This classic beauty is named Betty White! Betty White is a 9 year old Poodle mix who was originally adopted from a Philly shelter as a puppy, but recently returned when her family could no longer care for a pet. Betty White landed a foster home with City of Elderly Love and is now on the hunt for a loving retirement home!
Betty White is a petite girl with a gorgeous white coat. You may notice that Betty has age-related cataracts which make it hard for her to see much more than shapes and shadows. She has adapted well to being mostly blind and uses her sense of hearing to navigate new surroundings. She has no trouble using stairs, can find you quickly, especially if she knows its time to snuggle, and isn't at all hesitant to explore her surroundings. She has recently received a clean bill of health at our vet!
Betty is quick to make friends with everyone she meets and will be nuzzling your hand for pets before you even know it! Betty is currently living with other dogs and a cat, all of which she gets along with wonderfully! She'd do well in a multi-pet home. She is currently working on learning the layout of her new foster home so is getting a refresher on housebreaking, but obviously wants to use the backyard and walk-times to go to the bathroom. Betty is also getting used to spending time in a crate when her foster family is away from the house and gets a little anxious when being left, which may just be due to the recent living situation changes she has experienced. She may just need some patience and help adjusting to her future home and daily schedule. Consider adopting this adorable, loving little lady!
Betty White is available for adoption through City of Elderly Love. She is spayed, vaccinated and microchipped. She is also negative for heartworm and lymes disease. Interested in meeting her?
