city_girls RG @susiesseniordogs: SAN FRANCISCO, CA: Please note that you are looking at one of the sweetest dogs in the entire world. We know this because we met 7 year old Charleston in person yesterday and he stole our hearts!! And why no one has picked to adopt him yet is a mystery to us; paws down, Charleston was our #1 top choice at the shelter.

Charleston was found as a stray in a local park in San Francisco and brought to Animal Care & Control in December. And that's pretty much all we can tell you about his past. But his past is no matter to us today, because we know that, despite that his tucked tail, gloomy eyes, and a case of mange, Charleston is more than ready for love. He's actually craving it.

Upon first seeing Charleston in his kennel we melted. We brought him into a small meeting room, and when on the floor with Charleston it is so obvious that he just wants to be near you. He is so gentle and calm and just slowly saunters over to receive affection, and give it right back to you. Face licks and french kisses are the name of Charleston's game! Charleston might as well have 100% pure love running through his veins...and not an ounce of anything less.
The shelter's behavior assessment of Charleston includes: "Approached front of run with soft eye contact and loose wag when tester approached. Put ears back slightly for leashing but came out readily and relaxed once out of ward. Eliminated outside and shook off after, solicited tester.
In test room, dog immediately affiliative and came up to tester licking face and hands. Despite medical condition, tolerant of all handling (tester opted out of paws--extremely inflamed) and leaned into tester's legs.
Mild interest in toys, no food bowl guarding seen. Passed dog-dog test with a 5 year old boxer male. Dog was relaxed, allowed sniffing, then moved on. No anti-social behavior seen, no active play. Mellow dog, a bit timid during initial greeting but has not been out of run for weeks." To adopt Charleston, please visit Animal Care & Control San Francisco located at 1200 15th Street, San Francisco, CA. Please reference animal ID# A273232.

Adoption hours are EVERY DAY from 12 noon to 6PM, and Wednesdays 12 noon

city_girls Look at the beautiful basket of color for my pop's hospital room from my friends at Miss Trawick's Home & Garden Shop in Pacific Grove, CA. I'm living in SF now but they still gave me the locals discount! Can't recommend them enough! And the Monarch butterfly was a nice PG touch 1w

city_girls RG @superseniordogs: Look at that sweet face! "Happy pup Rudy is now 15 years old and going strong! He has his senior moments, and prefers quiet afternoons spent napping to playing with toys, but is in wonderful health and spirit, especially when food is present as a motivator ;) He has no teeth, as we had to have them all pulled when we adopted him due to prior lack of dental care, but does not let that hold him back when it comes to special treats! I am so proud to love and care for a senior dog and try to make every day of his "retirement" great. We think seniors are the perfect companions - snuggly, laid-back, already trained, and very loyal and loving! Thanks for spreading the word about these guys :)" Rudy is a super special super senior. Glad to see he's spending his golden years with a loving family!

city_girls ️RG @superseniordogs: @msoumis10 shared a super story! "In 2005, I lost my best friend Honey, a golden retriever mix, to cancer. It nearly killed me. Then, in 2007, my sister told she would pay the adoption fee for a new dog for me, so the hunt was on. I searched through hundreds if not thousands of dogs on Petfinder in a matter of days as well as looking at the local shelter. Then, I got goosebumps when I saw her face. She was in a shelter about an hour away. I immediately called the shelter and asked if she was still available. It was close to Christmas so they said she was due to be euthanized that week to make space for more dogs coming in. I told them I would be there the next day to meet her. When I first saw her she was crammed into a cage that was too small for her to stand up in. She had kennel cough, parasites, and was thin and not well cared for, not to mention she was an owner surrender for "running away" . I signed the papers right then and there. The first 6 months to a year were tough since she was a runner, but once she realized she was loved, she stopped completely. She just turned 12 in 2014 and I love her more and more everyday ️" Just goes to show seniors are super if you give them a chance! #supersenior #seniordog #superseniordog #rescuedog #regramapp 4w
