Millie is an older girl, maybe 13 or 14, with the spirit of a young dog. She was a mess when found wandering the streets a couple of months ago, but she?s all cleaned up now and loving life! One of her eyes had to be removed and she?s a little hard of hearing but don?t let that fool you ? she chases squirrels and her dog sitter’s cat just fine, and they would tell you she gets around a little too well from their point of view.
Millie?s looking for a forever family who will adore her and that she can adore in return. Her ideal home will have a stay-at-home human who likes to take short walks and snuggle on the couch. She?s content following her human around the house. She has a bit of a problem with depth perception, which makes her a little fearful going down stairs, but she can run up the stairs plenty fast if she sees a kitty running in front of her! So she?d do better in a one level home or, if there are stairs, with humans who don’t mind carrying her up and down (she only weighs 14 pounds). Millie likes every human and every dog she mets, and could live with another dog who is OK with little dogs, or a dog-savvy cat who puts up her trying to play with it.
If you’re looking for a cute, sweet little dog that really deserves a good home and will be your loyal friend for life, please come meet Millie.
Millie qualifies for the Seniors for Seniors program: senior citizens or disabled adults with a ?Gold Card for Healthy Aging,? or a ?FLASH? card, issued by the City of Seattle, may adopt an older dog (at least six years old) at a special price ? there will be no fee for the adoption itself, and the licensing fee will be half-price!
