8. Older Dogs Have Learned Lessons

An older dog is more likely to have learned many lessons over their lifetime, such as not to chew on furniture or pee inside the house. They will notice human emotions and actions more than puppies and younger dogs who are not mature enough to understand that “no” is a warning to be obedient to your commands, for example.

9. Older Dogs Are Just as Cute as a Puppy

A puppy is cute- but so are senior dogs! They look just as cute and behave in a very cute manner too. You can take the same amount of cute pictures or videos of a senior dog as you can with a puppy. You will adore a senior dog just as much as a puppy, and maybe even more, if you only let them leave some pawprints across your heart.

10. Older Dogs are Loyal and Devoted

When senior dogs realize that they have a new family, they will likely give their owners 100% loyalty and devotion for being willing to take a chance on them. Seniors dogs will be forever grateful for your act of kindness.
