I am a proud owner of lucy my 19 yr old jack russell foxie terrier.she is deaf and nearly blind and barks a lot. She has authuristis but gets by.

She wanders in a daze now and my question is, how old is too old,i love her to bits but i cant stand seeing her like this, she looks so sad.

19 is quite old for any dog, that is quite an accomplishment for your Jack! We had a dog (not a Jack) that had dementia and it is very hard to see. She would wander around for hours and bark at nothing. If your dog is no longer enjoying food or doesn't seem to get enjoyment from daily life, it may be time. However, that is a very very tough and painful decision only you can make. If she is not in any pain, you don't have to do anything but try to make the best of the time she has left by giving her lots of treats and love.
