Reasons to Adopt an Adult Dog

-Adult dogs are great at focusing on you because they’re calmer than youngsters. Plus, all those years of experience reading humans can help them quickly figure out how to do what you’re asking.

-Grownup dogs don’t require the constant monitoring puppies do, leaving you with more freedom to watch after young children, work from home, etc.

-Older dogs have already learned what it takes to get along with others and become part of a pack. They’ll be part of the family in no time!

-Your floors, shoes and furniture will thank you for adopting a senior pooch! 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.  Seniors also are much less likely to be destructive chewers.

-There are those who hold back adopting a dog because they worry what might happen in their lives in the years to come.  Providing a loving home for a dog in her golden years is not a less serious commitment, but it can be a shorter one.

-Older dogs do require exercise but they’re not going to need, or want, to run a marathon every day.

-Older dogs are often the last to be adopted.  Saving an animal’s life offers an unparalleled emotional return on your investment, and you’ll feel the rewards every day you spend together.
