The girl who deserves the world, Dorothy!
Dorothy is a 6 year old, wonder mix of a few shepherds and huskies, weighs about 45 lbs, and is a proper lady who knows how to behave. She is a rescue from ESLR where she spent many years, after being saved from a family who tried to destroy her need for love and warmth. But they failed to break her spirit and her absolute love for people. She has such good manners and is great at home, on the leash and in a crate. She usually does go to bathroom outside, but needs to go more currently due to some medications. She has been spayed.
Dorothy is an adult dog and has stayed in the shelter for 5 long years. She has unfortunately been diagnosed by TVT that mimicked symptoms of heat. But the best news is that she has to visit the vet weekly for 6 weeks and medicines will cure her completely! Her age also has given her an iffy back leg which makes her avoid stairs. But she is okay being picked up and going on walks.
Dorothy is an amazement with eyes that stare into your soul! This girl knows only love and nothing else! She is a constant snuggler and adores getting pets. She gets excited around food, but understands that her person is the alpha. She may grab treats a bit too enthusiastically but that’s purely out of excitement. She has never shown food aggression though, even around dogs. She is a social butterfly and loves to be out and about with her foster mama. She looks forward to meeting new people and more love! She has not shown any destructive streak, doesnt bark/whine and is just a delight! She is polite with other dogs, but tends to leave them to do their own thing. She is yet to meet kids or kitties, but her friendly nature makes us believe that she would be great with older kids who understand her age and needs.
Dorothy has had a hard life with an unthinkable past, but continues to show incredible love. She is the epitome of unconditional love. She is just thankful for a warm home and will fit in beautifully in a family who shower her with love! She would be wonderful as an only dog or even with a canine companion. This pet’s adoption fee is $300 and that includes spaying/neutering, shots and microchip.
