But you need to know rescue dogs can be nervous and fearful. But once you can their trust, these dogs will love you forever.
There are three common age categories of shelter dogs: puppies, young adults, and seniors.
Puppies tend to be eight weeks to nine months old. Most are from unplanned pregnancies from parents that were not neutered or spayed. Some of these puppies may wind up with health issues because the mother dog didn’t get proper prenatal care.
Senior dogs are eight years or older that, unfortunately, are often surrendered because their owners are too old or ill. Occasionally, the dogs end up at the shelter because their owners have died.
