When deciding to adopt a dog, remain open to the idea of adopting a senior dog, if the dog is relatively healthy and well trained.
Senior dogs are suited to a number of potential dog owners. Older canines might be ideal for families that want a mellow, less hyper dog. Someone who wants a dog who is already housebroken might consider an older pooch. And someone who doesn't want a long term commitment for pet ownership might consider a senior dog as well. You'll save an animal's life and gain a devoted companion ready to share your life.
