I shouldn’t have worried about adopting a seven-year-old.  And, although not a senior, his soft, sweet energy was a real asset to our busy family.  He was pretty indifferent to me in the beginning but, as he aged, we formed a pretty special bond.  In A Member of the Family, Cesar Millan reminds us:

If you are a senior, to avoid struggling with a dog that has a higher energy than you have, I strongly encourage you to look into the possibility of adopting an older dog. Older dogs and older humans are humming on the same frequency.  They still want to enjoy every day of their wonderful lives, but they want to do it at a slower, more relaxed pace.
