Adoption Saves Older Dog

Bear was abandoned at the age of 16. His old age and his less than desirable look gave him a slim chance at getting adopted, yet a family who opened their hearts and home to this old dog, changed Bear’s life forever.

See how an abandoned dog, near death, transforms into a beautiful, loving, happy pet.

Adopting shelter dogs saves lives. Love, food and care make all the difference.

  1. God bless the family that decided to take this old (but young at heart), loveable dog into their hearts and family! Second chances mean EVERYTHING to abandoned animals. : )

  2. How could those heartless people throw away this senior citizen. So happy a real family took him in and is helping him enjoy the time he has left..

  5. I will never understand how some people can be so heartless, but I belive that this sweet dog has a better life where he is now. It was a wonderful thing his new family did.
