Almost that time of year again!
Don't forget about these awesome pets when adopting! just because they are older/less mobile/tripodular doesn't mean they won't be the best thing to ever happen to you!!
Check out petfinder.com's article on the subject.
For those who aren't aware petfinder is where we got Tonks, and 4 other dogs in my family. I wasn't aware at the time that bigger black dogs were in this category but I've since learned a lot on the subject.
Don't overlook a pet because it's a little older or has special needs, it will love you so much, you won't be able to imagine your life before. For serious.
