Story
Doris is a very sweet 13-year old Dachshund who is looking for a home with sunshine to fall asleep in every afternoon. She is very food-oriented and loves treats of all types. If you aren't fixing her meals fast enough, she will tell you to hurry up. Her favorite thing to do is nap in the sunshine, followed closely by napping in the shade, and then bedtime. Meals are also a highlight. She does enjoy going along with the other dogs in the house but recharging her energy in between activities is very important. Doris would enjoy short walks as long as it wasn't too cold, or raining, or snowing. Like all seniors, Doris has a couple of health issues. She has a heart murmur that requires medication twice per day. She can still do stairs if there is enough light to see them but as she gets older, stairs will become. Like most older, small dogs, she is dealing with a collapsing trachea. She can see well enough to get around but prefers proper lighting when navigating new spaces. Most of her teeth are missing now so very small kibble, softened or wet food work best. Her house training needs work. She knows she needs to go outside but doesn't really have a signal other than standing by the back door. She does appear to have been trained to potty pads as long as they are in the right place. She just wants to be in the same room as her people. She prefers to spend her time on a cushy dog bed with a plush blanket and it doesn't matter if you are going to sleep or watching TV or working from home. Are you the family who will love Doris in her golden years? Doris has been spayed, is current on vaccines, has tested negative for heartworm, had a recent dental cleaning with extractions, and is microchipped.
