PAM G, I have had some great older dogs re-homed, If you e-mail me on bobby.grumpy@gmail I am sure we can help you find a dog that would be suitable for you. This is Gyp who is re-homed and loving her new home.
This is her in her new home with new collar and making herself at home.
If you look through older posts there are so many Rex, Molly, Jack, Sam, and others that come in because of owners death or illness or going to live where they are not allowed pets.
It is great that people will give an older dog another chance, thank you for asking do get in touch.
