Hi, my name’s Heidi! I came from animal control to Mostly Mutts in bad shape. I had several unaddressed medical issues – heart issues, upper respiratory infection, in need of a dental cleaning, a polyp & mammary masses. I’m also hard of hearing but glad it’s improved a little since being rescued! Thanks to the folks at Mostly Mutts, my great foster family, good vet care & the Grey Muzzle Organization, I am on =the mend & long or short, I look forward to spending my later years in a loving home that all dogs deserve!

• OTHER DOGS/CATS/KIDS: I may be a bit too much ‘in your face & attention hog’ for some dogs & since I can’t hear very well, I don’t understand warning from other dogs, so if you have a patient dog that won’t mind my ‘what’s a boundary’ & ‘that’s my person’, we can meet. I like to be the dog in charge. The dog in my foster home is a saint & very tolerant of me. / I didn’t get along well with the cats in one of my foster homes, so I should not live with them. / I enjoy the company of the 6-year-old who visits my foster home, & I met a 10 year old at Mostly Mutts that I liked, so gentle kids around those ages could be good. Let’s meet!

• PERSONALITY/ENERGY LEVEL: My life sure has turned around since being rescued & though I have medical challenges, I am a super sweet, curious, & affectionate girl. I am not super playful & would rather just out with my people – a true lap dog! I do tend to want to claim most of the attention from my people & am not very open to sharing it with other dogs. / My energy level is 4-6, & my foster said that I tend to match my person’s energy level, though due to my heart condition, it cannot be high.

• SKILLS/CRATE/POTTY: Since I am hard of hearing foster sometimes uses hand signals to let me know what she wants or when I need redirecting. Gentle touches & small leash tugs seem to do the trick and my fosters will be happy to tell you about the hand signals. I should never be off leash as I don’t hear passing cars & may not hear my name being called. / I do NOT like the crate & will bark or howl for a long while to register my displeasure with it. Therefore, a condo or apartment would not be a good fit for me. My temp. foster let me sleep in her bed & that was wonderful – I even slept longer than in my regular foster home. Maybe you’d like me to sleep in bed with you? / My potty manners have been good in my foster home. I am on a heart medicine that makes me thirsty, so a good let out schedule (every 3-4 hours) is key to my potty skill success.

• LIKES/DISLIKES: I love my people & want to be wherever they are. I am up with the sun & enjoy following them around. I will chill with you on the couch as long as you want, & I love being under a blanket! I also love being rubbed & loved on! My walks are nice, but we don’t make them too long, due to my heart condition, but it is still nice to be out & about with my people. I can be a bit zig-zaggy on my leash, so watch your step & I may not be a good fit for anyone who is a fall risk. / I hate to be left alone, so a stay-at-home or work-from-home family member would suit me quite well. I am also uncomfortable with having my paws touched. Otherwise, I’m sure I wouldn’t like it if I didn’t get the love & attention on which I thrive!

• MEDICAL: I'm current on vaccinations, micro-chipped & spayed. I also needed a good dental cleaning which I received thanks to a grant from The Grey Muzzle Organization! I had 3 teeth pulled & was already missing some front bottom teeth, but I have most of my back & top teeth & can eat just fine! I have a heart murmur that has improved on 2 medications which I will need to stay on for life & have been diagnosed with cardiomyopathy & am on medication for that as well as an important water pill. I’m eating a low salt food which the vet prescribed, & I take an over-the-counter joint supplement to make my joints feel their best, as I have a luxating patella – not uncommon with smaller dogs & anti-inflammatory/pain medication which I should stay on. The vet did not want to remove the mammary mass due to my age, etc. but they think it's benign, so that’s good. I have an old, healed injury to my hip, but it doesn’t bother me too much.

I am looking for a loving home, long or short, with a wonderful family! My adoption fee is $100.00. I’m located in Kennesaw, Ga.
