Dorothy is a sweet, silly senior gal with just the right amount of spunk. She is considered a large dog and weighs 81 lbs. At first glance, Dorothy seems like your average senior, calmer gal. But if you give her a stuffy toy, she will perk right up! She loves getting pets and will sit, shake, and lie down for snacks. She loves going for light walks and exploring the outdoors. Due to her age, Dorothy has arthritis in her legs which makes it difficult for her to get in and out of cars and up and down stairs. That being said, as long as you have someone to lift her every once in a while for a car ride, she is a breeze! She is very polite and comes up to you, looking at you with her sweet amber eyes for more scratches. Great news - her adoption fee was fully sponsored by a loving fan so she is no cost to take home. If you're looking for a loving, easy-going companion who is great with kids and animals of all sizes and ages, take Dorothy home today!

I have done well on doggy play dates at the shelter!
I don't have a history with cats, but may do well with them with a slow introduction.
I interacted with children ages 5-12 at our camps and would love to be a part of a family with children.
