Silky Terrier

An adotable dog in Elizabethtown, PA

  • Senior
  • Small
  • Female

Update: I got to go see a nice lady for a spa day and now everyone says I am so beautiful! Check out my new glamour shots!! I have gained weight and no more nasty sores. My hair is soft and my eyes and nose are so shiny.

My foster mom and dad call me "Sweetie Dog" because I am so sweet :) Believe it or not, after 10+ years being a housedog someone let me end up lost and all alone hanging out on a porch. I was taken to a shelter and I was covered in sores, very skinny, and really dirty and matted. Luckily the shelter called 2ndChance and some nice ladies came and took me to my foster mom. I got a bath and went to a vet who gave me medicine. WOW! Do I feel better now! I have to have insulin shots every day and eat special food for something called "diabetes" but I don't mind at all.
I am looking for a quiet home with older people (no young kids) and maybe another very low energy dog would be ok. I generally don't care for other dogs though and just ignore them, and I do not play. I just need someone to pet me and let me hang out and help them watch TV or read. I'm real good at going outside quick to do my business and just turn around and come right back in. I will bark to let you know when I have to go out but please do not leave me outside long as I get too upset being away from my comfy house. I don't mind a crate if you have to leave me in one but I don't chew or bother anything in the house either.
If you can handle a sweet senior dog with a medical issue fill out an application and my foster mom will be in touch.
