Ramblings From The Ranch

Hey, how about adopting a puppy? Itll jump all over you, bite you incessantly, pee on your carpet and then chew up your shoes and couch. Oh, and if youre a person of a certain age,” the puppy might outlive you, too.

If you yearn for canine companionship but get a headache when you think about puppies, maybe a senior dog is the perfect solution for you? At any given time, The Ranch has several gray-snouted sweethearts who would love to join your family.

Advantages of senior dogs are many:

They dont need a lot of exercise. A trip around the block is probably enough.

They are usually house-trained or learn in a snap.

Theyre unlikely to chew up your shoes (or you!).

Theyre grateful, really grateful, for a warm safe home.

A dog named Indi was recently adopted from The Ranch (by, um, me). She is at least eight years old and was owned by a family who had her since she was a puppy. When they came upon hard times they surrendered her, in tears, to The Ranch. Shes a dream dog and is again well-loved. She cant go on many walks but she adores her ball and other toys and takes inexpensive medicine for her joints. Indi is a lover who has added so much to our lives and we hope to have several years with her.

Other fine mature canines are waiting for YOU at The Ranch. Ruben, an eight-year old shepherd mix, was removed from a bad situation. He came to The Ranch after a three-week stint in the hospital. Hes a real sweetie! Or there is Garret, an eight-year-old Cocker Spaniel. Hes at a foster home now, as the shelter terrified him. But hes ready for a forever partner — maybe you? Senior dogs for senior people, it’s a match made in heaven.
