I have two great dogs, Ross and Cleaver. They are standard poodles, five and nine years of age. I came across a 15 year-old poodle in a no-kill shelter not far from me. For some reason, I am somewhat drawn to this dog. Apparently, we was an owner surrender. I am fairly close to adopting him, but my rational side is telling me that it makes little sense. The dog is living in a kennel environment with about 40 other dogs, so he is not homeless and is being given care. He seems to be doing okay, and for 15 years old, he is pretty active. His age is just a guesstimate, so he could be younger or older. Has anyone here ever adopted a dog so old? Anyone care to add a comment as to why it would be important for me to adopt him as he is not in immediate danger? Or, maybe you can share why I should NOT adopt him. I would think he could literally pass on anyday. It could be best to just let him stay where he is instead of uprooting him yet again to go to a new home at such a late stage in his life. Thanks for ANY input.
