A Wish For The New Year

Sweet, cheerful Brittany. Life was pretty comfortable in a loving home, but then the baby arrived -- and the baby got bigger and began to get too rough for a mature, gentle dog. So, in her golden years, Brittany found herself in a GRRI foster home. Life is really good there, with lots of love and attention, but what Brittany really wants is a home and a family to call her own. She's been in foster care for six months now, and will spend the holidays as a guest rather than as a cherished member of the family, through no fault of her own.

Like a lot of senior dogs, Brittany is such an easy dog to have around. She's housebroken, doesn't jump up on people, loves to go for walks (and is very good on a leash!), is good with cats, and is very, very affectionate. Given her past experiences, she'd rather not have to deal with young children on a regular basis. Ideally, she'd be an only dog so that she can get lots of attention and give all the love she's got stored up.

Our New Year's wish for Brittany is that someone will open their hearts and give her the happiness and stability she deserves. She's twelve years old, but with the vigor and affect of a younger dog. Still, the reality is that she's rounding the final bends in the road of her life. It takes special people to look past the quantity of remaining years to focus on the quality, but as anyone who has adopted a senior dog will happily attest, seniors have a way of giving back that makes the sacrifice of less time together no less difficult but completely worthwhile.

Are you that special person? Brittany needs you. Please let us know if you'd like to help.
