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/
