Tinkerbell is a lovely senior lady who loves car rides, naps in the recliner and cuddling with her people.

For being blind, Tinkerbell's pretty independent when not wanting love; when she's tired of following her person around like an adorable little shadow, she's able to find her bed just fine on her own and have a nap. But this super sweet senior does usually want love and enjoys being in your lap more than anything. She adores being near her people and is also very friendly when meeting strangers. And she loves treats!

While Tinkerbell is an incontinent old lady and can't hold her urine, she does great with wearing diapers and is also crate-trained. She's good with children and similarly mellow dogs and would thrive in a low key household with plenty of available laps.

Tinkerbell is looking for a home with someone who can stay with her most of the day, maybe someone who works from home or a retiree. In return, she promises to be the most loving companion she can be. Come meet her!
