A Little Bit About Me
Lovely Luna, of the mysterious genetic heritage, is a dear old soul, literally and figuratively. She still has plenty to give to the right family who loves senior dogs.
As a senior, Luna has earned the right to a home where she can retire in peace, enjoy the attentions of her people and not be bothered by other dogs or toddlers. She is tolerant with people and has a history of living with youngsters, but is not so willing to share her family with other dogs. She can walk politely on leash and be around dogs, but she does not like them to come hear her person.
Don’t forget that senior dogs still need exercise for health and to enjoy their lives. Luna needs to get used to more and more exercise and a special diet to help her lose some of those extra pounds. This will decrease the harmful effects of obesity and give her a happier and longer life. Even senior dogs love to continue training for mental stimulation. Bring her to Family Dog classes or indulge her with Introduction to Scent. This is a terrific new fun game that every dog enjoys because it uses their natural abilities in scenting and allows them to show you what they can do.
We think that Luna will get used to a crate easily, if that is your management preference. This might be good for the times when very tiny grandchildren come to visit.
A senior life can be very full and fulfilling. Think about it. Luna is a very sweet dog.
