The dog is neutered, house trained, knows a few commands, up to date on vaccines, on heart worm prevention and flea prevention and free.
Update: The current owner is no longer able to care for it due to poor health.
Update 2: To Saucy, this is not an advertisement.

There are many, many advantages to adopting an adult dog. They are often housetrained, some other training like leash manners, and they are past the destructive puppy stage. There is NO truth to the misconception that an adult dog cannot bond with you. I have rescued/adopted both adult dogs and cats, and they have been just wonderful friends and companions. If the dog fits your lifestyle and you like the dog - then go for it.

I would, I adopted my dog when he was 4 years old. You get the benifit of not having to go through all the hard work raising a puppy, and you get to spend a good portion of that dogs life with him.

1 year old is not to old. Technically, that dog is still a puppy. An older puppy, I grant you, but still a pup. Dogs aren't considered adults until their around 18 months.

I would only get the dog, if I felt it was a good fit for my home. I will say, that the age of the dog would have no bearing on whether I brought it home or not.

BTW, my first dog, was a rescue. She was about 1 1/2 years old and someone left her tied to a fence...abandoned. This dog bonded very tightly with me and became my agility & obedience partner. She lived to be 17 and was just a fabulous dog. I'm glad I took her and kept her.
