ADOPTED!!! SPECIAL NEEDS GIRL. Dottie is a very sweet 6 yr old sable female that just came into rescue. She is crate trained and has lovely manners. She gets along well with other dogs and is playing with a 5 month old puppy in her current foster home. She is very loving and is always looking for a hand with nothing to do to give her some ear scratches! Dottie had a mammary tumor removed which was cancerous, but it was not an aggressive form of cancer and all was removed. She is a breast cancer survivor and wears her pink ribbon proudly! She will need a chest x-ray every 6 months for 2 years. Dottie also has severe arthritis in her elbow and hip and will need to be on a joint supplement and possibly pain medication. As you can see from her video, she is still quite playful. Dottie had also been shot in the foot by some abusive boys. One toe is partly missing and another (a weight-bearing toe) was broken and never treated. That toe healed completely crooked and therefore offers no ability to help bear weight on that leg. This does cause her to limp some. She would need a house without steps to the outside or only one step.
