A Male Chihuahua presently Adopted

Are you looking to do the ultimate in good deeds?  Then, consider adopting a senior dog.  I know that everyone is lined up for a bouncy, cute, puppy or young dog – they are jumping out at you from every rescue site.  Hard to resist, I know – little fluffballs with all their teeth!  But let me tell you, at 10 years old, I still have plenty of years to snuggle and offer you my loyal companionship.  Remember, wisdom comes with age and I am well aware of what it takes to be a family member.  I am a puppy at heart but without the puppy problems – no baby teeth to chew on your furniture (in fact, no teeth at all) and no yappy energy to wear you out.  I have 10 years experience in the fine art of being a human companion.  Sadly, I lost my home because of changes in my human’s life and now I’m looking at my second chance at living my senior years surrounded by a caring family.  At times, I am uneasy about being overly handled and react like a grump, so I ask that you take things slow and easy at first.  I won’t give up on you and I expect the same.  An adult home would best suit me as I have always lived with a senior – grabby hands and the youthful energy of young children might be too much for me.  I would really like to get back into doing daily exercise – walks around the neighbourhood would be so much fun to do together.  So, any new recruits out there who are willing to give me my second crack at happiness?  If you are looking for a dog with a heart as big as his ears, then I may be the guy for you.  Please fill in the Adoption Form and ask for Nico.

“Raising a dog is like a rainbow.  Puppies are the joy at one end.  Old dogs are the treasure at the other.”

Am I ready for a dog?

Adopting a dog is a life-changing event--or should be. A dog needs lots of time and attention and you've got to be there every day to give it. So, BEFORE filling out the Animatch adoption form, find out whether you're ready for a dog, or would be happier with a goldfish instead: Fill this great questionnaire now to find out if you are ready for a dog.
