SENIOR SUNDAY! Our friends from @susiesseniordogs introduced us to the cutest little tripod! Louie is an 8 year old, three-legged rat terrier. He was brought into the local shelter with an injured back paw and he could not put it down. He was pulled by @littletailsrescue in Miami, Florida who had Louie evaluated by several vets - unfortunately, Louie's leg wound was from an old injury and there was no way to save his leg. And they had to amputate it. But Louie moves just as fast as other four-legged dogs and he loves to play! He is a much happier dog since the amputation and it likely had been causing him pain for a long time.
Otherwise, Louie is very healthy and he has no medical issues. He is now in a foster home but Louie is in need of his very own forever home. He is a chill with calm dogs but does not like it when dogs get in his face. He is outgoing and friendly, and he even knows how to amuse himself with toys! He loves to go for walks, he is good around people (even strangers), is good with kids, and ignores cats.
Louie is located in Miami, Florida. Little Tails Rescue accepts adopters from anywhere in Florida, or even further away, but an adopter would need to come to Miami to meet Louie first.

SENIOR SUNDAY! @susiesseniordogs presents Max! 11 year old Max is located in Cincinnati, Ohio and he has been looking for his forever home for one year already! If you're wondering how it can be that nobody has scooped this boy up yet...it's simply because of his age. Max is SUPER sweet and gets along with other dogs and cats. He has such a loving, gentle and tolerant personality and it make it all the more frustrating that he's been passed over time and time again.
Max was originally advertised as 'Free to a Good Home' on Craigslist. He was in horrible condition due to neglect. Thankfully, @recycleddoggies rescue in Ohio came to Max's aid and helped this sweet boy regain his strength, his health, and his beauty! But that was last year...and Max is still waiting for an adopter. Max has glaucoma in both eyes and he is blind (this requires medicated drops 2-3 times a day for the rest of his life). This handsome fella was never taught housetraining skills and will need some patience with that. But Max is so super sweet and he is worth every ounce of your effort and love!
If you are interested in adopting Max from @RecycledDoggies, please complete an adoption application through their website. The adoption radius for Max is within a 2 hour drive of Cincinnati, which extends to Columbus, OH, Louisville and Lexington, KY, and Indianapolis, IN.
SENIOR SUNDAY! @susiesseniordogs wants to know: love naps? Then Yolanda is the perfect adoption match for you! Yolanda can sleep at least 21 hours a day - it's exhausting being that adorable!
Yolanda is 11 years old and is the perfect companion for someone who is looking for canine company but doesn't have time for training or housebreaking or excessive exercise. Yolanda is just about the easiest, move-in ready gal you can find. Her main activity is snoozing and she is content to sleep the day away while you're at work. But she is also very smart and motivated and will happily show off new tricks she learns to your friends. She's the perfect combo!
Despite being so easygoing and low maintenance, Yolanda has been looking for an adopter for almost a whole year. Sadly, it's only due to her age that people pass her over. But they are missing out! Senior pets like Yolanda have so much love to give, she just needs to be given a chance. She loves food, snuggling, playing with toys...and, as we mentioned, napping of course! She is very well behaved in the home and doesn't even get on furniture without being granted permission. Yolanda only requests lots of snuggles and cuddles, that's what makes her most happy.
Yolanda is located in Rochester, NY with Brindle Posse Rescue. An adoption application is required. As long as an adopter drives to meet her, Yolanda can be adopted anywhere!
Please email Yolanda's foster at firstname.lastname@example.org for more information on adopting.
