The Most Wholesome Game
At first I thought this game was going to be your typical pay to win game. However, I was completely wrong about that. As soon as I open the game I was created with a very addictive song that was both upbeat and wholesome. Oh I love the idea that this game is solely based on a true life sanctuary for older dogs. The amount of cute name options for your sanctuary is amazing as well as having your own motto. I love all the activities you can do in this game like bake treats, do live streams, take requests, and “text people” while getting rewarded. I also adore the donation factors and one of my favorite things about this game is having a story for each individual dog. It’s so cute it really is and adore reading the information about each dog and I just started this game I’m only level two but it is amazing. I highly recommend this game to anyone who loves animals or loves dogs and just wants to start playing a cute game. I want to say that this is probably one of my favorite games that I’ve found in a while. I personally have a dog myself and I’m worried about her getting older, but this game is definitely comforting and I really appreciate this being made it’s a wonderful game and I highly recommend it to anyone.

Thank you for your absolutely amazing review of the game and we are so grateful for your support 💖🐶
Adorable with an AMAZING concept
I love the concept of teaching younger audiences that old dogs are still worth adopting even though they won’t live as long as puppies or younger dogs. That’s a huge issue in modern society and no one wants them anymore even though they’re so perfect. I have a geezer myself and he’s still as lively as a puppy (as lively as a grumpy old curmudgeon of a lap dog can be at least). I love that the dogs are shown to have so much personality despite being old and I LOVE that they’re based off real life senior dogs that have been cared for and shown immense amounts of love despite being old. I would love to join the foster program for OFSDS if i didn’t live in an apartment. I only deducted a star because it’s a pain to level the dogs up to the next story point.. I love repetitive games (I’ve been playing magikarp jump every day for nearly a year), don’t get me wrong, but because the point threshold for getting to the next chapter increases SO much with each level, it feels like I’m making little to no progress unless I leave the dogs alone for several hours for points to accumulate, and I don’t like doing that. Repetitive games are only fun to continually play when there’s some variation in the repetition and there’s more things to do while waiting. Other than that it is so adorable and I love the idea and the art style and how easy it is to get coins. :)

Thanks for playing! 🐶
most comforting game ever
the whole concept of it is amazing and exactly how we should be pursuing projects. supporting them with real life actions! it feels awesome to know that this game is inspired by an actual shelter for old doggo friends. and the design of the game itself is awesome, it’s simple, not too overly complicated, and has a really cute visuals. the dogs have cute designs and i love how each of them is different and you can look through their personalities, “post pictures” of them and see their real life counterpart. also the fact that there’s a wholesome plot just adds even more to this! you don’t have to pay anything to advance in the game really, you can work towards it on your own and if you do want to maybe treat yourself to spending a few bucks on something, it’s affordable and worth it to see one of your friends wearing a cute outfit and having personalized items. it also has little challenges and events and just… WOW. an awesome little game and extremely comforting with a good story and message, elders need love too! <3 please download and play this, it’s honestly given me a lot of comfort and it’s the only game i really have on my phone.
