My name is Shadow and I am a sweet and gentle senior girl in need a a place to retire. My "sister" Gizzy (also available for adoption through Finding Shelter) and I were living with our elderly, human dad on his farm. It was just the three of us and we spent all day with him. It was pretty great. But our dad got really sick with Leukemia. He knew that he was not going to get better but was so worried about us. We came to Finding Shelter as the first two dogs in the Finding Peace program, a special program designed to help animals who need a place to go when their humans get sick. Anyway, we moved into our awesome foster home and recently heard that our former human dad passed away. It was so sad, but he felt better knowing that we would be safe. I would love to find a home with my sister Gizzy. I just love to be with my people. I follow my foster mom around the house and cry when she leaves. Finding someone who is retired or works from home or can take me to work with them would be splendid! My favorite thing to do is to cuddle up on your lap or next to you where I feel warm and safe. I know that I am older and might not have lots and lots of years left to spend with you, but the time we will have together will be happy and special. I am a true rescue with lots of love to give and lots of personality in my tiny body. I just need someone to give me the love I crave.
