SENIOR SUNDAY! @susiesseniordogs thinks five years is five too many. Jake and Jill went up the hill...looking for their forever home! These two cuties are a bonded brother and sister pair who have been at the shelter for the last 5 years. Yes, you read that right: FIVE years at the shelter. They are both friendly with other dogs and gentle with children. They both love human attention, head scratches and belly rubs! The only reason they haven't been adopted in so long is due to so many dogs needing homes. Jake and Jill are inseparable and looking for their one special-someone who understands the connection that some animals have with each other and will adopt them both together.

And they were returned them to our shelter. Jake and Jill have been in the shelter another 5 years. They are now 10 years old. Jake is 39 pounds and Jill is 49 pounds. They are not very big, just chubby.
Jake and Jill haven't received any interest at all. It's very sad to hear, they are so sweet and loving. It's really hard for us to find people who want to adopt older dogs. They are both are even-tempered, friendly, laid back and sweet dogs. Jill is the outgoing one of the two, Jake is more calm but also very sweet. They are both very good with other dogs and kids. These two are such a great pair. They are super well mannered and well behaved that you will be happy to have them around. They are brother/sister and it would be great if they were adopted together.
Jill needs to lose a lot of weight and once she does she will be able to walk better. Other than that, Jake and Jill are both healthy." To adopt Jake and Jill, please email firstname.lastname@example.org to apply!
