For many dogs like Jake, the outcome is not so happy. Senior dogs are considered the most difficult to rehome thus being the most likely to get euthanized to make room for other animals in need. Many senior dogs are dropped off at shelters because of the expense due to health problems the pet may have developed. This is also the reason they are often passed up at shelters. Thankfully, programs like the Mr. Mo Project are helping place senior dogs in loving foster homes where they can live out their remaining years.
Like Melani, if you are looking for a great dog, a loyal companion, and to save a life … consider adopting or fostering a gray muzzled furry friend.
