In honor of Adopt-a-Senior-Pet Month, we’ll be introducing you to an adult furball looking for a place to live out its golden years throughout November. Today, we’d like you to meet Shilo, an easy-going dog who just wants a lap to snuggle in.
He may be 9-years-old, but Shilo has a lot of good years ahead of him. Everyone loves spending time with this terrier mix – from adults to children to other dogs and cats. His positive spirit is infectious, according to the Adopt Me Rescue of Studio City, Calif., who is currently trying to find him a happy home.
This pup would make a great family pet, since he loves meeting new people and exploring new places. And if you’re looking for affection, look no further than Shilo. “I just need a nice warm blanket to snuggle up in, or a nice lap,” reads his bio.

Adopting a pet is an amazing experience – and a big decision! Before bringing a pet into your home it’s important to consider your family circumstances and do your research on breeds.
