whats the oldest anyones adopted? there's this adorable six year old i kind of want.
Lucky was 4 when I adopted her. One woman that used to come into the old vet i worked at adopted her golden at 9 and 6 years later he's still going strong. I"d say go for it so many older dogs get looked over because of their age and a lot of times they make the best pets especially if you want a quiet one.
there are so many advantages to adopting older pets. they are probably potty trained, they are calmer, and have out-grown some of the hardest puppy stages. i think they is something to sweet and cuddly about an older dog. they are usually much more laid back.
we adopted a 2 year old, and she's so much different from a puppy. it's night and day!
We adopted Ella when she was 4 and 1/2. She's very calm. I don't regret it at all!!!
DH a while ago adopted a 9 yr old Chihuahua/Mini Pin mix
Our new pup is a 3 1/2 yr old mini pin
very cool to hear. i'd love an older dog set in his ways. so i can get to know him!
I got my first dog when I was 6 and she was 6 too :)
