Meet Rosie, a 10-year-old female pit bull. Nothing is known about her past, because she was all alone on the streets until she found her way to the shelter. It is hard to imagine why a “senior girl” was out on her own, but she is doing well at the Agoura shelter thanks to all the attention given to her by the great volunteers.
Here are some things you should know about her:
- She is good with people and other dogs.
- She has an easy-going demeanor.
- She is easy to walk.
- She loves baths.
- She enjoys riding in the car and was excellent on her trip to the vet.
Worried about adopting her because of her age? Don’t be! Vet attention and medication are needed at all ages and may or may not be more costly for an older dog. She had her senior wellness check up paid for by a non-profit group and other than some arthritis in her knees for which she needs an anti-inflammatory, she is in good health with normal blood work results. She needs the same things as younger dogs do: good nutrition, love, attention and regular vet visits.
Did you know that older dogs generally have had some obedience training? They know what "no" means and have learned many of life’s lessons. They tend to settle into a new home easily, have mellowed so they can focus on things you may want to teach them and are less demanding because they don’t need the same amount of exercise that a puppy needs.
Rosie is a low maintenance gal who needs little exercise (short walks at the most) and makes a great companion to hang out with. So if you are looking for the love that “pitties” like her are known for, look no further
