This sweet senior gal sat in her crate at the Georgia shelter, waiting for someone to love after her owner fell ill and could no longer care for the dog they’d had since she was a puppy. Tinkerbelle is now here with EHR and in a wonderful, quiet foster home, helping her to feel safe again.
Tink is housetrained and pad trained. At 17 pounds, she's a little overweight, probably because she was fed a lot of table food at the end. Having lived as an only dog for 13yrs, she is starting to adjust to sharing the home with a furry foster sister. She does need to be fed separately from other dogs because Tink doesn't like to share, but otherwise she does get along with a canine companion who knows how to give her space. She also would do better if any other dog in the home is larger and fairly laid back. Tink walks pretty well on a leash and enjoys sitting in laps to be pet. She also enjoys playing fetch with her toys. Stairs, along with jumping up on or down off of furniture, can be a major challenge because of Tink’s short legs and extra weight.
Tink would do well in an quiet home with just one or two adults, or possibly older teen aged children. She gets stressed with the energy and sound of young kids. Tink could be appropriate as a companion for the elderly, as long as her physical limitations are taken into consideration. She would need to be carried up and down staircases with more than one or two steps.
