Today's feature is a 12 year old female Dalmation named Sophia. It makes me sad when I see these older animals looking for new homes ... I always wonder how they ended up there? Anyway, Sophia sounds like a nice lady who is starting to show her age. She reportedly gets along well with the other dogs in the house, however the rescue has listed her with a "no kids" clause. Sometimes this is done with senior animals because children can tend to play too roughly with new animals ... the rescue can't KNOW that your kid is "different", just as you can't tell that if your kid accidentally fell on the dog, the older arthritic dog wouldn't snap at the kid out of surprise/pain. Often this sort of clause is for the safety of both the dog/cat and the children. If you're looking to add a senior dog to your house, consider Sophia. She is currently in foster with Second Chances Dalmatian Rescue & Sanctuary in Ortonville, MI.
