19-Year-Old Shelter Dog Still Has Pep In His Step & Longs For A Loving Home

Sadly, senior dogs are often overlooked at shelters due to their age. But the cold hard truth is that many older dogs still have just as much energy as puppies do.

One of those dogs is Ace, a 19-year-old Cattle dog mix who still enjoys going for walks and playing fetch. He ended up at the Sacramento SPCA, through no fault of his own, and longs for a loving home to spend his golden years in.

He may be 19 and losing his eyesight, but his foster mom doesn’t want his old age to fool you. According to her, and as you can see in the video, Ace still acts like a puppy, and truly thinks he is one!

When his foster mom brought him to PetSmart, he was ecstatic to pick out a new toy to play with and carried it right out of the store. He’s even able to get into the car on his own with ease and still has so much pep in his step.

Ace is an amazing dog who is also very well-trained. He knows all of the basic commands and is a great listener.

He will remain in his foster home and continue to receive the best care until he finds a forever home.

Luckily, after the SPCA shared his story on social media, they were flooded with applications from people who are willing to open their homes and hearts to Ace.

Staff will carefully go through all of the applicants before choosing the perfect home for Ace.

Lucky Elderly Man Is Greeted Every Day By A “Friend” Who Crawls Out Of The Ice:

We’ve all seen some unique and unlikely friendships over the years, but this one here may take the cake!

One day, a starving otter appeared at an elderly man’s door wanting some food. Ever since, Seppo Laamanen, 65, and Iivari the otter have been inseparable best friends.

It all started when Seppo fed worms and fish to the small and malnourished otter who was clearly looking for food.

After that, the friendly animal repaid the kindness by visiting the man at his home in Punkaharju in easter Finland. This was the start of something special.

There’s no way Seppo could’ve ever imagined it’d all lead to this. This adorably unique friendship is one for the ages, and it’s something you have to see to believe.

There’s nothing like the bond between two friends regardless of the species! 🙂

10 Of The “Most Loyal” Dog Breeds On The Planet

Giving love and support to humans is something that some dogs do better than others.

While many dogs love everyone they meet and are willing to take treats or belly rubs from anyone, the pups we found are just the opposite.

These 10 dogs are some of the most loyal breeds on the planet. They are rock steady in their loyalty to their owner no matter what.

1) Akita

When the American Kennel Club (AKC) lists loyalty to describe the temperament of the Akita, you know they mean business. The beautiful double-coated working dog of Japanese ancestry is considered hardwired in protecting those she loves. They should be socialized with other dogs and people from the time they are puppies. Their silly, fun, but dignified personalities round out the loyal Akita.

3) Skye Terrier

Known as the “small dog with the big ears,” this adorable breed hails from the Scottish Isle of Skye, hence the name. Whether you live in the city or the country, this small dog with a big personality is steadfast in snuggling, playtime, and remaining loyal to his owners.

4) Beagle

This merry hound is friendly, curious and incredibly loyal. While he doesn’t mind the occasional couch potato time, this spunky pooch is energetic and merry. A fun fact about this hound: the breed standard is for 13 inches and under and another in the 13-15 inch category. No matter how you size him, these adorable dogs just want to cling to you.

5) Shar-Pei

This wrinkly non-sporting breed is standoffish to strangers but very loyal to his owner. His ancient Chinese roots are part of the charm of the Shar-Pei. Regal, strong, and smart, if you want a BFF for life, this loose-skinned pooch may be the right choice for you.
