Bichon Frise
Female, 14 years old, 10 pounds
Graciela (aka Gracie) is the sweetest little thing! She will patiently allow you to pick her up and can meet just about any dog with no issues (other than quite a lot of eager excitement!) Gracie is clearly a dog who pines to be devoted to her human - she wants to know where you are and to be with you all around the house. She's the BEST snuggle buddy on the couch! Her foster mom says Gracie seems to be anxious when left alone, which may be related to adjusting to her new surroundings. This little pup is a perfect match for someone who is mostly at home and would like a devoted companion!

She loves having free access to a yard, and knows how to use a doggy door. If you are looking for an excuse to get fresh air and exercise, Gracie is what you need! She happily goes on 2 mile daily walks at a brisk pace. Because Gracie was hit by a car 3 years ago, she has just the slightest wiggle in her gait, but this does not slow her down. She does love to stop to smell the roses, too, and thinks she's a mighty hunter when she spots squirrels. Gracie's a bit too fond of chasing cats, so a kitty-free home is probably best for her. Gracie's foster says "she sure doesn't seem like a 14 year old dog to me - I hope I age as well as Gracie!" Maybe you two could age "gracefully" together?

Graciela came to us because her senior guardian's health is declining and she can no longer care for a dog.
