Her hearing does cause her a few problems. She tends to back up and sit on the other dogs in their doggie beds. This irritates them and when they growl she can’t hear them. Then they get mad and snap at her and a little fight breaks out because Pearl doesn’t know what happened. For this reason we think it would be best if Pearl goes into a home with a male dog or by herself. It doesn’t usually happen with the male does in the home just the females.
Pearl also does not like to be crated or penned up. She will bite on the bars until her gums bleed. At her foster home she has free roam of the house with a doggie door. She is very well behaved and always uses the bathroom outside. She does occasionally play with one of the younger males here as well. She’s not just an old lady bump on a log. She loves sunbathing as well, so she needs a yard so her final years can be spent doing what she loves.
All of Pearl’s blood panels came out great. She is healthy on the inside and no heart murmur. She would make a wonderful companion for a senior or someone just wanting a loveable dog who will be devoted to them. She is more than precious. Her tongue hangs out the side of her mouth which is so adorable. Please consider opening your heart and your home to this senior gal.
Pearl is spayed, microchipped, UTD on vaccines, heartworm negative and started on heartworm prevention, and she has had a full blood panel. Pearl had some open fistulas repaired in her mouth as well as one tooth removed. Her adoption fee is $100 and $50 for seniors 65 and over.
