(WUSA) --If you're looking for someone special to watch the Olympics with, the Washington Animal Rescue League has just the girl for you.

Adelia is an adorable 12-year-old beagle mix who would love nothing more than to be your couch companion.

Although this sweet girl falls into a category of canines often overlooked by potential adopters for no other reason except age, anyone who has adopted an older dog will tell you that these senior citizens still have plenty to give! In Adelia's case, that includes a cheerful, loveable disposition and a desire to please.

Because she's past the energetic puppy stage, Adelia's physical activity needs are low: a nice walk or two and perhaps a short game of fetch. And with the exception of some minor skin issues for which she's being treated, she has no medical problems. We should all be so lucky!
