Meet Melon! She’s a functionally blind senior with very low hearing ability. She loves to chill in your lap (or next to you) at all times. Her other favorite things are mealtime, snacks, snuggling, and snoozing in her heated bed. Her happiest place seems to be in her papoose. (she might be a little spoiled in her foster home).

But make no mistake: she’s a pistol! Her doctor says she is “vigorous” for her age … and we agree! She stomps around demanding attention if she thinks you are neglecting her or if it’s close to mealtime.

She knows outside is for potty and will go right away when you take her out, but she doesn’t ask to go out. Also, when she wakes up from her snoozing, she can’t see if you are home so she barks to ask if anyone is there. She will call out until you answer by touching her. So, she would do best in a home with a stay-at-home parent who can spend time with her during the day, make her feel safe with touch and interaction since she sees and hears minimally, and take her out on a regular schedule. She does fine with other animals (ignores them!).
