These successful adoptions make a pretty grand case for senior dog adoption. Here are a few who are still awaiting their forever homes:
7. Crystal of Houston, Texas.
This champ has been in and out of a few homes due to family changes. According to her Facebook post, “She is wonderful, loving, loyal, smart and funny. She wants a home where she will be the recipient of all the love and attention. After all she has been through, she deserves it.”
9. Hearthrob of Manhattan.
Hearthrob is just that: a heart throb! According to Kristin at Animal Haven, she “is a very, very sweet girl! She is friendly and kissy with everyone! Her tail wags even at strangers. She will make a best friend to families with or without children. She is very easy going and just loves to be snuggled.” Her back legs are a little weak but she still loves limited walks!
12. Mavis of Scottsdale, Arizona.
Mavis is a 9-year-old cancer survivor with a heart of gold ready to be part of her forever home! She is currently living at the pound within PetSmart located at 4380 North Miller Road, Scottsdale, AZ. You can call and ask about Mavis at 480.429.4519.
14. Eskie of New York City.
Eskie’s rescue volunteer Samantha said that “she is very low key, loves affection, very quiet — never barks. She has some trouble getting around, but she’s got a few follow up vet appointments that may help with that. She has some health issues that need to be addressed, but the vet says she’s not in bad shape for her age — they think she’s around 13. She is great with other animals but needs to be in a home where she can relax, not with other animals that will want to play rough. She’s housebroken as long as she gets outside often enough but can’t really do stairs.”

16. Bruno of Ottawa, Canada.
This is what Bruno had to say for himself “I am a really good boy, I have great house manners and other than going for walks or playtime I really prefer to be inside. I am a silly, goofy boy that loves belly rubs and attention, I have a toy alligator and he is my best friend. I would really like a home where I can be your only baby, I don’t like other dogs. I have never been around small children and don’t really like the commotion that comes with them. The ladies that look after me say that sometimes when I really don’t want to do something I can be stubborn, so someone that has experience handling a big dog like me would be ideal. Don’t you think I would look great sitting on your couch??!!”
