Why Adopt an Older Dog?

We’re usually housetrained! You won’t have to go through all of that “puppy stuff” that includes messy newspapers and puddles on the floor!

We are through with the “teething phase” that is so hard on expensive shoes, couches and small children!

We can focus well on obedience because we’re at that mellow stage in life!

We know what “no” means. If we hadn’t learned it by now, we probably wouldn’t have made it this far!

Older dogs settle in more easily than puppies. We don’t do all of that whining and squeaking in the middle of the night!

We’re instant companions! We are ready for hiking, car rides and trips when you are! We know how to pack light!

We know. We’re grateful for this second chance we’ve been given and we’ll show you with lots of love and affection.

You know what you’re getting. You never know what a puppy will look like. We’re already grown up so what you see is what you get!

We give you time to yourself. We won’t make the same kind of demands on your time that the youngsters will.

We actually let you get a good night’s sleep! We’re used to human schedules and generally don’t need nighttime attention!
