Meet Mariam!

A senior pet with lots of spunk, this sweet girl was abandoned at the Soffer and Fine Adoption Center at the age of 10. She enjoys the company of both humans and doggies, and she can be both energetic and calm. Mariam is more of a free spirit, so she will enjoy roaming the home and discovering every crack and crevice. When she gets excited, she stands on her hind legs and barks with an eagerness to see who is there and if they brought her any treats. Mariam will be the perfect companion who will stick by your side through fast-paced adventures and relaxing getaways.


The Advantages of Adopting a Senior Pet

It is very common for people to look for a puppy when searching for a furry companion to adopt into the family. But older dogs can be just as cute and lovable as puppies, and they often come with many wonderful qualities that puppies take years to grow into. Older dogs are open books; from the start, you'll know important things like their full-grown size, personality and grooming requirements. All this information makes it easier to pick the right dog and make that instant love connection that will last a lifetime. Many older dogs are already trained, too, so adopting a senior pet will save you a lot of time and energy that you'd normally have to dedicate towards training a young dog. Senior pets are also a great addition for families who live a more calm and laid back lifestyle. So what are you waiting for? Unleash the love of a senior pet today!
