Possum is a peaceful soul. She has a sweet personality and is a very quiet and loving girl. She’s a wonderful companion for long walks or snuggling on the couch. Though she's the only dog in her foster home, she socializes well with other dogs. She has such nice household behavior that she does not need to be crated, but also doesn't protest being crated if preferred. If we had to describe her in own word it would be -- mellow.

This lovely lady is about 9 years old and weighs 45 lbs so she's a nice medium size well suited for city or suburban living. Because of her gentle spirit, she can join just about any loving family and would be just fine sharing her home with other pets, kids, you name it. 

Possum is vaccinated and will be spayed and microchipped prior to adoption. She is currently being treated for heartworm but can join her new family at any time as the rescue will continue to pay for her treatment even if she's adopted prior to completing it. She also recently had an echocardiogram which confirmed she has a valve issue with her heart but thankfully is doing great, does not need any medication, and our vet simply recommends that she get echocardiograms twice/year for monitoring.

Her adoption fee is $150 and our survey can be accessed here: http://www.onetail.org/adoption/apply/

About One Tail at a Time, NFP

About Our Rescue Group...

One Tail at a Time is a no-kill animal rescue based in the Chicagoland area. Working with a growing community of dedicated volunteers and foster homes, as well as boarding and daycare facilities, we are able to rescue animals from potential euthanasia and help lower overpopulation in area shelters.

We focus on finding permanent homes for our dogs by working to match the lifestyles of potential adopters with each dog's personality and needs. This, combined with our commitment to providing new adopters with education and support for the life of their dog, ensures that more dogs stay in their new homes permanently, reducing the number of pets that are returned to the rescue or shelters each year. All of our dogs are adopted fully vaccinated, heartworm tested, spayed or neutered, and microchipped.
