ISCP Thesis-Old Dog New Life

Sunny gained a Distinction for her wonderful thesis on the positive impacts of fostering or adopting a senior dog for both the dogs and the humans, which was based on a 30 question survey that was completed by 195 people. In this, she notes that “The data collected indicates that once the dog is placed in the fosterer/adopter’s home, in most cases and despite a poor prognosis provided from the shelter or rescue, immediate improvements in the senior canine’s health and overall well-being are observed.”
