My likes: I love furniture, so you'll often find me racing to the nearest couch. I'll also pester you to put me in bed if I have access to the bedroom. I love sunny days if my humans come outside with me. I also love blankets. My best days are spent cuddling with my foster fam on the couch begging for neck scratches!
My dislikes: I hate being alone. I will yell for you if we are separated and show you how unhappy I am. I have learned to lay in my bed quietly at night, but when the sun's up, I want you by my side. I also hate waiting for food time—my foster mom calls me a drama queen because I like to be fussy the last hour or two before it's time to eat!
I get along with: All people and animals.
My ideal home: Preferably somewhere that is one floor. I will climb steps even though I shouldn't. I would like to be close to you at night, so if not in the same room at least on the same floor.
My ideal adopter: It's important that whoever adopts me can dedicate themselves to spending a majority of each day with me. I'm a lady getting on in years, so I also tend to have accidents when left alone for 4 or more hours, so if you work a full-time job away from home then I'm probably not the dog for you.
Additional info you might want to know about me: I'm just your average mature pup. I may require extra care due to my age and breed but my loving personality and goofy behavior more than makes up for it. I will bring a ton of joy to anyone's life for as long as I can!
