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.
