Howdy y'all, my name is Mavis, and I am the cutest, most affectionate lady you could ever lay eyes on! I mean, with my airplane ears that are as soft as silk and my extreme cuddling abilities, you'll fall in love with me over and over ear time you look at me. I'm about 10 years old, weighing about 22 pounds. I do well with other dogs, but I love me some food, so I'll try to steal everyone's treats, and I should be fed separately so they can have their own food. I enjoy running in the fenced backyard at my foster home with my fur pals, chasing the critters, in true hound dog fashion. I probably shouldn't live with cats since I might mistake them for a squirrel or other animals that are fun to chase. I go potty outside, never making messes in the house. I could easily go on walks if you don't have a fenced-in yard. Can you imagine all the sniffs I could smell on a walk? Oh, and I love people so much! I would even be okay if I lived with some kiddos. They seem to be really good at petting me and giving me tummy rubs!
When I'm done with my naps throughout the day, it takes me a little bit to get up and moving since I have a bit of arthritis, but once I do, I'll be just fine. Once you get older, your joints become a bit more stiff. I would very much benefit from a forever home that doesn't have a whole lot of stairs because of this. I'd love to find a home where someone might like to cuddle in between my naps. I just need someone who is going to love me just as much as I'll love them for the rest of my days! Maybe that's you!?
