My 90 year old neighbor may have to have his Senior dog put to sleep. IF he does he would like to adopt a smaller senior dog to keep him company while giving him/her a loving home. Do you get very many seniors?

Dear Friends, I lost my female border collie mix dog east of El Paso when I let her out to pee. She never runs away but there was a barrage of gun fire near us and she is so fast, that she dissappeared in the brush in the red sand near the Hueco Tanks turn off and she is still missing. I live east of White's City on a ranch and she will have to cross through Otero County if she is trying to get home. Please call me at 505-503-0335 if you see her
This is Hope & Chance from the shelter. They are wonderful, loving, well behaved dogs that are bringing so much joy to us. We are verrrrrry happy and they are too.
