Here is sweet lady, Midge. Midge’s vetting is complete and she’s ready for adoption.
Midge is about 13 years old, has mild cataracts, but nothing stops her from chasing the squirrels. She is not a barker at all, and, is housetrained--not one accident at her foster home. Midge has had a backyard her entire life so wouldn’t really enjoy living anywhere without a yard to sniff, lay out in the sun and scout out plus go potty. She lets her humans know when she has to go.
She has a great appetite and is used to two meals plus a couple of treats per day. Midge put on a few pounds over the last couple of years because her owner, in her 80s, couldn’t get her out for walks and exercise. Midge is looking for a human who will get her for some regular exercise.
Midge gets along with her foster–dog “siblings”. But she loves to chase cats, which could be a issue for felines. She’s a great traveler. Her foster family crates her while in the car and she has done well with this. She sleeps all through the night in a huge blanket. She seems to prefer to sleep on the floor rather than on the bed.
Midge loves to get in your lap on the couch and put her legs around your neck and then put her face next to yours. If you sing to her "put your head on my shoulder" she will.
Midge is a gem and whoever gives her a home will never be sorry.
Midge is being fostered in the Olympia, WA area.
