Dorothy is a 9-10 year old ginger colored houndette that was left by her family. I'm hoping they were aiming for a better life for her than they could provide as she is perfect in every way! She uses the dog door to go outside to do all her "outdoor" business. She learned the dog door immediately and has never had an accident since she has been in my home. Dorothy gets along with her sister and brother hound but we wouldn't know how she feels about cats. Her brother, Duke, gets a little growly every once in a while with her, letting her know she is in his space and she immediately backs off respectfully. She has quickly learned her place. Dorothy did show a little anxiety when I would leave for work in the mornings and would howl for a few minutes. All of that has subsided now that she knows I am coming back home and has no worries. Even though she is almost 10 years old, she loves to chase squirrels in the backyard and plays "basset 500" with her brother and sister, very active for an older gal. I think Dorothy would be great in a home where she was the only child, perhaps as a constant companion to retirees or simply someone who desires the greatest company of all; the company of a hound! Dorothy also loves children and does very well with other hounds, either way, she is amazing. I can't say enough about Dorothy. She loves to cuddle with you on the couch in the evening and loves her belly rubbed. She just wants to be near you. Dorothy is now accepting applications for furever humans!
