Adult dogs are a much better choice for the elderly because all they want is to do is lie in your lap, lie by your side and be loved. And one walk a day can be sufficient. On the other hand, if you get a puppy and you're elderly, the dog will have an energy level that won't match yours. When a dog has energy that's not being addressed, it becomes destructive. But if you adopt a dog that's eight or ten years old, it will still have several years of life left. At that time of its life, it's all about gratitude and easy loving.


The age of the dogs has been estimated by veterinarians based on their general health and particularly from their teeth status. It is an informed estimate made by veterinarians and should be used only as a guide.

BREED: Boxer X NUMBER: 9486 3133

Scarlet is a very sweet natured affectionate girl. She came from the pound with a lump on her ankle. It was diagnosed as an osteosarcoma, an aggressive cancer. She had only weeks to live if we did nothing. We opted to go down the amputation and chemo route to give her hopefully a year, maybe a bit more. We have found her foster home where she can be cared for and spend her remaining life as happily and comfortable as possible. She has a short coat and weighs about 20kg.
