Miss Dottie is a spunky older lady that, through no fault of her own, ended up in rescue. Her former owner unfortunately lost their job and tried to continue to care for her, but was not able and made the hard decision to surrender her.
Dottie does not see that well and would do best in a home with older children or those that have been around older dogs. Due to her poor eyesight, she will sometimes lunge but it is basically just her trying to judge distances. She still likes to play and will sometimes act like a puppy!
Dottie is getting ready to have a mass removed from her belly and could use some sponsors to help with the cost of the surgery. The doc says the procedure should be fairly simple and she will recover quickly.
Dottie would probably do best as an only dog, but she does currently live with another bulldog and a Shih-Poo in her foster home without any big problems. She can be very "alpha" though, and would need to be introduced in a slow and systematic manner.
