After losing our young lab in 2014, we had the opportunity to adopt Neo, which began our journey in adopting senior dogs. Neo's first family adopted him from PAWS when he was one but, the year Neo turned 12, his family discovered they had to return to Australia. They were heartbroken to realize that the long flight, quarantine, and his old age meant Neo couldn’t go with them; he was a beloved family member but, for his own good, he suddenly needed a new family. The first time I met Neo he curled up beside me, put his head in my lap, and just won my heart. Over the last 5 years, we've adopted 7 senior dogs and given them a chance to be spoiled rotten for as long as I could. Senior dogs—especially large dogs, often have difficulties finding homes once they’re at the shelter and Classic Canines help remove some of those barriers to adoption or by helping families before they have to surrender a loved pet. Amazing rescues like Classic Canines give dogs like Neo the best chance to live out their days being spoiled and loved. You can find out more about Classics by visiting our Facebook and there's a list of our adoptable pups also (https://www.facebook.com/ClassicCaninesATX/).
