club.

Sheba: located in the North East Region

Sheba

Sheba is a 10-year old German Shepherd x Husky girl who was rescued from very unsavory living conditions. Sheba is now in the care of Happier Days for Strays, kenneled in Sunderland, and they would love to see her in a happy new home for Christmas.

Sheba has a lovely character and she is good with dogs. She can be rehomed to live with sensible children aged over 5-years too, but she hasn’t been tested with cats. Sheba is easy to walk when she is wearing a head collar.

To learn more about Sheba, click the link to her Oldies ClubAdoption page

 

Cooper: located in the North West Region

Cooper

Super Cooper is a gem of a dog! Cooper is an 11-year old Lab cross in the care of Freshfields Animal Rescue. Having spent years stressed in kennels, unable to relax and show his true, joyous nature, he now has his very own room, surrounded by lovely solid walls to keep him safe, he’s now optimistic about his future.

Cooper wants to be an only pet in an adult only household and he needs his new (very lucky!) owner to spend time getting to know him. A quiet home, steady routine and an owner or two who are kind and confident will make this diamond shine!

To learn more about Cooper, click the link to his Oldies ClubAdoption page

 

Toffee: located in the Central Region

Toffee

Toffee is a beautiful 10-year old crossbreed lady and she’s ready to find her perfect forever home. Toffee is in the care of Animal Helpline and she was very nervous when she first arrived, finding the change quite overwhelming. With the help of the rescue volunteers, Toffee has come on a long way, but she’ll need a quiet home where she can settle at her own pace.

Toffee will make a wonderfully loyal companion. She enjoys her walks and when she’s around people she trusts she has a lovely waggy tail and walks very nicely beside you. Toffee gets along well with her kennel mate and the rescue thinks she would benefit from living with another calm, confident dog to help show her the way.

To learn more about Toffee, click the link to her Oldies ClubAdoption page

 

Tiger Lily: located in the South East Region

Tiger Lily

Tiger Lily is a sweet 15-year old Border Terrier Cross girl who came into the Oldies Club rescue after her owner went into a care home. Tiger Lily is in an Oldies Club foster home in Oxfordshire, waiting for someone to offer her a lovely new home.

Tiger Lily loves to have company and becomes anxious when left alone. She will cope if she has to be left for a short time, but she would like to have someone with her nearly all the time, although she isn’t a lap dog and simply wants to be in the same room as you. Tiger Lily is house trained and happily goes outside to toilet, but she may slip up if not out in time.

To learn more about Tiger Lily, click the link to her Oldies ClubAdoption page

 

Bilbo: located in the South West Region

Bilbo

Sweet little Bilbo hasn’t had an easy life. Bilbo came from a home where he was neglected, both physically and mentally, and he arrived in rescue in very poor health. Bilbo had to have surgery to remove several rotten teeth and numerous tumors, poor boy. Luckily he’s now safe and comfortable with Forest of Dean Dog Rescue and is being fostered in Gloucestershire.

Bilbo is 11-years old and he’s a super little dog. Now that he has no pain or discomfort he’s really flourishing and is a cheerful, outgoing little chap. Bilbo loves going for walks and meeting new people, and he gets on very well with other dogs.

To learn more about Bilbo, click the link to his Oldies ClubAdoption page

 

Apple: located in Wales

Apple

This wonderfully gorgeous lady is Apple. Apple. is only 7-years old and is a magnificent example of a German Shepherd cross who is as friendly as she looks. Apple. is seeking a new home through no fault of her own and Animal Rescue Cymru is helping her with this.

Apple. has the most lovely disposition; she is loving and friendly and she will thrive in an active family where she can have lots of human companionship.

Apple. adores children and is good with other dogs. Her only fault is that she doesn’t like cats, but what proper dog does? She is super playful and energetic. Apple. hopes her new owners enjoy playing and going for walks as much as she does! She is good off lead and loves running about. Her recall is good unless she picks up an intriguing scent which requires further investigation.

To learn more about Apple., click the link to her Oldies ClubAdoption page

 

Ozzy: located in Scotland

Ozzie

Ozzy would love to meet you! This lovely 8-year old Springer Spaniel loves people and getting a fuss. This darling boy is currently being fostered through Dogs Trust West Calder. Ozzy is super friendly and loves playing with his toys. He gets on well with other dogs and he is always ready to meet and greet new people and dogs and to enjoy their company.

Ozzy enjoys human company so much that he would prefer his new family to be around a lot of the time to keep him company. He would love a home with a secure garden to play in and not too many steps please! Ozzy does have some mobility issues so is unable to take very long walks, but likes to keep busy playing puzzle games.

Ozzy is fine to live with other dogs and children 10-years and older. If you have plenty of time and love to give, Ozzy would love to meet you!

Senior Sunday – Thulani Senior German Shepherd Rescue

This weeks Senior Sunday post focus’ on Thulani Senior German Shepherd Rescue in Lodi, CA.

Thulani Senior German Shepherd Rescue

Note: The Thulani Program rescues abandoned and terminally ill or very old German shepherd dogs from California and Nevada, and finds them permanent or adoptive foster homes.


From the Thulani Senior German Shepherd Rescue website

The Thulani Senior German Shepherd Rescue (TSGSR) is a rescue that focuses on helping German Shepherds with limited life expectancy, typically measured in months or possibly as much as a year, due to terminal illnesses or simply old age. Medical condition is not a restriction as long as the dog has some quality life left to it, no matter how short that time may be.

Thulani has evolved since 2009 (Our History) from helping a few dogs each year during the first few year, to one in which we help about 70 new dogs each year. We started by servicing animal shelters primarily in the greater San Francisco Bay region, but our responsibilities have expanded to include all of California and Nevada (Our Area). This expansion has been driven primarily by the widespread need for the types of services that Thulani provides, and by the general lack of other organizations able to provide these services. Our goal is to save 100 dogs annually, a number we estimate will be necessary to prevent any Thulani-qualified GSD from dying prematurely in a shelter.

GOALS

* To rescue terminally ill German Shepherds from immediate life threatening situations at animal shelters or from other circumstances in which the dog is in immediate danger

* To provide immediate medical, physical, and living-situation support in order to re-establish a quality existence for the dog

* To provide a permanent family home for the dog in which it can live out its natural life in a warm and loving environment for as much quality life as it has left. This home is effectively a hospice sanctuary for the German Shepherd.


Seniors have a lot to teach, we just need to be willing to watch, listen, and learn… (Divinity’s Dad, 2012)


 

Here are some, but not all of the senior dogs currently available for adoption from the Thulani Senior German Shepherd Rescue.

Brandy T.

Brandy T

Brandy T. is a 12-year old female German Shepherd long-coat who was owner surrendered to the LA County shelter. When she arrived, Brandy showed signs of neglect that included matted fur and needed medical attention.

Brandy is a lovely girl and, while a bit stiff, she is still quite mobile. Her rear end is weak, but with some gentle exercise and pain medication we think she will regain much of her younger mobility.

Rocko T.

Rocko T.

Rocko T. is a handsome 10-year old male German Shepherd mix with a Black/White/Grey coat which was owner surrendered to the SEAACA shelter in Downey Calif (Southern Calif). Rocko was also left with Macy T.

Like Rocko, Macy is also a 10-year old German Shepherd mix and both dogs have been rescued by TSGSR.

Babe T.

Babe T.

Babe T. is a 12-year old female German Shepherd – Malinois mix that is energetic and happy. Babe is just a sweetheart.

Babe entered the TSGSR program from the Solano County Shelter where she was owner surrendered. Babe is very friendly to dogs and people but does not interact well with cats.

To learn more about Babe, click the link to her Thulani Senior German Shepherd RescueAdoption page

 

Rockee T.

Rockee T.

Rockee T. is a 10-year old male German Shepherd Dog (GSD) that was owner surrendered to the Downey LA County Shelter in S. Cal. Rockee’s former owners claimed he was sick and they did not want to pay to take him to a veterinarian. For a case like this the shelter would normally be Rockee’s final resting place.

Thankfully, due to many vigilant animal advocates, and the Miracle GSD Network, the shelter was NOT the last stop for Rockee. Due to their efforts and the Thulani Senior GSR (TSGSR) Rockee has been rescued from the Shelter and will have a chance to find a loving adoptive home.

To learn more about Rockee, click the link to his Thulani Senior German Shepherd RescueAdoption page

 

Macy T.

Macy T.

Macy T. is a 10-year old female German Shepherd mix that was owner surrendered to the SEAACA shelter in Downey Calif (Southern Calif). On that day Macy’s owner left another dog at the shelter named Rocko T. Like Macy, Rocko is also a 10-year old German Shepherd mix and both dogs have been rescued by TSGSR.

To learn more about Macy T., click the link to her Thulani Senior German Shepherd RescueAdoption page

 

Tazmo T.

Tazmo T.

Tazmo T. is a 10-year old friendly and active male German Shepherd that was surrendered to the Stanislaus County Shelter by his prior owners. Poor Tazmo was a little lonely at the shelter and a bit confused why his prior owners left him behind. BTW… he says his friends just call him Taz.

Senior Sunday – Silver Muzzle Cottage

This weeks Senior Sunday post focus’ on the Silver Muzzle Cottage in Rapid City, MI.

Silver Muzzle Cottage


 

From the Silver Muzzle Cottage website

We’re on a mission to provide Senior, Disabled and Hospice dogs the chance to live out their remaining lives with love and dignity.

A RESCUE AND HOSPICE FOR HOMELESS SENIOR DOGS

The Silver Muzzle Cottage Rescue & Hospice is a 501c3 organization that works with shelters and pet owners throughout the state of Michigan. We are an all-volunteer-based organization that relies solely on public donations and grant funding. Our organization is proud to be a certified rescue through the Michigan Pet Fund Alliance organization and a Transfer Partner with the Michigan Humane Society.

Our internationally-recognized program strives to educate others about the problem of homelessness amongst the senior dog population. Through positive promotion, we hope to shed light on the value, beauty and grace of these dogs and the many ways they can enrich the lives of those who choose to foster or adopt them.

COTTAGE FRIENDS PROGRAM

Our volunteers are the heart and soul of our rescue. Cottage Friends volunteers enrich the lives of our rescues by taking them for walks, hikes in the woods, strolls on the beach and the occasional swim. For Cottage residents who are too limited to enjoy a more active lifestyle, quiet days on comfy dog beds and the companionship of our volunteers is all that is needed.

SENIORS FOR SENIORS PROGRAM

Through our Seniors For Seniors program, SMC volunteers take our Cottage residents to visit area nursing care facilities. This meaningful activity brings joy not only to the facility residents but to the dogs who participate.

Many canines late in their years are often found in area shelters and are quickly euthanized because their age and disabilities make them less likely to be adopted. We recognize that these dogs once gave their lives to someone, or to a family, and for a variety of reasons and factors, now find themselves in a strange, scary shelter environment or set “free” and eventually picked up as a stray.

Our team knows these dogs deserve more, that they shouldn’t die alone and afraid in a cage. Senior dogs deserve love and dignity in their final days, months and years. SMC is dedicated to the rescue, adoption and lifelong care of these senior dogs. Contact us to learn more about how you can get involved and help.

Once upon a time


Seniors have a lot to teach, we just need to be willing to watch, listen, and learn… (Divinity’s Dad, 2012)


 

Here are some, but not all of the senior dogs currently available for adoption from the Silver Muzzle Cottage.

 

Felix

Felix

Felix is a 13-year old,  small, Beagle mix. Felix is great with bigger dogs but will chase smaller dogs and cats; good with older kids, and housebroken.

Felix is partially deaf but is still very active and playful. Felix would make a great companion for a retired person looking for a buddy.

To learn more about Felix, message Silver Muzzle Cottage on Facebook @silvermuzzlecottage, or call (231) 264-8408

 

Joy

Joy

Joy is about 8-years old but was originally deemed to be a hospice dog. Joy has mammary tumors that are malignant, but can be removed. It is our plan to have these tumors removed so we can extend her life and she can live out her life in someone’s loving home. Is it yours???

Joy is good with kids/cats/dogs and is housebroken.

To learn more about Joy, message Silver Muzzle Cottage on Facebook @silvermuzzlecottage, or call (231) 264-8408

 

Lexi

Lexi

Lexi is a 14-year old male Cockapoo. Lexi has some lumps and bumps and a bit of arthritis, but loves his walks and snuggle time. He does OK with cats/dogs and would be best with kids over the age of 12. Lexi is ideal for a senior citizen who is looking for a companion dog.

To learn more about Lexi, message Silver Muzzle Cottage on Facebook @silvermuzzlecottage, or call (231) 264-8408

 

Parker

Parker

Parker is a 12-year old female Cocker-Bichon mix. Parker is great with kids/cats/dogs, has a sweet, pleasant demeanor and is housebroken.

To learn more about Parker, message Silver Muzzle Cottage on Facebook @silvermuzzlecottage, or call (231) 264-8408

 

Scout

Scout
Scout is a 12-ish year old miniature Beagle and is so sweet! He’s good with kids/cats/dogs and is a slower moving little ol’ guy. Scout does need to wear a belly band because he spent the majority of the last several years living outside. However, he’s great for this and will wait for you to put one on him as soon as he comes in from outside.

Scout weighs 21-lbs. He has a mass on his rectum that is surrounding one of his anal glands. The Vet doesn’t want to do a biopsy because it would likely become infected (because of the location) and because, if it is cancer, there isn’t anything that could be done about it. She also said that these types of tumors don’t metastasize very quickly, so he could have this for awhile without any issues.

Scout has also been neutered and has had dental work done. This boy deserves a loving home for whatever time he has left. It could be years.

To learn more about Scout, message Silver Muzzle Cottage on Facebook @silvermuzzlecottage, or call (231) 264-8408

 

Captain

Captain

Captain is approximately 11-years old and is on the road to better health. He’s good with kids/cats/dogs and is housebroken.

Senior Sunday – Lily’s Legacy Senior Dog Sanctuary

This weeks Senior Sunday post focus’ on Lily’s Legacy Senior Dog Sanctuary in Petaluma, CA.

Lily's Legacy

 

From Lily’s Legacy Senior Dog Sanctuary website

Lily’s Legacy is a volunteer run nonprofit organization based in Petaluma, CA. Our mission is to provide a safe and loving home for senior large breed dogs who have been displaced from their homes and/or abandoned for any reason, until they are adopted or to remain at the sanctuary until they pass on.

Lily’s Legacy Senior Dog Sanctuary is a 501(c)(3), all-volunteer, non-profit organization established in 2009 to provide a safe and loving home for senior large breed dogs who have been displaced from their homes and/or abandoned for any reason. Each dog coming into our sanctuary receives a thorough medical evaluation and treatment as nece​ssary, as well as temperament assessment. If the dog is adoptable, a home that will meet his or her emotional, medical and daily needs is sought. Dogs that are not adoptable, for whatever reason, remain at the sanctuary or in permanent foster home for the remainder of their natural lives. We provide hospice care as needed. Our dogs come from both shelters and owner surrenders.

Our mission is to ensure that each of our dogs will live out the rest of his/her life as a well-loved family companion; in a forever adoptive home, in a foster home or here at the sanctuary. Lily’s Legacy Senior Dog Sanctuary is one of the few rescues in California focusing on senior, large breed dogs, those most at risk in the shelters.

Lily's Legacy

 


Seniors have a lot to offer, we just need to be willing to watch, listen, and learn… (Divinity’s Dad, 2012)


Here are some, but not all of the senior dogs currently available for adoption from Lily’s Legacy Senior Dog Sanctuary.

 

Lady

Lady

​Beautiful, brilliant, loyal Lady is a 7-years young German Shepherd.

Lady was a heartworm positive stray rescued from a local shelter who had had a bit of a rough time before coming to Lily’s Legacy. We successfully treated her for heartworm and the Lady we know now has plenty of energy for walking, hiking and playing. When you just want to relax, she instantly switches to “cuddle mode.” She especially loves belly rubs!

Lady needs to learn how to make friends one dog at a time so she’ll do best as an only dog to start with a strong leader who is German Shepherd dog savvy (preferably one who works from home or is home a lot).

Lady has been going on field trips with her trainer, and is learning about the world. She has excellent manners in public. At pet stores, she’ll sniff the biscuits and toys…but not help herself. She’s very smart and a quick learner.

Lady is a very loving dog is hoping for her very own person to love her back!

To learn more about Lady, click the link to her Lily’s Legacy Senior Dog SanctuaryAdoption page

 

Chase

Chase

Cute Chase is a 9/10-year-old Lab/Aussie/Cattle dog mix who came to us from Yuba City. Chase passed his vet intake exam with flying colors and is a healthy boy. He’s doing well with the other dogs, both on and off leash (except that he doesn’t like to share his toys with them). Chase mostly is into some one on one time with a Lily’s volunteer who will take him out to explore and smell and do all those things dogs love to do. If there’s another dog walking with him, that’s just fine but his focus is on what smells he can pick up and so many other interesting things.

Chase walks well on a leash, knows the sit command and, to a lesser degree the come command. We love Chase’s bat ears that flap when he walks and his cute little cropped tail. Not sure what happened to it but it’s adorable.

To learn more about Chase, click the link to his Lily’s Legacy Senior Dog SanctuaryAdoption page

 

Hannah

Hannah

Hannah is a 12-year old, 60-pound German Shepherd/ Husky mix, who lost her home when her human had to move. It was very sad for both of them. This was the second home Hannah lost. In her first home she was a companion dog for a wheelchair bound person. Hannah ended up in a shelter when her person had to go into an elder care facility. Then she was adopted by her second family and then they couldn’t keep her.

Hannah’s settled in and happy at Lily’s but she’s really hoping that her forever person is out there. She’s housebroken, spayed and good with kids and cats. Hannah doesn’t hear as well as she used to and her arthritis slows her down sometimes, but she has a HUGE heart and will love you more than you can imagine. Hannah is the perfect companion for someone whose looking for a low key, mellow dog.

To learn more about Hannah, click the link to her Lily’s Legacy Senior Dog SanctuaryAdoption page

 

Jesse

Jesse

Jesse is a super nice and gentle Labrador Retriever (approximately 10-years old). A good Samaritan found him as a stray and took him to Lily’s.

Jesses loving all the attention he’s getting from Lily’s Angels volunteers and he loves chillin’ with his bunk mates in our barn but he’s ready for his new pack to come and take him home.

Jesse‘s good with other pups and he loves people. He’s healthy, housebroken and good on a leash. He does have a bit of arthritis on his hind legs and he’s hard of hearing. No big deal.

Bottom line, Jesse is just an easy going guy who will be your best friend and devoted companion. He basically needs a soft, warm bed and the love and attention of someone who is home a lot of the time.

To learn more about Jesse, click the link to his Lily’s Legacy Senior Dog SanctuaryAdoption page

 

Lucy
 Lucy

Lucy, an 11-year-old Labrador Retriever mix (cattle dog? Aussie?) is a very special pup who was surrendered by her elderly owner when he could no longer care for her. Lucy is super sweet, gets along well with the other senior pups at Lily’s (although she doesn’t like to share her toys with them) and has a happy spirit. Lucy has some back end weakness and can be a little wobbly but has been getting stronger since she’s been at our sanctuary. She is getting daily exercise and is building up those muscles. It’s amazing the difference this makes. A best home will be one that has a yard so she can go in and out on her own.

Lucy will be your devoted companion and just wants a warm bed, loving care and someone she can love back. Loving is one of the things she does really well. What a great face to wake up to every morning to and have by your side during your day.

To learn more about Lucy, click the link to her Lily’s Legacy Senior Dog SanctuaryAdoption page

 

Rex

Rex

Rex is a handsome, healthy 9-years young German Shepherd. Rex is an owner surrender but for all the right reasons. After a divorce, he lived with his owner’s sister for the past year. Rex has always been well cared for and loved. When she could no longer give him the time he deserved, she did the right thing and surrendered him to Lily’s.

Rex loves to play! Whether it’s fetch, tug o’war, or chasing water from the hose, this playful pup is a true delight. He also loves long walks. Rex gets along well with other dogs, is a trained Canine Good Citizen!

Rex loves the long walks he takes with his foster mom and is very smart. He’s gentle, mellow and loves being with people. Rex is the perfect Shepherd companion pup, and he will make a wonderful companion. Will it be you?

Please welcome Groot. He’s an eleven-year-old Cairn who loves everyone! Groot is a quiet and distinguished gentleman, who wants to cuddle up with his human on the couch and receive belly rubs. Groot prefers to be with his people and is very quiet; he hasn’t even barked while at his foster home.

Groot gets along with the resident dog and other dogs he meets in the park and store. He doesn’t even mind the resident cat. Groot is crate trained and house trained, and loves to chase toys – especially ones that squeak!

Groot

Groot has been in foster care for 173 days! Groot really, really wants his own Furever Home, and he just knows you are out there!

Senior Sunday – Shades Of Grey Sanctuary For Senior Dogs

This weeks Senior Sunday post focus’ on the Shades Of Grey Sanctuary For Senior Dogs in Plum, PA.

Shades Of Grey Sanctuary For Senior Dogs

 

From the Shade of Grey Sanctuary website

Shades Of Grey Sanctuary For Senior Dogs is an integral part of Southwest Pennsylvania Retriever Rescue Org. It is included in the SPARRO business plan and as such is a federally recognized 501c3 non profit.

Shades Of Grey Sanctuary For Senior Dogs was developed when we saw just how many senior dogs where in need of rescue with no hope of ever getting out of the shelters. Sadly, these beautiful and loyal dogs have been abandon through no fault of their own most times and people are often not willing to adopt a dog they may only get to love for a few years instead of a lifetime.

We have found that those few months or years are often the most happy and joyful times these dogs have ever known and they are especially wonderful for us. We live to see the smiles of the seniors each day who look at us and with their eyes say “THANK YOU” for giving us more quality time in a home where we are loved and treasured. SPARRO rescues and re-homes the young adoptable dogs that every family wants, but Shades Of Grey Sanctuary For Senior Dogs gives a future to the old dogs that most have forgotten about. In most cases, the seniors that come into Shades Of Grey Sanctuary For Senior Dogs are forever residents and are not available for adoption. WE are their family now and we don’t give up family members!

Note: Please share this post on your social media so that others can learn about these wonderful senior dogs. It’s the only way to spread the word about these seniors who need homes.


 

Here are some, but not all of the senior dogs currently available for adoption from the Shades Of Grey Sanctuary For Senior Dogs.

Kyra

Kyra

Kyra came to us in pretty rough shape. She had fur loss from being covered in fleas. Kyra was very thin, she was shy and she was also nursing a litter of puppies. In the months Kyra has been at SPARRO, she has really come out of her shell. Kyra is now a friendly and outgoing dog who loves people and other dogs.

Kyra has a beautiful soft coat of hair, and her puppies have been weaned and found great homes. Now it is time for Kyra to get a home of her own. Kyra is up to date with vaccinations, wormed, house trained, and crate trained.

Kyra is very active and does jump up on people, so small kids might not be the best for her. Kyra has a very strong interest in small animals, so a home without cats would be best.

Anubis

Anubis

Anubis came to us from a rural shelter where she turned up pregnant. Anubis had 7 beautiful pups and is now ready for adoption.

We are not exactly sure what she is, but Anubis seems to have features of a pit bull, but that is just a guess. Anubis is up to date with all vetting, but has not been spayed because of just finishing nursing her pups. Anubis loves people and snuggling and is GREAT with other dogs.
