Dot is a senior Maltese mix who needs a home with someone who is home a lot.

Dot is about 11 years old and was recently spayed, vaccinated, microchipped and had a lumpectomy on her tummy.

She’s visually impaired, but does see shapes and shadows. Because of her age, her hearing isn’t as acute as it once was either, but she loves going for walks and car rides. She also loves to curl up in the sun on a chair or sofa

Dot gets along fine with small dogs, but needs a home with no children, or visitors, under the age of 16.

It takes her a while to trust people. When she first arrived at her foster home she wasn’t sure what they were going to do, and would sometimes growl and give a little snap to make herself feel safe, but she quickly became comfortable. She will growl is someone gets too close to her food.

Dot is housebroken but may have an occasional accident when she moves into a new home. She would love to be with someone who is retired or works from home, and can be with her a lot. She’ll reward them with snuggles and kisses.
