    Great primer for those rescuing, adopting or otherwise providing a previously domiciled Dog a welcoming new forever home.

    A great resource for anyone seeking to educate themselves and consider the unique needs, emotional considerations and mindsets of older and established Dogs who may later in life find their forever homes. Provided in a simple and easy to read format, canine behavior and psychology is discussed in an easily digestible and approachable manner, context and progression. As the author mentions that every chapter could each encompass its own book, an excellent job is done condensing the high points of areas of concern along with helpful hints and clues into canine behavior making transition into a new home and environment all the less stressful for pet and pet parent. A must read resource and starting point for anyone either considering opening their heart and home to an older Dog or whom has already brought their new family member home and seeks to make the transition as positive as possible. If you can read this before bringing your new older pet home, all the better - as your new Dog will most certainly thank you! The book is an invaluable resource on understanding the needs of your older pet whose prior background may or may not be known to you and how patience and empathy are crucial to building the lasting foundation for a harmonious bond between you both. While the book is geared towards both experienced Dog owners and newbies, anyone with an interest in dealing with older adopted Dogs in general or anyone volunteering in an animal shelter can benefit from the insights and suggestions presented in this book.
