Since you work for a vet, maybe you can help me out: Does anybody adopt 16 year old dogs??????????? Really! We have one and a new baby.
Since one of them has to go and the baby is staying, I have been calling shelters, agencies that say they adopt “senior” dogs, etc. and I have not found anybody who will adopt this dog. Our only other option seems to be putting her down.My husband is afraid if we take her to a shelter, in 3 days, she will be put down anyway. I called a few of the “no-kill” shelters and they refused to take her in. I have considered giving her away on Freecycle, but I want to know that they will actually take care of her, not lie and then do something to her.
The first option is to find a new home for her. Some people told us to contact the vets office and see what is available there. I am calling
Any suggestions???????? If nothing comes to fruition, it seems her days are numbered. She would do well on a farm or someplace with a lot of room to run around.She is a beagle. A solution needs to be found one way or the other and the sooner, the better. Thanks!

problem, and ask that they contain the cat or get it fixed to avoid
