The Brittany Foundation, a non-profit humane organization dedicated to the rescue of homeless dogs has several "senior citizens" in need of placement in caring homes.

Dolly, is a beautiful 12-year-old Pomeranian. This fluffy redhead might remind you of "I Love Lucy." Very precocious, she will become your best friend almost immediately. Why almost? Because you need to come bearing gifts - specifically, apples, carrots, bananas - really any food at all. This little "doll" enjoys spending time with her little dog friends, taking naps, riding in the car and being your best friend. On heart meds and doing fantastic, Dolly is an all-around wonderful companion.

LaVerne, a 10-year old Shih Tzu, is so sweet and loving, you'd never know she had a rough past. A puppy mill breeder before being rescued by the shelter, where she was dumped after no longer being able to perform her "job," LaVerne now enjoys hanging out with her rescued friends, taking naps and being a cuddle bug.

Seamus, an 8-year old snow-white Shih Tzu, was abandoned by his family and left at the shelter. This rescued charmer has an adorable and sweet personality. Blind in one eye, Seamus still gets around well and promises many years of joy for the right family. He loves to snuggle with people, but is not fond of other dogs, so he needs to be an only canine child.

Tiger, a 13-year-old Shepherd mix, was rescued off death row at the shelter. Why he was abandoned makes no sense - Tiger has a great temperament, is very mellow, yet still active enough to go on walks and enjoy life. He hasn't been tested with other animals, but should be placed as an only pet so he can enjoy his golden years in peace.
