Senior dogs have that little extra something that sets them apart. These photos illustrate it perfectly.
The older dogs get, the more wisdom and affection they gain. Looking at them, you can’t resist the urge to shower them with hugs.
Our senior dogs have a lot to offer. They also need to feel loved and supported more than ever. Many are waiting for their luck in shelters, and it would be a shame to deprive themselves of such a precious presence.
