Just a note about adopting a senior dog or senior pairs... I adopted Pingo, 8 years old and cannot say enough about how wonderful adopting a senior dog is. Please consider adopting a senior dog; they are your forever friends, loving companions and grateful to have a wonderful home.
Needless to say, they are housebroken, quiet and above all very few, if any bad habits. Adopt a senior dog -- its very gratifying to know you can give love and attention to an older dog and allow him to live out his life in a wonderful world!
