I was looking for an older dog to adopt, around 10 years old. I had raised and trained border collies before, but I have two little boys and don't have the time for extensive exercising anymore. I was hoping for more of a couch dog that I could cuddle with and take on walks. Yvette found the perfect dog for me, Maizee, a 10-yr old rescue from Korea with heartworm. Maizee came to Utah for a few months of vet treatments, and during that time I kept in touch and got more and more excited and attached. When it came time for adoption, it turned out that Maizee was actually only 2-3 years old, but she had been in such bad shape they thought she was older. It didn't matter to me anymore, I already had my heart set, and she has been a wonderful addition to our family. She is sweet, adored by my boys, and loves to look for critters everywhere.
