    Dogs are definitely man’s best friend and having a friendly canine can bring so much joy into your home. People of all ages can benefit from owning their own pet dog including senior members of the family. Dogs can be a loving and loyal companion for senior people especially those who live by themselves. Caring for a dog is also a great way to provide a sense of purpose to older people. While dogs are great pets for older people, it is important to take note that only certain breeds are perfect for senior fur parents. So here is a list of the best dog breeds for seniors.

    Pit Bull and Her Best Friend Didn’t Agree to Be Separated from Shelter

    Everyone knows that a dog is a man’s best friend. Canine companions are known for their steadfast love and incredible loyalty. A dog will do anything to protect his master and history has shown us that this has happened again and again. However, humans aren’t the only species a dog can bond so firmly with. Today, we’re looking at the incredible story of two pups who formed an unbreakable connection. It’s a heartwarming story that we could all learn something from.

    For most people, a pit bull is a scary dog, one that is unlikely to become best friends with something as small and yappy as a Chihuahua, but in this true life story of best friends, that thought is proven wrong. In fact, these two dogs have a bond that no one can ever understand. Their special friendship is something that has shaped their lives in unimaginable ways! When the shelter they were both living in decided to look for a home for the sweet little pit bull, she showed them in an unmistakable way that she would not ever abandon her tiny friend.

    The Odd Couple

    It was October, 2014, when Merrill, a female pit bull terrier, and Taco, her male Chihuahua companion, were turned in to the Rocket Dog Rescue shelter. Their owner was the one to drop them off at the San Francisco animal shelter, though no one knows exactly why. It didn’t take long though for the shelter staff to notice that these were no ordinary abandoned dogs. They’d obviously grown up together and had a bond that surprised even the staff at the shelter.

    Despite attempts to separate them, the two dogs refused to be apart. It quickly became obvious that they should be adopted together and staff set about trying to find a home that would take both pit bull and Chihuahua. That proved to be nearly impossible and it soon seemed as though these two best friends would need to be separated in order to find them good homes.

At the heart of this debate, a situation occurred in Colorado that would ignite passionate opinions on all sides. It all started when one mother packed her daughter a seemingly healthy lunch.
