Hi, I wanted to share an adoption story. I adopted Chico through A Forever Home Rescue in 2010. He was a senior dog at the time – 8 years old! Friends questioned why I would adopt a senior dog as their life expectancy wouldn’t be long. Well, Chico just celebrated his 17th birthday this month!Ines Castro, Chico’s foster mom, had him for a few months before being placed with me in Maryland. Chico has been a stray who was taken to a shelter in West Virginia.

Well we sure have come a long way – in 2013 we moved from Maryland to Manhattan. And earlier this year, we moved to London, England! He is doing well and loving his new life near Hyde Park and Kensington palace. A real wags to riches tale. 😉

Senior dogs rule.
