I got Daisy from a high kill shelter and it was the best thing I could have done. I not only saved a life but received a wonderful new family member. Daisy is wonderful, and so loving. The staff at the shelter work hard to save as many dogs and cats as they can and use the social networks to help with adoptions. That's how I found Daisy was one of the staff posted her pic on Facebook and asked would someone help her. They were doing everything they could to get her adopted before they put her to sleep. She was being overlooked mainly because she was a senior and also because she was heartworm positive. Not many people want a senior heartworm positive dog. Glad I did though. She's now heartworm negative and such a joy. I hope she has many happy years with us. My next adoption will be through this shelter.

Thanks for your post. I was in a high kill shelter and was being overlooked because of my age. I was fortunate that my new Mama wanted me. She tells everyone when she gets a chance how awesome senior dogs are.

I adopted Daisy a few months ago. Daisy is a Senior and was at a local high kill shelter. In addition to being a senior, she was heart worm positive which was pretty much going to be a death sentence for her. One of the staff posted her pic on Facebook asking if anyone would adopt her. It was most likely that no one was going to adopt a senior heart worm positive dog and although I wasn't planning to adopt another dog at the time something about her picture made me want her. She received heart worm treatments and is now heart worm negative. She has severe arthritis but is receiving treatments for that. She is doing great and I am so glad I got her. She is such a pleasure. After this experience with her, I will continue to adopt senior dogs in the future. She was already housebroken, is not destructive, doesn't require a lot of exercise and is calm. She enjoys running in the backyard but also enjoys laying on the sofa and watching tv with me. Many positives in adopting a senior.
