1. Roxy (Cefni German Shepherd Rescue, Yorkshire)
Roxy might look like a puppy, but she's actually a 10-year-old German Shepherd. She's in kennels and really misses her home comforts. She's got a friendly nature and she's super loving too. Could you be her new dog parent? More info here.
2. Cooper (Freshfields Animal Rescue, Liverpool)
Cooper is a gorgeous, slightly nervous 11-year-old labrador cross who has been stuck in kennels for years. He likes to go for walks, loves a fuss, and deserves to spend his twilight years in a loving home instead of a shelter. More info here.
3. Mac (Senior Staffy Club, Worcestershire)
Mac is a smiley, sweet 11-year-old Staffordshire Bull Terrier who ended up in kennels when his owner passed away. Like most staffies, he's great with kids, and likes kisses and cuddles. Can you offer him a forever home? More info here.
4. Evie (Safe Rescue, Norfolk)
Evie is a three-legged, 7-year-old whippet cross with a lot of love to give. She was rescued from a grim shelter in Romania, and she's since discovered soft blankets (and can't get enough of them) but she still needs to find a home. More info here.
5. Shiva (Wythall Animal Sanctuary, Birmingham)
6. Hoshi (Foal Farm, Kent)
This gorgeous floof is a 10-year-old Akita, and her name means "star" in Japanese. Hoshi has diabetes, and is mostly blind, so you'll have to visit her a few times so she can get to know you before you take her home. Find out more about her here.
7. Hester (All Dogs Matter, North London)
Hester is a clever, bright 7-year-old crossbreed, who was found abandoned and taken to the local pound, but no one came to claim her. She's been trained and knows all her basic commands. All she needs now is a home. More info here.
8. Barney (Yes Spaniel Rescue, South Yorkshire)
9. Gigi (Safe Rescue, Norfolk)
Gigi is a dapper fox terrier/corgi cross. He was rescued from terrible conditions in Romania, and he's only about 8, so there's plenty of life in this old dog yet. He loves other dogs, but he's looking for a child-free home. More info here.
10. Pippa and Milly (Dunroamin K9 Rescue, South Yorkshire)
11. Venus (Dogs Trust West Calder, Scotland)
Beautiful staffie Venus arrived at the Dogs Trust back in 2007, when she was heavily pregnant. She had 11 pups and they all found homes, but Venus is still waiting. She's now 12, can you offer her a way out of kennels? More info here.
12. Harold (Manchester Dogs Home)
Handsome Harold is an 11-year-old Jack Russell cross, with loads of energy (he loves to play fetch) and a really cheeky, fun personality. He just wants someone special (i.e. you) to take him home and let him curl up on their lap. More info here.
13. Reggie (The Oxfordshire Animal Sanctuary)
14. Max (Dogs Trust, Merseyside)
Glamorous Max is basically the George Clooney of the OAP dog world. He's an 8-year-old collie cross who loves cuddles, rolling in mud, and watching TV. If you adopt him, the Dogs Trust will cover his vet bills in future. More info here.
15. Groovy (Romford Greyhound Homing, Essex)
16. Minnie (RSPCA Radcliffe, Nottingham)
This beautiful, 7-year-old chocolate lab adores other dogs, and children over the age of five. She's active, fit, and lively, and doesn't act her age at all. She just wants lots of cuddles, and (like all dogs) someone to love. Is that you? If so, click here.
17. Rusty (Rain Rescue, South Yorkshire)
OAP staffie Rusty loves treats, people, and kisses, and just wants a sofa to spend her retirement snoozing on. Could you give her that? Oh go on, she's dressed in her best Christmas outfit: how can you resist? Click here to adopt this sweet pup.
A shelter dog needs peace and quiet to help them settle into a new home, so its best to wait until after Christmas and New Year to adopt any of these oldies. If you can't adopt a dog but want to support the work that Oldies Club do, you can sponsor an oldie as a Christmas gift, or make a donation to their vet fund.
