SENIOR SUNDAY! @susiesseniordogs presents Max! 11 year old Max is located in Cincinnati, Ohio and he has been looking for his forever home for one year already! If you're wondering how it can be that nobody has scooped this boy up yet...it's simply because of his age. Max is SUPER sweet and gets along with other dogs and cats. He has such a loving, gentle and tolerant personality and it make it all the more frustrating that he's been passed over time and time again.
Max was originally advertised as 'Free to a Good Home' on Craigslist. He was in horrible condition due to neglect. Thankfully, @recycleddoggies rescue in Ohio came to Max's aid and helped this sweet boy regain his strength, his health, and his beauty! But that was last year...and Max is still waiting for an adopter. Max has glaucoma in both eyes and he is blind (this requires medicated drops 2-3 times a day for the rest of his life). This handsome fella was never taught housetraining skills and will need some patience with that. But Max is so super sweet and he is worth every ounce of your effort and love!
If you are interested in adopting Max from @RecycledDoggies, please complete an adoption application through their website. The adoption radius for Max is within a 2 hour drive of Cincinnati, which extends to Columbus, OH, Louisville and Lexington, KY, and Indianapolis, IN.

SENIOR SUNDAY! @susiesseniordogs wants to know: love naps? Then Yolanda is the perfect adoption match for you! Yolanda can sleep at least 21 hours a day - it's exhausting being that adorable!
Yolanda is 11 years old and is the perfect companion for someone who is looking for canine company but doesn't have time for training or housebreaking or excessive exercise. Yolanda is just about the easiest, move-in ready gal you can find. Her main activity is snoozing and she is content to sleep the day away while you're at work. But she is also very smart and motivated and will happily show off new tricks she learns to your friends. She's the perfect combo!
Despite being so easygoing and low maintenance, Yolanda has been looking for an adopter for almost a whole year. Sadly, it's only due to her age that people pass her over. But they are missing out! Senior pets like Yolanda have so much love to give, she just needs to be given a chance. She loves food, snuggling, playing with toys...and, as we mentioned, napping of course! She is very well behaved in the home and doesn't even get on furniture without being granted permission. Yolanda only requests lots of snuggles and cuddles, that's what makes her most happy.
Yolanda is located in Rochester, NY with Brindle Posse Rescue. An adoption application is required. As long as an adopter drives to meet her, Yolanda can be adopted anywhere!
Please email Yolanda's foster at email@example.com for more information on adopting.

SENIOR SUNDAY! @susiesseniordogs reminds: When and considering bringing home a new furry family member, the most crucial thing you can do is remain open minded about the "type" of dog you are looking for. Just like human compatibility, the best of relationships are so much more than skin deep. Every dog has their own individual personality and deserves to be given a chance. By only preferring a specific breed limits the heart's possibility of finding an extraordinary love match. Rebecca and her senior dog Tasha have an incredible relationship that might never have existed had she not given her a chance. Rebecca shares, "Tasha is my first senior dog I adopted. I went to the shelter to get a small senior, as my late dog I had for 14 years was a small dog, too. But when one of the staff at the shelter asked if a bigger dog would be okay, I was open for it. And so she showed me Tasha, an 11 year old dog who never had a loving family.
The first 3 years of Tasha's life she was mistreated by humans. Then she came to the shelter and was there for 8 long years without anyone interested in her. She was so scared of everyone and everything, I think her biggest wish was to be invisible. I remember when the shelter worker put the leash on Tasha, she was scared and tried to make herself smaller. So I took a walk with her and even though I was still unsure if a bigger dog was right for me, I knew I had to take her home.
The next day I took Tasha home with me. The first weeks were a little challenging. She only walked around the house with careful and silent steps and she didn't want to draw any attention to herself. But as time went on, she became more and more confident. She eventually realized that we won't harm her and she developed a deep bond with me. Really, whoever says senior dogs can't bond is just wrong!
Tasha has become a confident, funny and happy dog. She loves walks, is happy about every dog we meet and just loves to play and cuddle with me. Looking back at how she was a year ago when I adopted her to now, her transformation is like two completely different dogs. I love her with all my heart and she has strengthened my dedication to adopt senior dogs."
