I hope more people will start getting their dogs from local SPCA and other sources instead of going for that cute puppy everytime. They have some amazing older dogs that just need a stable loving home. Not to mention you are adopting a dog who is fully vaccinated, fixed and in some cases microchipped all for the meager adoption fee! Far "cheaper" than buying from a breeder or pet store.
If anyone is interested in looking at dogs in their area here is a link to the local SPCA website which has links to every SPCA with a webpage in Ontario:
If I had more energy and rescources I would be adopting another older dog right away. A couple of the branches have some wonderful older dogs, and even a beautiful blind white shepherd looking dog. Anyways maybe someone will follow the link and find the special older (or any!) dog they can help out.
