“Hi! My name is Faith and I am in need of an adoptive home and SOON! My person describes me as “an amazing, loving, calm dog who is friendly to everyone she meets!”.

“I was adopted almost 7 years ago from a shelter in Florida. I was a youngster then but I’d already lost my leg. No one remembers how, heck, I don’t even remember what happened but for the most part it didn’t slow me down through my youth.

“I am now about 8 years old, which is by no means ancient!  I am a trim 34 pounds. It is important for us tri-pawds to stay trim because we have one less leg to carry ourselves around on. People say I have an interesting, exotic look to me, my breed mix is “your guess is as good as mine!”.

“I have lived with other dogs in the past and I do prefer the older dogs to young ones. Because I’m on 3 legs, I don’t want to worry about hyper energy! A friendly old dog might be good company to have.  I wouldn’t mind being an only dog but I know those homes can be hard to find. I have been good with cats and children who are gentle.

“Once I move and settle in, I imagine I can be fine staying home without an issue. I don’t have a problem with that now but I have had the same human for a very long time. We did the move to Washington because she needed help for her own health. It is sad that now she can no longer care for me. Her hope is to find someone who will love me and give me the lifelong care and home I need. Just please keep in mind all dogs should be shown patience and compassion when we are rehomed.

“I have arthritis and the vet told my human I will need something to help my joints and joint pain. I hear there are a lot of options and am hopeful my new human will be able to provide something for me. Just because I have arthritis doesn’t mean I can’t take walks! I love my walks and I am a good girl on leash. My human tells me I will see new places and new smells in my new home, that sure sounds nice. Stairs are difficult so I’d rather not have a home with them, unless you can carry me up and down them, probably best not to go there. I can manage quite a few hours between potty breaks, that’s helpful, right?

“My human has been trying to find a good person to adopt me. She says people only want puppies! But why would you want that when you can have an older dog who already knows how to be loyal and understands what people need in a dog?

“If you are looking for a new best friend, I could be the one for you! I am loving and cuddly. I am ready to start my new life with someone who will appreciate the companionship I have to offer for the rest of my days!”

Faith is located in Edgewood, WA. For contact information please email: referrals@olddoghaven.org
