5 Heartwarming Photos of ‘Dogs With Old Man Faces’

Want a dog that will love you forever but not pee on your rug or chew on your pillows?

Senior dogs often get passed up in rescue shelters, while families opt for young puppies. But those families miss out on the loyal, loving — and often well-behaved and already potty-trained — companions senior dogs can be.

November was Adopt-A-Senior-Dog month, but you can give a senior pet a forever home any time of the year. In honor of these wise and loving animals, we bring you photos and captions from Tom Cohen’s new book Dogs With Old Man Faces: Portraits of Crotchety Canines. Cohen’s book “combines heartwarming photos with humorous captions, sure to make any reader laugh and love their old dogs even more.”
