Sarsaparilla is a friendly, fuss-free senior pooch. She is incredibly laid back, independent and loving.
Her current foster describes her as 'sweet as pie to everyone as long as they are gentle.' She gives adorable tiny kisses, and still has a tail wag that will melt your heart!
Since she's an older gal, she is a bit hard of hearing, and her eye sight isn't great, but she tries her best to come when she's called. She also has some incontinence issues, and can't hold it for longer than 2-3 hours.
She still enjoys going for walks and stretching her legs out in the great outdoors. She doesn't mind other four-legged friends, either; in fact, she truly doesn't seem to pay much attention to them. She is friendly and patient with them, and never seems to get irritable.
She likes to wander outside, sniffing, and enjoying the sunshine. She really is enjoying the little things! She would do wonderfully with a home that has a doggie door, or an owner who possibly works from home to let her out to do her business. She would really appreciate a fenced-in back yard space so she doesn't wander too far.
Sarsaparilla needs a safe, loving, and comfortable home for her to retire and live out her life in. She has worked hard and deserves the good life! If you're looking for a sweet older gal pal, Sarsaparilla would love to move in! If you have questions, please email email@example.com.
