Think you know what an older dog like me can and can't do? Well think again! Though I have been judged as being approx. 8-9 years old, that hasn't stopped me. My foster angel can tell you that I am still very athletic. I LOVE a good hike, I can soar over a cattle guard, and I can also scale a 5ft gate. I am pretty sure I can keep up with you. But the benefit of me being a proper grown up dog is that I know my manners and I am really good with commands - plus you CAN teach an old dog new tricks (see the jumping over 5ft gates). I had a tough life and so now I like to be the alpha dog. I am ok if you have a dog, but I like to be the boss dog, though what do you expect from an experienced girl like me? I don't mind being the only dog in your world, and I enjoy being part of a family, though smaller kids are a bit much for me - I prefer them to be bigger, like the sulky age, that way I can lie with them and listen to their woes. I am super loving and can't wait to meet you and be your best friend, your confidante and your hairy shoulder to cry on. So contact and find out about me and lets go on some adventures!!
