Heather is a sweet older lady who is looking for her Forever Home. The shelter guessed her to be eight years old; the vet thinks she may be as old as eleven. Heather is not saying a word. She was found as a stray in Alabama and taken to the shelter. She was very matted and needed a good grooming. Thankfully, she tested negative for heartworms and is healthy for her age. She has a bit of arthritis and had a fatty tumor on her side, which has been removed. She is up to date on all of her vaccinations and microchipped.
When Heather was pulled from the shelter, she was very stressed and the volunteer who rescued her said she was shaking like a leaf on the car ride. After a couple of weeks, Heather decided that car rides are good and she now rides quietly and happily.
She enjoys the company of people and will gladly follow you around the house all day. Once Heather was more settled in her foster home, in the mornings she was so happy that she’d greet her foster mom in the sweetest way and almost have a little happy dance. She’s content to be with you, whether it’s on the porch while you have coffee or waiting for you to take a shower. She has no separation anxiety and great manners which are a big plus. She is well housetrained. Her foster mom says she is a perfect foster but is still shy. Heather is an excellent walking partner. She greets people very nicely and knows “Sit” and is working on “Sstay.”
She has been introduced to a few cats and shows no concern or aggression with them. We feel that Heather would prefer to be an only dog, however, because she does not care to share her bed and she prefers her space when other dogs are near.
If you have a desire for a sweet, gentle companion, Heather might be the girl for you.
