Turi is a pretty pomeranian girl who weighs about 7 pounds. She is guessed to be between 10 and 11 years old. Turi’s former person was an elderly woman with dementia. She had a rough go of it until a kind veterinarian stepped in and offered to care for Turi until an adopter could be found for her. As we see often in small breeds, Turi has a collapsing trachea. She takes a steroid to help with this along with eye drops as needed when her allergies act up. The vet who has been caring for Turi is happy to explain all of this to potential adopters. Turi can go overnight without needing to relieve herself. During the day she will use potty pads if necessary.

She has been living with other dogs and cats and done well with both. It is not known how Turi will react to children so the thought is because of her size, a home with kids 12 and older would be best. She does fine on leash and does not require a lot of exercise. Stairs are not easy for Turi to manage so a home without any or home with someone who is willing to tote the little doll around would be best. Turi is a wonderful, happy, companion dog. She loves to “tag along” on car rides and she’s very well behaved. Currently she spends her days with people and other dogs. It would be nice to find a home for her with someone who does not work full time or can perhaps take her to work so she is not left alone for long hours? Thanks to the kindness and care of the vet and staff, Turi is now ready for the next chapter of her life. Might that be with you?

Turi is currently in Snohomish, WA.

ODH has not met this dog; we urge prospective adopters to do their own evaluation.
