We are celebrating Second Chances this month by highlighting some of our more mature dogs!
Older dogs make great companions. They’ve already grown into themselves, and have established personalities, so you know what you’re getting. They’ve typically been "socialized" and understand what it takes to be part of your family. They have calmer temperaments, are better able to focus during training, and are eager to learn and please you. Senior dogs are also more worldly - many have already experienced car rides and know how to walk on a leash, so they’re instant companions ready to take on new activities with you. They are also very grateful for the second chance they’ve been given and will really appreciate a loving and caring home. Experience with pugs or like breed required.
Adopting a senior dog is your opportunity to be a Hero. At the shelters, older dogs are often the last to be adopted and the first to be euthanized. Saving an animal’s life offers an unlimited emotional return on your investment, and you’ll reap the rewards every day you spend together.

You can save animals like this one by becoming a foster home for a dog in need! Fosters are like way stations between high kill shelters and forever homes. We need fosters so that we can save dogs before they are euthanized at the shelters. If you are interested in becoming a foster, please check out our information about fostering on our website: http://www.muttsmatterrescue.com/foster_faq.html
