Dottie . . . a Special Needs little dog
Dottie is a tiny 10 year old Terrier mix. She is a special girl who had a dark past and now needs special attention. She is looking for that perfect person to be her forever mom or dad and take care of her for the rest of her life. Dottie is on thyroid medicine twice a day, and will need to continue that throughout her lifetime, but she takes her meds like a good girl every day.
Dottie has been in Second Chance Pals (SCP) foster care and has made progress in her socialization. At first she was terrified of humans, but then there was a wag of her tail, followed by shadowing her foster mom through the house. She is still very timid and cautious, but the sparkle in her eye shows hope for continued progress. Dottie is learning to walk on a leash, and though not housebroken, she is working on pee pad training. Dottie is totally non-aggressive, and needs a quiet home with no small children, as the noise and activity frighten her. She needs a loving, patient home, with a mom or dad who can continue to work with her and love her.
Dottie is safe in foster care but needs the love of her forever mom or dad. She is a work in progress, a long term project for a special person who can love her unconditionally. If you are that special person and interested in meeting Dottie, please contact the shelter at 423-442-1015 and we will contact her foster mom for a meet and greet!
The shelter is working hard for our animals. We need kong type toys to fill with treats, and silicone muffin pans to freeze treats in for those hot summer days. We can always use cat litter and bleach. We also need crates of all sizes.
NOTE: All animals are spayed/neutered before adoption.
Please spay or neuter your own pets and help us keep our county's pet population under control.
