Stacey is the perfect senior lady! She is so gentle, quiet and just about as sweet as can be. She is such a polite little gem. She loves to be snuggled and showered with love, but is equally as happy snuggling up in her dog bed. She still enjoys little walks where she can stop to smell the roses. She will make a wonderful addition to any home.

Here is what her foster has to say!

Sweet, incredibly cute, quiet and shy little Stacey is doing her best to navigate a strange new world. Every day she trusts us a little more and I see flashes of her little spunky self. Her little tail is firmly tucked under much of the time, but she still has playful moments in the morning. She was afraid of the stairs at first, but quickly mastered them after a day. She’s afraid to see new people, but if they stop to talk to her, she cautiously starts to sniff them. Within a few minutes, she even started nudging a new friend for pets. A slow approach and soft voice are all she needs to know things aren’t so scary.

She sleeps soundly through the night (and much of the day!) and seems to be potty trained. She’ll relax by herself on a dog bed, but will also sometimes decide she wants to snuggle next to me. She’s low-key with our two resident dogs, and doesn’t mind when one of them curls up next to her. She did show a surprising side when she saw our skittish resident cat. Stacey decided she had to investigate that cat and even gave an alarm bark another time – the only time I’ve heard her make a peep. I’ve told Stacey she needs to leave the cat alone, so now she limits her interest to alertly watching the cat whenever she appears. I suspect she might do better with a confident cat who isn’t afraid of the Stacey patrol.

This is all a a sudden change for Stacey. But with a little time, patience and gentle encouragement, I am sure that this sweet girl will soon blossom into a loving, happy and spunky companion.

We’re delighted to report that Stacey is currently in a loving and caring home!
