11. Older Dogs Don’t Necessarily Have Problems
Some people tend to think that older dogs have issues and that is why they are abandoned at the shelter. This is incorrect thinking because many senior dogs have no issues; they may have just been abandoned due to the age of the previous owners.
12. Every Dog is Unique
Young or old, every dog is unique. An older dog can show you its own special personality and loving nature provided you give it a second chance to love again.
13. Older Dogs Don’t Change in Size
The size of a senior dog will not change. What you see is what you will have to deal with. While a puppy or younger dog may continue to grow larger in size, adopting a senior dog allows you to see from the outset the maximum size it will reach.
