Silver Muzzle Match

February 17, 2013 – 10:55 am


While all of our Labs deserve the chance for a better tomorrow, our Silver Muzzled Labs (9 years and older) hold a special place in our hearts. Our goal is to find our golden agers that special home where they can finish their journey in comfort and at peace, knowing they are a cherished member of a loving family.

If a family adopts one of our Silver Muzzled Labs, their original adoption donation will be considered perpetual. After your Silver Muzzled Lab passes on, you may adopt another appropriate Silver Muzzled Lab from us, without an additional fee, following an approved follow-up home evaluation. This will continue as long as you remain an approved adoptive home.

Dogs of advanced age are given up for many of the same reasons as younger dogs, most of which have nothing to do with problems the dog has — moving to a place where dogs are not allowed, foreclosure, serious illness or death of a family member, a change in work schedule, a new baby, allergies, kids going off to college, a change in lifestyle, a prospective spouse doesn’t like dogs, not enough time for the dog, or the dog has simply outlived his usefulness or is too much trouble for his family. The reasons are as varied as the number of dogs that are given up each day.

Perhaps you’re wondering why you should consider adopting a Silver Muzzled Lab from us rather than a puppy or a young dog. Older dogs can be just as warm and cuddly as a puppy, and some of them will even try to curl up in your lap the way a puppy does if you allow them to. But more importantly, they have the advantage of coming with so many of the traits and qualities that puppies can take years to grow into. Because our Silver Muzzled Labs are generally more sedate than younger dogs, they make ideal companions for seniors, who may not have the energy level for a younger dog, and for families with young children, since the dog’s temperament is known and housetraining and obedience don’t have to be undertaken at the same time you are busy changing diapers. Click here to read the top 10 reasons to adopt an older dog. If these reasons aren’t enough, by adopting a Silver Muzzled Lab from us, you may just be making a statement about compassion and the value of life at all ages. Just as a puppy has his whole life ahead of him, so too does an older dog. You can give that older dog the best years of his life while at the same time gaining your new best friend!

One day you turn around, and it’s summer.
Next day you turn around, and it’s fall.
And suddenly, all the springs and winters of a lifetime —
Whatever happened to them all?
“The September of My Years” – Frank Sinatra

Labrador retrievers have an average life span that is estimated to be between 10 and 14 years. An older Lab may walk a bit slower and spend more time sleeping in the sun or dozing at your feet as you watch a movie, read a book or spend time at your computer. However, many of them remain in good health and still have years of love to share.
