Hi, there! My name is Meeko and I have quite a story! I ended up in a county pound as a stray with a tag with my name and phone number, but the number was disconnected. Then I was supposed to be euthanized (that's a nice way of saying killed), but a nice person agreed to foster me. Then when she could no longer keep me, the Rescue said that no one would want to adopt me and they never had me come to adoption events or even put me on their website because I am a senior dog and so they decided to euthanize me, too! But my foster person wasn't going to let that happen, so she found Tuffie's Animal Rescue and now I am in a foster home again and very happy, except that I would love to be in my forever home instead of another temporary one.
Even though I am a senior, I have a lot of life left in me that I want to share with you! I am mostly deaf, but can hear you if you clap or say my name loudly. The vet said I had some arthritus in my joints, so I am taking a supplement which helps, but what has helped me the most is that I have been on a diet and as I have lost weight, my energy and mobility has greatly increased. I will now run to the door if I think we are going for a walk or a ride in the car, my most favorite things to do besides eating and getting belly rubs! I am housetrained and bark very rarely, so I won't cause you any trouble. I am fine with other dogs and cats and kids, but older ones who don't want to climb on me would be best. I am neutered, current on shots and micro chipped so I won't ever get lost again! I weigh around 70 pounds and am supposed to be about 12 years old. My adoption donation is $100. I know that there is the perfect family or person just looking for a great, low maintenance doggy like me!
