National Adopt a Senior Pet Month
At CBCR we treasure our senior dogs. They have been our loyal and faithful companions. Adopting a senior dog is a great option for those who do not have the time or energy to monitor a rambunctious youngster. While senior dogs are generally quieter and calmer, many of them are still full of energy well into their teens.
Featuring CBCR senior Beau.
Beau was picked up by animal control as a stray so there is no information on his background. He has been with his foster family for almost 1 month. He is now crate trained and knows basic commands. Beau gets along with other dogs, however, tends to be a bit protective of his foster family. He herds the other dogs in the house away from his foster family but is never aggressive. He loves his belly rubbed and stays very close to his foster mom. He is fearful of small children and should not go to a home with children under the age of 13. He loves being outside with the two teenage boys in his foster family. He is never too far away from his foster family!

Also featuring CBCR senior Gracie.
Miss Gracie is a mystery. She was turned in to an NC shelter by owners who said she had been adopted from a Border Collie Rescue. They dropped her off and never looked back. She was clearly a well loved dog at some time in her life. She seems to inspect every visitor and passer-by to see if they can, perchance, take her back home. It is amazing the loyalty dogs have.

The biographies for all our senior dogs can be found on the Super Seniors section of of our website.
However, like many dogs in rescue, after about 6 weeks some behaviors began to surface. When visiting with a young boy (8) who was very appropriate with her, she showed marked fear, to the point I had her evaluated by a certified behaviorist. After some discussion, it is apparent that she should not be placed with a family that has children under the mid-teen years.
