Sweet Adeline's puppy dog eyes can melt even the hardest of hearts! Adeline is the absolute gentlest, most charming old lady around. She has the most soulful eyes, which you'll learn fast, as she likes to watch you from wherever she's perched. She doesn't want you to know she's watching though, so she turns it into a game of hide-and-seek!

As she's an old lady, she does sleep a lot but she runs in her sleep if she's super comfortable and will even sleep bark! She loves food, and nothing gets her moving faster than a cookie or her food bowl. Be careful though, she's smart, and will try to trick you into giving her treats with her puppy dog eyes!

Adeline is a pretty easy dog to have around the house. She seems potty trained, and will send out a "bat signal to let you know it's time to let her out! She'll walk over to the door and if you don't notice her doing it, she'll walk up to you and politely make her presence known until you take her out. She's very food motivated, so any other training would be a breeze! She walks super well on a leash and never pulls. She does well alone as long as she's got food, water, and somewhere comfy to lay her head.

Adeline does have some arthritis in her hips, but doesn't let it stop her from going about her day! It takes her a bit to get moving sometimes, but once she is, she gets some pep to her step! She would prefer to live in a home without stairs or laminate floors to help her hips but is happy anywhere as long as she has the support to get her going when she's a little stiff. It seems she has done well with dogs in the past and could go home with a well-matched doggie sibling.

Adeline would make a mellow, loving companion and wonderful quarantine buddy. Come meet her today!
