     ~14 yr old, 11 lb Cairn Terrier (Mix?) SPAYED FEMALE for ADOPTION  “Daylight is coming And shadows are gone Keep it a mystery 'Till night's coming on” – Elton John   Meet Mystery – SF Bay Area of CA   Mystery is a ~14 yr old, 11 lb Cairn Terrier Mix who joins us from @SJAS where she was surrendered for euthanasia   She is spayed, microchipped, vaccinated, free of parasites and will be having a dental cleaning in a few weeks +/- any needed extractions   When she was surrendered, she was INFESTED with fleas to the point that it caused hairloss and those have now been treated. She will need monthly flea preventative which should be a given and we should not have to say that but apparently we do. Her hairloss should resolve with good diet and she is already feeling SO much better   Her senior labs were excellent for a dog of her age (she is possibly younger).   She takes a very cheap medication for arthritis that runs around $5/month and will come with a several month supply and prescriptions to take to the pharmacy of your choice with refills good for one year at your cost.   (Many of our senior dogs are on arthritis meds because just like people over the age of 40 often have aches and pains, so do dogs. "Not treating" is not the same as "not needing" for all of the people who constantly ask us why our dogs are on arthritis meds when many other shelter/rescue dogs are not.)   Her foster mom says this about her   “Mystery is one of the sweetest dogs you will meet. She is 14 years old and is an absolute angel. Once she warms up, which does not take long, she is a total companion dog. My partner and I absolutely love her.   She does great with other dogs and even gets a little playful and excited around them. She’s really cute to watch. Overall, she appears happy lounging and taking naps and she really enjoys being next to her owner and other dogs. When she’s on walks and sees other dogs she is friendly and wags her tail. She did not bother the cats at our vet clinic   In terms of behavior and training, she is a perfect dog. She walks well on her leash, is potty trained, and minimally barks. She also rides well in the car. She is one of the easiest dogs we have ever fostered.   She is fine in a crate but does not seem to need one   She has a few spots that appear sensitive and she will let you know. Her fur appears to be growing back from some medical issues and she is a bit itchy. She’s currently on some itch relief shampoo. Overall, she has adjusted very well to our home”   She is fostered in the SF Bay Area of CA and will only be available locally for foster-to-adopt for the next month (through 7/25/21) while she is waiting for her dental UNLESS you are willing to come to us to adopt her and take care of her dental at your vet at your expense.   After that, we will adopt her to people willing to come to us to adopt for 30 days (through 8/25/21). If she has not been adopted by then, we will consider out-of-area transports as we can usually transport to major US airports for flexible adopters willing to work with the volunteer flight attendants who escort them in-cabin on STANDBY flights in their spare time.   If you would like to adopt please send a THOROUGH email that mentions DETAILS FROM THIS BIO to beourpet@gmail.com   If you cannot adopt, but would like to make a tax-deductible (EIN 45-4103375) towards this pet's care please do so on this post (if this is an option) or by one of these   www.paypal.me/UOH Zelle beourpet@gmail.com Venmo umbrellaof-hoperescue   You can also buy Umbrella of Hope merchandise where you not only advertise our cause with cute clothes, but the proceeds also benefit our medical fund — at tinyurl.com/pineappletee   We have an Etsy store where all proceeds benefit our medical fund at https://www.etsy.com/shop/Umbrellaofhope   Amazon Wish List https://a.co/2sALMwd   Please spread this dog around in order to help them find a home.
