Meet Dot

MEET DOT!

Hi, I'm Dot! I'm a sweet, house trained Springer Spaniel mix weighing about 45 lbs. I'm about 10 to 11 years old.

I'm looking for someone who would be willing to give a retired girl like me a home. My needs are few-- all I need is a couch to nap on and someone to rub my belly and feed me snacks. I like to keep my foster mom company wherever she is. (But my favorite spot is the kitchen.) I sleep quietly on my bed and sometimes the couch. I love to go for walks, and I have impeccable manners on a leash and around guests.

UPDATE: Like any lady of a certain age, Dot has some medical issues at this point. She has Addison's disease, which is managed with an injection (at the vet or you can do it yourself at home) once every 25 days. She is also currently on two medications which help her control her bladder, although we're trying out a different medication now and it's possible we could get her down to just one daily med. She also takes a glucosamine supplement to keep her joints comfortable. Despite her medical issues, Dot is such a happy, sweet, loving dog-- she has good quality of life, and we are hoping she will luck out and find an adopter who has the experience and financial resources to make her golden years lovely ones.

NOTE: Visual breed identification in dogs is unreliable, so for most of the dogs we are only guessing at predominant breed or breed mix. We get to know each dog as an individual and will do our best to describe each of our dogs based on personality, not by breed label.

We expect that all adopted dogs will enroll in a formal dog training class with their new owners. Obedience and training classes are an excellent way to learn more about your newly adopted dog, gain handling and training experience, and improve your relationship with your pet.
