Discover why senior dogs rule when you fall in love with Billy Zoom!

Look at this face! Billy Zoom is a social butterfly, who is so happy to be at Muttville. I could have played with him all day! Instead we had a fun after-breakfast tickle session followed by some major cuddles.

Billy Zoom comes from Sonoma, and can’t wait for Muttville to help him find his new beginning!

This happy pup has the funniest little walk, as he prances around meeting everyone. He has an engaging disposition and loves meeting new people and pups.

This little guy has a lot of energy for a senior pup, and would do well in an active household. Could Billy Zoom become your new best friend?

We think Billy Zoom is 8 years young and weighs just under 14 pounds.

Fall in love with him at Muttville Senior Dog Rescue in San Francisco!

Happy 2018! Here’s to all the ways we can experience the positive influence of dogs

Happy 2018!! Here’s to a new wonderful year celebrating the many ways the human animal bond is demonstrated by dogs and those who love them.

Here are just a few ways we saw the power of the human-dog bond expressed last year:

  • Spontaneous cuddles in the middle of a dog walk
  • Compassionate responses to a dog who unexpectedly loses their person
  • A tired person getting up in the middle of the night to take their dog outside to pee
  • Keeping a second identical toy that is your dog’s favorite on the ready
  • Making a special celebration of your dog’s Gotcha Day
  • Happy conversations between dog and person in public

There are so many ways we see how dogs positively influence us, and these were just a sample. What’s so wonderful is that there are truly unlimited ways for us to experience the power of this bond.

We’d love to hear from readers below in the comments how the human dog bond influences you...
