Rescuing an Older Dog
Rescue is not just getting a dog, it's opening your
heart and home to a new companion and giving
them some things that they may not have had until
you adopted them. You will be providing them with
food, shelter, health care, but most importantly love.
Of course we all would like to have our companions
around for a long time, but we know that's not possible.
Only God knows how long they will be with us, and he
does not usually share that information with us humans.
It may be for a very short or very long time, but rather than
look at it from a selfish standpoint and wonder how long
they will be with us, why not look at it a little differently.
How much can you love and enjoy your companion for
the rest of the time they are with us, be it short or long.
A four year old can still be with us for ten or more years,
that's a lot of time and a lot of love you can give.
An eight year old is about halfway through their life,
with you the second half can be better,
more love and caring than they've seen before.
The older rescues have just as much to give, and
deserve just as much as we can give as the young pup.
