How We Determine Which Dog Will Become A Sanctuary Resident

Often I am asked, "How do you get all the dogs to get along?" And recently another person looking to surrender their senior German Shepherd said, "It's harder to get my dog into Woody's Place than it is to get into Harvard." And there's probably some truth to that, because not only are space and finances limited, the bottom line is that we can't take every senior German Shepherd, because not every senior German Shepherd will be a good fit for our program. Woody's Place Senior German Shepherd Sanctuary is a true sanctuary meaning that it's not just a word in our name. We actually provide sanctuary for abandoned senior German Shepherds for the rest of their lives. In fact, our catchphrase is, "We are that place in the country where old dogs come to retire." Therefore, because the senior German Shepherds remain with us for the rest of their lives, we have to pick who is a good match for us and would not be. So how do we go about determining who is a good fit for the sanctuary?
