Old Dog New Home

Hi Everyone!

We just adopted a seven year old Great Dane. He's a sweetheart and is truly a gentle giant. Zeus is the biggest couch potato which is great because he matches our activity level .

As an older GD, he suffers from joint problems and is a little stiff moving around, but again, he's lazy so he doesn't seem to mind much. I love having Zeus be a part of our family.

Great job on the adoption. This is a great thing to add to his diet every day. It does wonders for those joints.

Congrats on the new family member. Awesome you gave a home to an older dog. Did you have to make room for such a big guy?

Congrats! Giving a home to an older dog is a very generous thing to do. Enjoy the wisdom of experience in those canine eyes.

I have already decided that the next dog I bring into my home will be a senior There is something about those sweet grey faces!

If you can, you should post some pictures of your boy! I'm sure everyone would love to see him, I know I would
