Default How to place an older dog?

Here's a sad story that is all too common.

My vet has been boarding an older (11)
Miniature Schnauzer for some time. The
dog's owner had to go into assisted living
and couldn't take the dog with him.
(Actually, it's a bit more complicated
than that, but the details are not necessary.)

Apparently even the rescue society was
not interested because of the dog's
age. I met the dog and he is great
and in good health, teeth cleaned and
ready to join a family or older person.

If this were a Lab or a dog likely only
to live another year or two at most,
maybe I could understand.

Anyway, when people die or are
placed in what we used to call
"old folks homes", all too often
uncaring relatives do not try to
place pets.

I'm trying to find a home for this
dog. Miniature Schnauzers can
live to be 15-18.

This dog would be right here
beside me, but he exceeds the
ridiculous 15 pound limit of
my condominium association.

If you know anyone in the
Houston, Texas area who
might be interested, let me
know.
