My story

Foxy is a senior girl 10+ who is in search of a foster to forever home to live out the rest of her years. As per her current foster mom, She loves to hang in the garden, lay in the sun, and nap at your feet. She’s not clingy and does not require cuddling, as she is quite the independent woman. She has no issues with separation anxiety and would be okay with a human who worked outside the home.

Cats unknown at this time, but she can be cat tested if need be.

She would do best in a peaceful home-maybe with another senior like her, or a mature adult singleton/couple. No children under 15 due to her size/lack of exposure and some visual impairment.

If you’re looking for a companion to watch TV with, listen to the radio with , work in the yard or read with, she’s your girl!

If you’d like to enjoy her golden years together please contact PAWS at the info below.
