7 Reasons To Adopt A Senior Dog

According to most veterinarians, a dog falls into the “senior” category around age seven. The size of a dog, however, affects this categorization. Smaller dogs mature slower and become seniors later in life than larger dogs. Animal shelters are filled with healthy and active senior dogs that are in need of a home. When you’re thinking about picking up a dog from your local shelter, don’t look past the older dogs. They make great pets for a number of reasons. 1. Senior dogs at shelters need homes just as badly as younger dogs. Many older dogs were once owned and

Internet To Life Net: How Social Media Is Saving Dogs

One day in 2015, Johnjay Van Es’ wife Blake got a phone call about a Chihuahua found in an alley. Consequently, he posted the dog to his Instagram to see if anyone recognized her or wanted to adopt. Since Van Es is, along with Rich Berra, part of a nationally syndicated radio team with a lot of followers, people were messaging him in seconds about the dog, which soon found a great home. After he told the story on-air the next day, he started to get calls and photos from other people who had found dogs and so LovePup was

If You Can’t Adopt…

There are hundreds of millions of homeless dogs in the world — some estimates say as many as six hundred million, and almost all of them wound up that way because of the failure of humans to do their part. Either people did not give strong Pack Leadership and gave up the dogs because of behavioral issues, or they didn’t provide proper protection, so the dogs ran away. There are also people doing their part to try to reverse the trend, either by providing no-kill shelters, operating rescues that place dogs in homes, or promoting spay and neuter. They’re doing

Dogs Get A New Lease On Life In 3-D

3-D printing is a fairly new technology that is rapidly moving toward the mainstream. Although the technique was first described in 1981, it wasn’t until early in this century that commercial printers began to be produced, but only in the last five years that prices have dropped to consumer-friendly levels, from $20,000 to less than $1,000. It’s even possible now to take a file into a place like Staples and have the model 3-D printed there, or to use cloud computing and a site like Shapeways to have the item printed and sent to you. In many ways, we’re getting

See How These Angels Got Their Halos

Since dogs experience the world through nose, eyes, ears, if a dog goes blind or deaf it doesn’t hold them back as much as a human, since we rely more on our eyes and ears. Dogs are pretty good at adapting so that they can navigate by scent or sound alone, and their whiskers also serve as a way to sense the environment around them. However, human perception being what it is, we wind up feeling sorry for them, and that negative energy can make them anxious and fearful. In some cases, people simply abandon dogs that go blind. Once

Jacey Birch: From Pet Lover To Animal Advocate

Since I was a tiny tyke growing up in Miami, I had a hobby of helping animals, whether it was saving a squirrel that fell out of a tree, or finding a feral cat a home off the streets, or bringing stray dogs home for my parents as presents. Even during visits to a family farm in Alabama, I proudly picked piglets out of a cotton field, rescuing them from the scorching sun while letting one of them call my grandma’s house his new home. I named him Arnold. There were many more names, many more animals, and a heart

Senior Citizen Canines: Dog Breeds For Mature Pack Leaders

People are always asking Cesar, “Which breed of dog is the right one for me?” His answer to the question is that breed doesn’t matter. Energy does. If you want to have a balanced relationship, start with a dog with an energy level the same or lower than yours. However, breed can make some difference if the potential owners have certain physical limitations. You probably shouldn’t have a Great Dane if you live in a studio apartment, or a slobbery bulldog if you have allergies. Likewise, as humans age, they may experience changes that can limit whether they can have
