Regardless of when, where or how these dogs were welcomed into these families, these heartwarming 'Then and Now' photos demonstrate that these humans know that dogs are family for life.
If you would like to submit a photo (or two!) of a 'Then and Now' photo where the two images mirror each other, sign up to become a member of DogHeirs and upload your photo here on DogHeirs.com and TAG the photos 'Dogs Are Family For Life'.
You can also email your photos (high resolution is best!) directly to us under the Subject "Dogs are family for life" to firstname.lastname@example.org
"We adopted Sadie in 1997 from the Jacksonville Humane Society. We took this picture today... Sadie is now completely deaf so any attempt to get her to look at me failed, lol. This is Christian, Chasity, and Sadie."

"The photos are of my oldest daughter Amy and our wonderful little poodle, Bonnie who is 17 1/2 years old. She is now fairly deaf and blind, and a little bit dotty, but we still love her as much as when she was a cuddly little bundle of fluff, perhaps even more! She is a much cherished member of our family."
