Adoptable Dogs

According to a Dogtime survey, the absolute most challenging pets to adopt out are older dogs.


​Maybe you are reluctant to adopt a senior dog because you fear that your time with your new best friend will be short, bringing that painful time of loss closer. But the privilege of loving a senior dog makes every single day special as you and your companion share love, friendship, and a special relationship that grows stronger with the knowledge that you have given this fine old dog a second chance at life. The love that grows from this knowledge is stronger than the pain of eventual separation.​


What does that mean?

From now on, we will no longer give our dogs an estimated age but instead an age category.  Aging a dog, based on looking at them, is unreliable and usually inaccurate. We get to know each dog individually and will do our best to describe each dog based on personality and their needs.

Please note: In the RARE case that we get whelping papers or a dog where we do have an actual birthdate through documentation, we will provide that to our adopters. However, that is a very rare occurrence in rescue.


  • Puppy - Under six months

  • Young Adult - 6 months to 2 years

  • Adult - 2 years to 8 years

  • Senior - 8 years to 12 years
