I got Riley when he was 10 months old from a breeder. He did not work out as a show dog. Like your mom, I did not want to go through the puppy training stage. Riley was fully house broken, didn't chew anything, slept through the night...it has been wonderful. I am sure he is a far better dog than he would have been if I raised him from a tiny pup.
Once I started looking for an older dog, it took me about 6 weeks to find Riley. A breeder referred me to another breeder who had him.
I think posting here is the best way to find an older dog. I am sure you will find a wonderful dog for your mom.
Good luck and keep us posted!
