Harrison came into rescue after his owner died and he was left in the vet clinic for over four months.   This took a toll on his muscle mass from lack of activity.   He was turned over to a shelter and they contacted us.  Could we help.  We sure could!  
We  had a wonderful applicant and they wanted an older one-- I love the older ones, and it's great that others do, too.   Harrison is about ten.
He made himself at home.
He was a little unsure at first, but he is coming around.
He has arthritis, but is on some meds to help that now.   (All of my own dogs get help with that, too- just part of the aging process.)
His new mom and dad are so glad to have him there and they said they are glad for the opportunity to make his life better and that Harrison  has made their life better.  He now goes on walks, and his muscles are rebuilding and he even runs a bit.   I love that!
Harrison is settling in and even decided some lap time was a nice idea.  I love to have adopters who know it takes time for a dog to adjust, to learn they are home and are safe.   
Given time, they can become the best, most loving addition to a family.
