Once you have had a wonderful dog, a life without one, is a life diminished.

Hi, my name’s Snowflake and I like naps, being pet, food, and more naps (in that order). Being an 8 year old basset/lab mix, I have the perfect temperament and activity level for a laid back home that appreciates the finer things in life, like a nice dog bed in the sun. I enjoy walks, but I like to take my time and usually don’t go much longer than about a mile. I prefer to let you lead the way and will happily trot at your heels. My foster mom was very impressed that I never pulled, even when I saw a bunny, and sometimes we go outside without a leash. I definitely don’t need a harness, and will happily lope around in the yard but am not a marathoner. I know how good I’m going to have it as part of your family; I’m not a flight risk! Being a mature lady, I don’t like all that rough-housing that other dogs and puppies get into, I know my responsibility is to follow you around the house in case you feel the need to pet me or scratch my belly. I would probably be best in a home where I’m the only dog, or where the other animals also appreciate my mellowness. I am great around human kids in small doses, but haven’t had to live with them 24/7 yet; they may be a little overwhelming sometimes if I can’t find a quiet place to go be by myself. I’m not too interested in toys, except for a few stuffed animals that I consider my puppies. I surround myself with them before I go to bed at night so I can keep them safe.  I can keep you safe too if you give me a chance! Please meet me and let me show you what a good girl I am!

 I am current on my vaccinations, HW negative, spayed, and micro chipped.

 Love always,
