Senior shelter dogs face a greater threat of euthanasia because of health problems and unknown quality-of-life issues. None of that matters to Julie Docherty, however. She’s highlighting how downright adorable—and adoptable—these elderly animals really are.

Docherty, who lives in L.A., first adopted a senior animal five years ago—an 11-year-old Chihuahua named Sir MoMo.

In an interview for The Dodo, Docherty said, “We don’t know how long we have together, but each day we share, we see as a gift.”
