🌈 "We lost our 12 year old Boxer Reilly and our hearts are shattered. We had 4.5 wonderful years with him and for that I am so grateful. To anyone that has ever considered adopting a senior dog or thinks they never could- I encourage you to read what I wrote about Reilly below in hopes it may inspire you. It was the hardest, most rewarding thing we’ve ever done. I’ve never loved a dog like him and never will again in this lifetime. To the owners who dumped Reilly for being too old: You didn’t have to watch this. You didn’t have to stare at your dog’s tired, aching body and wonder if 'this is it.' You didn’t have to hold him through the countless fainting episodes and wonder if he’d come back to life. You didn’t have to watch your husband sob on the ground next to him. You didn’t have to budget for his medications, prescription food, and expenses to take him to countless appointments and specialists. You didn’t have to watch him age. Watch him slow down. Watch him lose his senses. Watch him lose interest in food. Watch him try and turn away all of his favorites- including brisket. You didn’t have to watch his mind change to the point where the dog you brought home 4 years ago was almost completely unrecognizable. You didn’t have to watch him and hold him in his final moments on this Earth. But here’s what you also didn’t watch... You didn’t watch him proudly walk down the aisle at our wedding as the 'best dog.' You didn’t watch how kind he was with every single human and animal he ever came across. You didn’t watch him save me- time and time again. You didn’t watch him run on the beach on both the east and west coast, climb the mountains of Arizona, see snow for the first time in Flagstaff, help his dad propose to his mom, walk the streets of Philadelphia, raise a kitten as his own, and welcome a younger puppy and teach him what love is. You took the easy way out and I am thankful you did. You didn’t have to watch this and we chose to. And despite the tears, the sadness, the fear of life without him...I would choose to watch it all again. Thank you Reilly for choosing us. So long, my sunshine. -Aryn" ❤️ #foreverloved

(near) CHICAGO, IL: 9 year old Blush has been at the shelter since 2012— she was just two years old back then! Although she's finally had some recent interest, a forever home has never panned out for her in seven long years. On top of that, Blush was recently diagnosed with diabetes. So many hurdles for this senior gal. SSD is sponsoring her insulin, and we're hoping the perfect adopter will be swayed by Blush's good looks, her charming personality and desperate story. Blush has always been eager to build a deep, lasting relationship with her own special person. And she's long overdue for her very special adoption day! PLEASE SHARE! ⛱ @orphansofthestormanimal shelter wrote, "Blush was picked up as a stray by local animal control on July 11, 2012. Blush is one of the smartest and most fun girls at the shelter. She loves to play fetch and enjoys burying her favorite toys for safekeeping. She is a great walking buddy, but don't let her silly waddle fool you, this little one can run! Blush was losing her vision until a volunteer friend noticed and got her the eye surgery she needed. Now she can spot a squirrel 1000 yards away! Blush does like to be in charge, and she also has a strong pray drive, so she will do best as the only dog at home. If you are looking for a fun-loving, intelligent and independent friend, take Blush out for a test drive! An adopter must be present at the shelter to adopt, we do not arrange transports." To adopt Blush, please email info@orphansofthestorm.org with any questions or to apply! @orphansofthestorm animal shelter is located at 2200 Riverwoods Road, #Riverwoods, #IL. ❤️ #seniordog #illinois #adoptme #animalshelter #adoptdontshop

(near) MIAMI, FL: Oh where, oh where is Ears' perfect adopter?! He's 10 years old, he's lived 10 years in the shelter and this is his 6th post on SSD. (Read that again if your jaw hasn't dropped!) Ears is incredibly loyal his special someone and is very people friendly. He's just an old goof! Sadly, the right applicants are nowhere to be found. It's been a very heartbreaking journey for everyone who has been trying to get him out of the shelter. And Ears deserves so much better for his retirement years. PLEASE SHARE!! 🎾 @bornfreepetshelterwrote, "We are still looking for a home for Ears. He is very loving towards people and would make an incredibly loyal companion. We don't think he has ever been in a home and he is already 10 years old. Nothing brings out Ears' fun-loving personality more than when he plays fetch. He absolutely loves it, will actually return the ball and seemingly can go on playing forever! He also loves water. He is very sweet and affectionate. Ears is eager to have a home that will give him all the love and attention he craves and deserves. While we recommend Ears as the only pet in the house, we have recently tested Ears with a cat. He was aware of the cat and didn't seem very interested for the most part but he did growl and bark a few times. He will need a very slow introduction to cats, that might take weeks for him to see a cat as part of the family. We also want to encourage local families who have very friendly dogs, especially females, to come to the shelter for a meet and greet if they are interested in Ears. Ears was recently taken to the vet he is a healthy doggie! His damaged ear is from many years ago when a dog bit his ear through the fence. Born Free Pet Shelter is a small shelter so transport is not available - adopters will need to drive to the shelter to adopt Ears in person." To adopt Ears, please email bornfreepetshelter@gmail.com with questions or to set up a meet-and-greet. @bornfreepetshelter is located in Homestead, #FL. ❤️ #seniordog #florida #animalshelter #adoptme #adoptdontshop

HOUSTON, TX: Meet Faline! She is a royal princess who is looking for her perfect castle. She does, of course, enjoy the finer things in life, but Faline is a lovely princess who is nice to everyone and gets along with all. Faline is not picky as to where her future castle is located, but she expects only the most loving of families so be sure you're ready to take on her princess needs. And in return, Faline is ready to make her humans feel like absolute royalty! PLEASE SHARE! 🏰 @joyrides_rescuewrote, "Faline is about 8 years old, 12lbs and is soooo sweet! She was turned into the pound when her owner passed away and we pulled her from there. She has had so little adoption interest in her and we have no idea why - she's adorable! A perfect day for Princess Faline would be to wake up from her slumber in her loyal subjects' bed atop their pillow. Her subjects will carry her down for a potty break, and then serve her breakfast. After breakfast, she will lounge with her subjects on the couch or rally any fur siblings for a game of chase. Naps are a common occurrence with Princess Faline. Her life is centered around being carried, naps, mealtimes and walks around the block (er, castle?). Princess Faline loves and gets along with all of her loyal subjects, which include humans, dogs and cats. If you are looking to spoil a princess, Princess Faline is the right one for you. She will let you spoil her with kisses, hugs, naps, delicious yummy treats and, most importantly, love! Local and non-local adopters are OK, we transport to all 50 states. Faline is heartworm negative, had a recent dental cleaning/extractions and has no known health problems!" To adopt Faline, please email info@joyrides.org with any questions or to apply!

🌈 "I just wanted to share that we lost our sweet Mabel yesterday afternoon to an aggressive cancer. We only had her for a short time. But the memories we made will last a lifetime. When I saw her post in 2017 her name was Nimh. She was a wonderful addition to our family. And we will miss her terribly. Some day the memories of her last days will fade. And we'll think about her as she was in her happy times. The way she loved to soak up the sun. Rolling on her back. Rubbing her face in the grass. Or always walking two steps behind Max, our other beagle, with noses to the ground. They were the odd couple — completely different but always looking out for one another. We spent our last time with Mabel outside in her happy place. Max keeping guard. Scaring off all the garbage and FedEx trucks going by, lol. Mabel was happy. So as we grieve we share memories of that sweet, sometimes hood rat, momma's girl. It's comforting that somewhere over that rainbow bridge is a pretty girl. Soaking up the sun. Rolling around the grass. Still living the best life. And throwing out that mean side eye to anyone who she thinks deserves it! -Jennifer" ❤️ #seniordog #rainbowbridge #foreverloved #adoptdontshop

**EDIT: ADOPTED!!** BROOKLYN, NY: Shucks. 8 year old Van Halen still hasn't received any interest in her two month long shelter stay. This gal is both tough and sweet! She's a tough because she hasn't gotten sick once yet, an accomplishment at a busy shelter with lots of dogs swapping germs. But we don't want to press her luck for too much longer. Van Halen needs out of the shelter. She's very smart and knows commands, it's clear she was once somebody's companion. But she was found a stray and came in to the shelter quite thin so it's likely she hasn't had a stable home in awhile. Van Halen hopes an adopter will give her a chance very soon. PLEASE SHARE!! 🍎 A shelter volunteer wrote, "Beautiful, friendly Van Halen with the big soulful eyes always greets you with a big grin. It's obvious that someone taught this fine lady some important skills! Playful and friendly to humans of all ages, including small children, she comes when you call her, glad to have any attention you can spare! She knows sit, shake paw, and lay down, and will do anything to please you - or maybe get a treat! She loves to be petted and play fetch and play with toys; she would be a perfect dog for a family with kids who can give her lots of love. She keeps to herself around other dogs, preferring the company of humans, so it might be best that she be the only dog in her forever home for now." Van Halen has cautiously participated in doggy social settings at the shelter. It is a supervised introduction done outdoors. She does not make trouble with other dogs, but she is uncomfortable when new dogs sniff her hind or face area or get too close for her comfort. The behavior staff feels she could possibly live with another dog, however, SLOW introductions would be a must. Van Halen cannot live with cats. Van Halen MUST be adopted in person at the #brooklynshelter. No transport. To adopt Van Halen, please email adoption@nycacc.org with animal ID # 58568.

(semi-near) DES MOINES, IA: Meet Mae! She's a teeny sweetie up for adoption in rural Iowa. And she's taking to social media to get her story out there! Mae's rescue pulled her from a southern state to help redistribute the overcrowded shelter system problem. They've done a great job getting many dogs adopted in their area, but seniors are always harder to place. Mae is big ol' snuggle bunny (in a tiny body) and hopes her local-ish adopter will see her story soon! PLEASE SHARE! 🌸 @emmetcountyanimalshelter wrote, "Mae was in a high kill shelter and her future was grim, but just looking at that tiny sweet face with those big eyes we knew we had to give this senior girl a chance! Mae is an itty-bitty Chihuahua around 10 years old and weighs under 10 pounds. We are in a very rural area with — about 1.5 hours to any town of size and 3 hours to either Des Moines, IA or Minneapolis, MN. Mae is a snuggle bug and would love nothing more than a human who has the desire to sit, relax and cuddle up with her tucked in beside you. She is fine with other dogs of similar activity level. But we recommend no cats at home. And we are asking no small children in the home given Mae's size. Mae does have a low grade heart murmur and is on two medications to help her with that condition. She won't likely be up for any long walks or strenuous games of fetch in the back yard. Mae is up to date on vaccinations, spayed and micro-chipped her adoption fee is $100.00. The shelter requires an application filled out in our website. All pets in home must be spayed/neutered and current on vaccinations. We check references and talk to vets. Our group typically does not transport. However, we could work with someone within a reasonable distance." To adopt May, please email emmetcountyanimalshelter@live.com with any questions.

"I adopted my mama two days after Valentine's Day this year. I'd wanted a rescue greyhound for a while but had never been in a position to go ahead with it due to real estate restrictions. In preparation for that day, application forms had already been submitted and I was in all the greyhound owner Facebook groups I could find to make sure I was well read and prepared. 😂 I live alone in an apartment and work full time, but knew I could give the right dog everything they needed (and more!). When I finally gave @gap_qldthe green light that I was good to go, I had an army of people cheering for me because they knew how much it meant. Not long after, GAP emailed me with a potential match. Jedda (aka my sweet darling angel babe) had been raced and then used for breeding, after which she was 'dropped off' at a nearby university for their vet program. The uni referred Jedda onto @gap_qld and she flew through their assessments (because she is perfect, obviously). Jedda is 10, has an eye condition called pannus, a small heart murmur, and an arthritic left wrist I can only assume is an old racing break. I won't lie, her age made me nervous....how long will we have together? Will it all be worthwhile after the inevitable goodbye, whenever that may be? I thought about it and realised that I could die before her. I could die next week. We all could. Morbid; yes, true; also yes. So what's the point in worrying about that? I had a chance to give the most deserving of dogs the best golden years of all time and after being a devoted SSD follower for years I knew it was fate. I took the plunge and she has taken to life with me so easily! She loves EVERYONE! I love the way she snaps her teeth in the air when she's excited or how she rubs her face on my leg in happiness after a stranger makes friends with her. How she 'chitters' her teeth when she feels nothing but bliss, how she takes her eyedrops like a champ, how everything she does is just heaven on earth. Jedda is the best company ever & I've felt so much calmer since her arrival. It has been the best decision of my life & I'm so lucky to have my sweet girl. -Tehya" @returnofthejedda❤️ #mamadogseries

Sara is home!! With four less teeth!! 😬😍 Sara had dental surgery today and they took out four teeth that were starting to rot. A huge thanks for the @westchelseavet staff for always taking such great care of our pups and making us feel like rockstars. 🤩 (And, obvi, we always pay full price for our personal dogs’ vet care — there is no incentive giving them our heartfelt thanks!) 🐶 #seniordog #dentalsurgery #adoptdontshop

NORWALK, CT: 8 year old Ziggy's frustrating shelter journey continues. This is his 7th feature on SSD - he's quickly climbing to the top of our list of dogs who've been featured the most. Not a good thing when you really want to be adopted. Ziggy's shelter has worked tirelessly to get his story out there. Not to mention the emotional and financial resources they've poured into this well-deserving boy with hopes that someone will finally connect with him. Ziggy is a fantastic people-dog, but he cannot live other animals. We understand that's a deal breaker for some, but Ziggy is a great dog who still matches up with plenty of adopters out there. If only we could find that special someone. PLEASE SHARE! 🦋 @petsanimalwelfaresociety wrote, "Ziggy is very sweet but stressed in the shelter. When people do respond to Ziggy's posts, they don’t typically understand the animal issues. They will ask things like, 'is he okay to reside temporarily with their parent’s dogs when they come visit?' (He cannot.) We're trying not to get discouraged. His person must be out there somewhere! Ziggy recently went to Board and Train for about a month, and we are able to provide pre and post adoption training support. He really is a great people dog and was recently at a radio station where he, of course, did really well. He can self entertain with his chew toys. He’s really gentle, especially when you give him treats, it’s like he knows he could hurt you so he doesn’t grab. He is also intelligent, inquisitive and attentive. Ziggy likes to be close to his people and his perfect family will be up for both quality fun and cuddle time. He’s also the perfect party guest because he doesn’t jump and he likes kids. Ziggy needs to be in a home with no other animals. Ziggy is eligible for PAWS' Senior Pension Plan which means no adoption fee, annual vaccinations, wellness exams and senior profile bloodwork free of charge at PAWS. He’s currently on amitriptyline to help with behavior modification. He just really needs a place to live out his life with some dignity." To adopt Ziggy, please email dogs@pawsct.org to apply! PAWS is located at 504 Main Avenue, #Norwalk, #CT. ❤️ #seniordog

😬 SMILE!! Our girl Sara is having her first dental tomorrow! (Digging around in her mouth to show you was pretty pointless. 🤣) Dentals and senior dogs pretty much go hand-in-hand. We adopted our senior Sara almost two years ago and very regularly take her to the vet. And, until now, she has not needed dental work. However, in recent times we've noticed some increasingly bad breath, which was an immediate red flag that now might be Sara's time to finally need that dental. 🙊 Sure enough, a trip to the vet last week confirmed that miss Sara has some new build up on her teeth causing the odor. (And possible tooth extractions, which won't be known until she is in surgery.) A dental requires sedation, and her bloodwork came back perfect so she is healthy enough to undergo anesthesia. 💪🏽 If possible, it's much better to opt to do dental surgery for your dog at the first sign that they need it rather than waiting until they are much older and anesthesia is riskier. Of course, surgery and anesthesia can be risky at ANY age, but the risks only go up as they age. Oral hygiene is super important to our dogs’ overall health, and one of the best perks is it clears up their bad breath! 🙌🏽 We'll keep you posted on how miss Sara does tomorrow. We know our girl is going to do great!! 👊🏼 #seniordog #oralhygiene #dentalsurgery
