Senior and Special Needs Dogs

   What are "Senior" and "Special Needs" Dogs?

Senior Dogs:  Dogs over 9 years old are considered senior dogs, although a great number of them still have more energy than their owners. It all depends on the dog, some may have slowed down, even gotten a little grey in their beautiful coat or have some minor health issues requiring medication daily, however, they still have a lot of love and kisses to give a loving family. The big benefit to a "senior" dog is no training, good house manners and they already have life experience.

Special Needs: These dogs may require a special home, such as few or no stairs, no children and etc. Some of these may be shy or unsocialized dogs who have grown enough to move on to a dog-savvy and experienced forever home willing to help them continue to develop. It could also be a dog with a medical issue that needs to be controlled on a daily basis, which does not prevent the dog from living a normal active life.
