Urgency: Munchies is a senior of nearly 12 years and has been in the shelter for 2 years. Our community prefers small, young dogs, so nearly 12 year old Munchies has a very small chance of adoption with us. Last year she developed skin allergy at the shelter (she was okay the first few months) which is manageable with fish/no grain diet and weekly medicated baths to relieve itching . It seems like she lost some weight in the last 3 months or so. For these reasons, we are actively seeking a rescue who can provide Munchies a temporary, more comfortable home and be in a position to find her a forever family who can love her in the remaining years of her life.

Other dogs: Munchies seems good with dogs in the shelter’s playgrounds (separated by fence). She is also relaxed with dogs in close proximity during walks to a park. She does especially well with one other particular dog, a Staffy Mix named Luna Lovegood, with whom she regularly plays in our parallel playgrounds (separated by fence). However, at home she might need slow, supervised introduction to multi-dog household. She was adopted briefly a year ago to a home with another large dog with whom she did very well during introduction at the shelter but unfortunately she wasn’t doing doing well with resident dog at home and she was returned just after few days after adoption. Thus we recommend Munchies being a single dog at first until she decompresses from stress of living in a shelter. Then she might be good in multi- dog household with slow, supervised introduction.

Cats: No. Does not do well with cats

Kids: Yes. She did well interacting at outreach / adoption events, she was gentle and respectful, gently taking treats and giving up toys

New people?: Friendly when meeting people?: Great with new people, all kinds of people! She's terrific with grooming and vet visits too.

What is the energy level? High to low?: Medium. She had a sleepover with one of the volunteers and was very easy going and low energy indoors but still is happy and bouncy on her walks

What issues does the dog need to work on such as excessive barking, toy/food aggression and other?: NONE

Is the dog housebroken? Unknown/possibly; she was an owner surrender living in a home, but she has been living in a shelter for nearly 2 years and would have to be introduced back to a potty schedule. Recent sleepover at volunteer's home-no accidents.

Crate or leash trained? Good on a leash

Knows basic commands?: Yes; basic

City: San Gabriel, CA. (Greater Los Angeles area)
