    The Dog Aid Society’s Old Dog Scheme covers dogs re-homed at 8 years old or above. This means that the Society will cover costs for veterinary care for the dog for the remainder of their life within reason. We do not cover costs for routine treatments such as vaccinations, worming and flea treatment. If the dog requires special dietary food we will contribute 50% of the cost.

    This will alleviate the worry of the financial implications taking an older dog into your home. Older dogs make great pets! Why not consider an older dog?

Turbo's Profile

Turbo is a medium to large sized crossbreed. Despite him being 9 years old, he is still very active. He certainly doesn’t know he is an older gentleman. Turbo is a friendly dog who is always happy to meet and greet people when visitors come to the house. He can be quite excited when he first comes to greet you, however he does settle. Out and about he generally ignores people however would be happy to be petted. He has been known to try and lick children on the face. He could happily live with older children who are teenagers.

Turbo is good with other dogs. He has been out with a dog walker before where there were a group of dogs and he was absolutely fine. Turbo could live with a friendly female. He does chase cats so he is looking for a home where there are now cats in the home. Turbo unfortunately does suffer from separation anxiety and recently has started to scratch at the walls if he has been left. His current owner tries not to leave him due to this reason. Turbo will bark if the front door is knocked or if the post man posts letters through the mailbox. Turbo loves his own garden and enjoys nothing more than taking zoomies in it when playing. In his new home he would love his own secure garden so he can continue his fun. Turbo is fine in the car. He can be a bit excitable at first but then does settle. Turbo may initially pull when walking on the lead however this is just the excitement of going for a walk. He wears a Halti which does help when he pulls. Turbo is fine off lead and has a good recall. Turbo is an energetic dog who enjoys going for nice walks where he can be let off the lead and have a good run around. His favourite walks include places where he can have a swim as he loves water! Turbo is a very well behaved dog and will sit when asked.

Turbo is looking for a nice home where he will have lots of fun walks and would love his home to have a secure garden. As he isn’t happy being left he will need company throughout the day. Turbo is a big bouncy boy who would like his new owners to have large breed experience.
