Senior Dog Accounts on Instagram We Love

While many find it difficult to resist the adorable allure of a puppy, living life in the company of a senior dog is an experience most people don’t realize they’re missing out on. With these well curated senior dog Instagram accounts you may think twice and welcome a loving senior dog into your life and starting posting your own senior dog Instagram photos.

Senior dogs are the best of dogs times two.  They are loving, loyal and not short on laughs, these grateful gals and gents still have so much to give. They do have their challenges with certain health issues prevalent in senior dogs and senior dog care needs so it is even more special to scroll through Instagram and find beautiful senior dog accounts. I especially love to see this wonderful side of senior dogs that often gets overlooked.   Added bonus: your shoes, rugs or rolls of toilet paper, have a way better chance of staying intact.

Because no dog deserves to spend their last days in the cold confines of a cage and senior dogs typically make up the largest population of dog rescues, we wanted to share with you just how much senior dogs have to give with these wonderful Instagram accounts that we thought portrayed just that!

The Dodo reported that Jenny M. never has to guess what’s on her dog’s mind. “Senior dogs know who they are. They have likes and dislikes and they quickly tell you, making our job to enrich their lives an easy one.” says Jenny For her 10-year-old pit bull Lexy (@lexy_the_elderbull), that means lots of sweet snuggling. “I love that she likes to be close. She rests her paw in my hand when we watch TV and shares my pillow when we sleep,” she says. While always an advocate for adoption, this lucky dog mama has a sweet spot for the seniors. “I think senior rescues are even more special. I believe they know how lucky they are to have been given a second chance.”
