A Sterling Example of a Senior



Breed: Chesapeake Bay and Labrador Retriever

Age: 8+ year old

Gender: male

Weight:  75 pounds

Came to the shelter: 10/25/14


Hello, my name is Sterling. I’m friendly. I’m affectionate.  I’m eager to please. I’m house trained.  I’m easy to walk on a leash. 

I realize it takes a special person to adopt an older dog.  I sure hope that special person finds me, and soon!

Listen, I’ve got a lot of good years left to be your best friend, a wonderful companion! I promise to be a great addition to your family.

As part this shelter’s senior dog discount program, you pay for my dog license ( if you live in Mendocino County) and  you decide the rest of the fees.



Shelter hours:
Wednesday: 10-7
Tuesday, Thursday, Friday, and Saturday: 10-5
Sundays Monday and holidays: CLOSED
Adoptions must begin 1/2 hours before closing.
