BSR takes in many dogs who only want to live their golden years knowing love-- sometimes for the first time in their lives. We know also that there are also those who are over 65 who are looking for the companionship and love of of a Little Brown Dog, but may on a fixed income or not able to handle a younger, more energetic Boykin. The goal of this Program is to place our sugar-faced senior dogs with those who might like go for leisurely walks, snuggle on the couch and generally spend quiet days together.
Program available Senior Dogs will be placed as "Available Senior" on our "Available Dog" page of our website.
Approved Adopters (you must complete an adoption application and be approved; please click the button below to complete an application), over 65, may inquire about a Seniors for Seniors match. (Note: BSR does not place on a first come, first served basis. We place dogs based on the best fit for both the dog and prospective owner. And you don't need to be over 65 to apply for these dogs, however those over 65 will be given priority consideration.)
BSR will offer a discounted adoption fee for our "Available Senior" dogs posted on our website, to qualifying applicants.
BSR will assist, on a case-by-case basis, with food coupons and veterinary referrals.

Hi there! Aren’t I a cutie?? My name is Josh, and believe it or not, I am 11 years young! I know I look young for my age, and really, it’s only the cranky hips that give me away as a senior, but the medication my fosters put me own has really helped a lot! I’m a bigger boy, but sweet and goofy. I like to “talk” to you and keep you company, and am looking for my special someone to love me. I have always been an outdoor dog, but my fosters are helping me adjust to time inside the house, and this thing called “house training.” I’m learning!! I crate up well for the night inside, and I know big guys like me aren’t supposed to be afraid of things, but if you reach into my crate for my collar, it kinda scares me. Maybe its just that I am not a morning dog, but really all you need to do is open my crate door and let me wake up and come out on my own. (Maybe I should try that coffee stuff that seems to help my fosters get started in the morning?) I am an outdoorsy guy, and LOVE to be outside as much as possible in a fenced yard or kennel run, since that is how I had always lived before, and I think I could really enjoy a farm or large yard to keep you company in. I was raised with another dog, and so long as I am introduced to new dogs carefully, I’m fine with them. Oh and one more thing…for the sake of my hips, I’d like to stay in the south where the winters are milder, if you don’t mind!
I know I have a lot needs, but mostly I need someone of my own! Is that person YOU?
