“Hi there! I’m Dollie, a 13 year old Jack Russell Terrier. I am in search of an adoptive home after losing my longtime person and home.  Extended family took me in when my person passed away. I appreciate them so much but now I’m ready for an adopter ready to make a lifelong commitment to me!

“Currently I’m a little on the chubby side, I weigh 24 pounds now but my goal weight is between 18-20 pounds. I’d love to find a home with someone who will take me for daily walks. I can walk up to 45 minutes around the neighborhood. That could help me shed those pounds! I behave well on leash so we can enjoy our time outdoors. My joints can get a little achy after my walk so it’d be nice to have some joint support to keep me going.

“I have lived peacefully with other dogs and back in the day, I lived on a farm with horses. I have never seen a cat so I can’t tell you how I would react to one of those. Since my farm days I settled into the ‘burbs and enjoy lap time or taking naps on the couch or a chair. I have good house manners, needing to go out about every few hours. I do take a medication called Incurin for urine leakage. Keep me on that and I should do just fine. Of course being a senior dog, I will need regular check ups just to keep up on maintaining my health.

“I used to make my person smile all of the time. I do this fun trick where I sit up and that makes people laugh. I love balls and toys to play with and have learned how to give myself a good rub on my back with my ball or toy. When you wake up in the morning, I greet you with a happiness. I’ve heard people call me “delightful”, I like to think that means someone would want to keep me around forever!

“Kids age 10 and up are great. They know to be nice and enjoy my company. Not much makes me cranky though I don’t appreciate too high of energy in the house as it can make me a little unsure. I will bark to announce a visitor’s arrival. Most of the time I find a nice place to hang out either inside the house or out in the fenced yard. When you have time to sit and relax, I’ll be there to keep you company. If I sound like the gal you’ve been looking for, let’s meet!”
