Above: Daydream, senior pet available for adoption through PAWS Atlanta.
Older pets have plenty of love to share, often without the training that younger animals require. Here are some examples of senior dogs and cats available for adoption.
Daydream is a female Shepherd mix who weighs 63 pounds. At 9, she’s been waiting for a home so long she’s been assigned to the “penthouse,” a little air-conditioned, heated cottage with its own play yard. Inside, Daydream has three dog beds to choose from and a little area rug she keeps tidy. She loves to go for walks on our trail. She loves tennis balls and toys and Milk-Bone treats. She loves baby pools and would prefer to spend her entire summer crouched down in one, for maximum water coverage. Daydream is a part of PAWS Secret Crush Club, which means her adoption fee has been covered by one of her many fans! To meet Daydream, email email@example.com.
Nog is a calm and loving regal lady who is 8 years old and gets along well with everyone, including cats, dogs and kids! Don’t tell Nog that you can’t teach an old dog new tricks. She has recently learned the commands: sit, stay, down, up and paw! Her foster parents report that she is a wonderful dog with a soft and quiet demeanor who is also super affectionate, sweet, kind and fun. For more information about Nog, email firstname.lastname@example.org.
Mrs. Pearlie is an affectionate senior lady who weighs 6 pounds. Sweet and friendly, she will chat up a storm when she meets someone new. In return for her conversation, she’ll expect to be pet and told how pretty she is. Mrs. Pearlie will soak up all the love that you can dish out, and she’ll give plenty back. She is hoping you speak her love language and will want to adopt her. To meet Mrs. Pearlie, email email@example.com.
Buster is a delightful 10-year-old gentleman who has wonderful manners and is a great snuggler. He is already housebroken and crate trained, and he gets along well with other dogs. Buster loves people and is gentle with children. His idea of a good time includes cuddling with his human and watching TV all afternoon, although he also loves short walks and is good on a leash too. He’s up for whatever you are and is just happy to be with you! Buster is partially deaf, but it doesn’t seem to bother him. His former foster parents say he is sweet, snuggly, soft, mellow and goofy. If you’re interested in meeting Buster, email firstname.lastname@example.org.
Exotic is a super affectionate and very low-maintenance 10-year old gal. She is good on a leash and will happily take a one- or two-mile walk with you, and then come home and nap. She loves to sleep and lay in the sun — and run around the yard a few times between naps. She gets along well with her foster siblings, is easy to bathe and brush and loves to cuddle and have her head rubbed. Exotic is also housebroken, crate trained, and knows the sit and stay commands.
