The Advantages of Adopting an older dog

Saturday, January 12, 2013
posted by Jim Murphy

Most of the time, when we’re in a pet store or shelter, your eyes are on those cute, little puppies staring at you but there are advantages in adopting an older dog.

  • Older dogs are easier to train, because  their experience with humans enables them to quickly  understand your expectations.
  • They don’t require that constant monitoring that puppies do. This enables you to do the things that you want t0 do.
  • They can make wonderful companions for senior citizens as they are usually housebroken and very used to the love and affection from humans.
  • There are fewer messes with an older dog  Older dogs are likely to already be housetrained—and even if they’re not, they have the physical and mental abilities to pick it up really fast (unlike puppies). With their teething years far behind them, seniors also are much less likely to be destructive chewers.
  • In shelters, older dogs are usually the last to be adopted and the first to be euthanized. It’s a shame that these wonderful dogs aren’t given the chance that they deserve. Saving an older dog’s life  offers an unparalleled emotional return on your investment, and you’ll feel the rewards every day you spend together.
