Dorothy is a senior Boxer girl, around 8 years old. She was first rescued from a shelter in Central California, then adopted. Unfortunately, the adopter lost his job, unable to care for her, and she was returned to rescue with a tumor on her left hind foot bigger than a golf ball, along with a tumor on her tail. The tumor on the tail was a benign cyst, but one on her foot was a mast cell tumor. She went through surgery with a toe removal. We thought her cancer may come back, but so far it's been a year and she seems to have no other tumors.

Dorothy is a sweet girl, GREAT with children and babies. She can get along with a large male dog that is fairly mellow, but it takes very slow introduction. Once she likes a dog, she is best friends with them. Dorothy is looking for a forever home or a foster home willing to care for her for the rest of her life. Won't you open up your home and your heart for a sweet senior girl?
