I am a 60lb senior gal given up to Shenandoah Rescue to live out the rest of my years in a comfy home with a caring family. Until I find my furever home, I am hanging out with my foster crew and having a great time with all the humans and other pups in the house.
Speaking of the house, I do have problems getting up and down the steps because my hind parts are weak from arthritis. Lately, getting up the steps has been difficult so if you have a home with few to no stairs, like a ranch house, that would be best for me.
I haven't really met any cats yet so I don't know if I like them or not, but because I'm kinda a chill gal, I'm sure a dog savvy cat would dig me. Although I'm a chill kinda gal, I am still protective of my humans. It's the lab in me.
Even though I can spend time in a crate, I really don't need to stay there because I don't get into trouble like some of my younger friends. What I really like is spending time in my bed or at your feet, and I really love to be next to you on the couch, if you'll help be get up there with a boost. But make no mistakes, I like to be around my humans most of all so I'll probably follow you when you move from room to room. I also like other dogs who are chill like me. I'm not a fan of the young ones all up in my face so if that happens, I just go to another room where it's quiet and SMH at them youngins.
Some of my favorite things are back/belly/ear scratches and cuddling with my humans. I also like taking a bath and will step in and out willingly. I will always tell you when I need to go do my outside business and I'll also ask for those scratches with a little howl. I have a healthy appetite and LOVE treats.
Now let's address the elephant in the room, yes I'm a senior...13ish yrs young, and yes I have some medical issues (mostly related to my skin) that are being treated and will heal. Probably the most unique thing about me are my lumps and bumps that have shown up over the years. The doctor looked at them and said they are just lipoma's (fatty tissue under the skin) and I have nothing to worry about. I never got spayed, but apparently I've already been through menopaws (see what I did there? gosh I crack myself up) so I don't go into heat anymore, kinda like my foster mom. (oh wow, am I not a regular laugh riot?)
Well there you have it, I hope you won't think my bumps or skin issues make me unadoptable because my foster family tells me everyday that I'm beautiful and although I can be shy at times, I'm starting to believe them. So don't count out this old gal. I still have a lot of love to give.
