Working with Senior Dogs

Senior dogs may have some difficulty with their body, but they still want to contribute and be a part of your family! We have found their incredible wisdom, dignity and tenacity to be inspirational to us all. They are all…

Young at Heart

Older dogs have learned
to listen with their hearts.


“Blessed is the person who has
earned the love of an old dog.”
Sydney Jeanne Seward


Older dogs make
great new friends.

Older dogs are
good at giving love.


Older dogs ask so little of you:
a warm bed, a short  walk, some
good food & a piece of your heart.

Older dogs are
a joy to own!


A little bit older &
a little bit wiser


Senior dogs leave paw
prints on your heart.

You just have to love
an old dogs face.


“Old dogs, like old shoes, are comfortable. They might be a bit
out of shape and a little worn
around the edges, but they fit well.”

– Bonnie Wilcox ‘Old Dogs, Old Friends’

GSRNE strives to help unwanted senior dogs transition into a new home for the final years so ensure they receive great care, companionship and love later in their life.
