In addition, senior dogs often bond quickly with their new owners and make loyal, loving companions. Plus, adopting a senior dog can be a lifesaving decision; according to the ASPCA, senior dogs are often the last to be adopted from shelters and are at risk of being euthanized.

If you’re interested in adopting a senior dog, there are a few things to keep in mind. First, be realistic about your lifestyle and whether or not you’re able to care for an older pet. Senior dogs typically require more medical attention than younger dogs, so be prepared to budget for vet bills. In addition, consider whether you have the time and energy to devote to a senior dog. They may need more exercise than young dogs, but they also may not have the stamina for long walks or runs.
