13 year old female / Available at the Station
Shorty was relinquished by her owner because they were moving in with family who are allergic to dogs. Shorty is very sweet and gentle. She has some age related hind-end weakness, but that doesn’t slow her down when the excitement of meal time takes over her. We also suspect that she is partially deaf. She recently had an eye removed because of a painful ulcer and is currently nursing one in the other eye. However, she’s coming along well. She is getting braver in approaching humans for attention when they come into the pen. Outside of meal-time when she barks with excitement, she’s relatively quiet. She does just fine with other dogs and if the spirit moves her, is even a bit social. She is good with a walk, so long as it is kept short. We are hoping there is someone out there who will fall in love with her and give her the forever home she deserves for the remainder of her years.
