Why Adopt a Senior Westies

rocky

 

Older Westies are not necessarily “problem dogs” as many tend to think.  Senior dogs lose their homes for a variety of reasons, usually having nothing to do with their behavior or temperament, but more due to the fact that their owners are unable to keep them for reasons including: the novelty of owning a dog wearing off, allergies, death of a guardian, a new baby, loss of a job, a move, change in work schedule, and various other lifestyle changes.  These dogs need homes just as badly as young adoptees do, and make wonderful household pets.
