These old dogs are special picks at sanctuary

NORTH VERSAILLES, Pa. - Eleven dogs greet visitors at the door of the lovely 115-year-old Victorian house. There's a lot of slow-motion tail wagging but very little barking and no jumping up and down. Most of the dogs have a lot of white around their muzzles, several limp a bit, and some have the rheumy eyes that come with great age.

Jax, a 1- to 2-year-old male Labradoodle, is available for adoption from Pals Animal Rescue. After his owner died, he was given to a family that found they could not care for him anymore. He is about 60 pounds, and aside from being a bit nervous and needy (like many doodles are), he is great with other dogs and with cats. He doesn’t mind the birds in his foster home either. He is an active dog who really likes to be with the people in his home.

He is house-trained and loves going for walks and rides in the car. He is always in a great mood and will lift your spirits when you are down with his always positive attitude.
