9 years, spayed, 57 lbs, A1160985 Oreo is a sweet older girl who needs a special and caring home. She gets along great with her foster cat and dog siblings and has not had any accidents in the house. As comes with age, she is starting to develop cataracts and she sometimes bumps into things, but that is not slowing her down. She loves to go for walks and lie in the sun and to have her chin scratched. She also loves to chew on bones stuffed with a little cheese. Oreo loves to be near her people (including in the bed with you at night) and wags her tail when you are near. If you are looking for a couch buddy but also need a walking partner, Oreo may be a great match for you.

Everybody knows the term, “dog years;” which is equivalent to 7 “human years.” As it turns out, “dog years,” might not even be a real thing, according to a new study by the University of California San Diego School of Medicine.

They have figured out a better way of figuring out your dog’s age in relation to humans with a new formula.

Here’s the main difference; at the beginning, dogs age much faster than humans in their first year (a 1-year-old dog would be like the equivalent to a 30-year-old person) but as they get older, the age slower. It is kind of weird to think about it; a 9-month-old dog could start having puppies. So while the study disproves the 1:7 ratio of dog’s lives, turns out we still don’t have the best way to relate dogs ages to our own.

Every dog is different, and age is only a number after all!
