Hache (better known as Hattie) will follow you around the house all day so she can be close to you.  She loves meeting new people and new dogs and eats up all the attention.

We were concerned at first that she would have a hard time adapting to a new home (as some older dogs do), but I'm pretty sure she could know someone for 5 minutes and be ready to go home with them.  She is just ready to get love and attention from anyone she meets!  She loves going for car rides and has multiple volunteers (including myself) ready to travel if necessary to find her a perfect forever home.

No fence? No problem!  She has gotten the nickname "The perfect off-leash dog" since she can't run fast and you could easily catch up to her at a jogging speed.  She usually just follows you at a walking pace, but don't let her fool you, if she sees a cat or a chicken, you better put on your jogging shoes!

Her wobbly walk is adorable but she's working hard on fixing it and is getting stronger every day.  She's sticking to her New Year's Resolution by dieting and exercising so she can follow her new forever family on their adventures.  Let her spend some of the day sitting on the porch or lying in the yard and she will be happy as a clam!

Her "Help Em Up" harness is perfect for helping her feel secure walking up and down short staircases.  She does most of the work herself, but needs a little bit of weight held up by her back harness while walking upstairs.  She would prefer having a home where she can stay on the main level and avoid large staircases and extremely slippery floors.

She had surgery for mammary tumors that were benign.  Her vet information states lumbosacral-disease which makes it difficult for her to walk any distance.  She has a wheelchair she can use, however, she prefers to walk without it and has loved going on shaded trail walks through the woods.  On days that she's feeling good and its not in the mid 90s, she has walked half a mile or more on her own down the path (check out the video for a clip or our walk!)

She doesn't love swimming (or getting wet in general), but it is great hydrotherapy for her and she walks much better afterwards.  Speaking of water, she is the easiest dog to bathe and even groom! She will just lie down the whole time and patiently waits while she gets her nails trimmed, but a good brushing is her favorite by far!

She couldn't care less about toys, sticks, or chewing up anything in your home.  Just give her lots of love, care, and treats and she'll be smiling all day!
