Nasa might have been hard to place. She's eight years old and she sheds -- a lot, as do most Australian Shepherds and their mixes. But only a couple weeks after joining us, Nasa found a home. Someone came in to an adoption event specifically looking for an old dog. This lady found Nasa, and what a lucky find indeed. Nasa is sweet-natured, housebroken, and an easy dog to have around the house.
And it wasn't just Nasa. Last weekend, we also found a home for Taz, a 12 year old Shetland Sheepdog who came to us from owners who were 88 and 90 years old and no longer able to care for him. Taz's new owner saw his picture, and something in the picture spoke to her. She decided this might be fate. Here's Taz. Taz's new owner has decided to stay in touch with Taz's former owners, who are anxious to hear how he's doing.
And there's more. I also have a senor boy named Arnold (named for Arnold Animal Control from which he came). Arnold is going home with another person who came specifically looking for a senior dog. Arnold has the grey muzzle, old eyes and weak ears to prove his maturity, and he's a calm, easy walker. Here's Arnold.
