Dorothy and Rose are senior girls that were surrendered in one of our Oregon shelters together with the loss of the mom and decline in health of their dad.  They were in pretty rough shape when they got to us and are doing great under the care of Adria.  The following notes are from Adira "Dorothy is very sweet, likes to be cuddled.  She is partially blind, but gets around very well.  She has a healthy appetite and knows exactly where her potty pads are.  She know how to go outside and potty on command.  She does not seem to have any health concerns other than the partial blindness and some old age mobility aches and pains.  Rosie who is a bit bigger and younger.  She is a lot more adventurous and enjoys wandering around the yard finding every water feature,  She has a great appetite and follows around the house.  she is going up and down the stairs and knows how to potty outside and does a pretty good job finding her potty pads."

09/15 update from Adria - "The golden girls are both adjusting to life as fosters and are doing great.  Dorothy, Goosie to me, is the slightly older girl, blind in one eye and toothless, gets around very well.  She eats well and continues to be in good health, other than a slight eye infection which we have her on meds for.  The doc guesses her to be around 14 rather than the initial shelter guess of 18.  she is super sweet and affectionate.  She doesn't mind going for car rides and walks on a leash pretty well.

Rose, sweetie as I call her, continues to be the adventurous one.  She enjoys wandering around the back yard and knows our routine very well.  She runs up and down the stair and trots around the house very well.   I would guess her to be 12 or 13, rather than the 16 year shelter guess.

Both are starting to look like real poodles now that their hair is coming in.  they are super fluffy and very cute.  The are both really sweet dogs and a joy to be around.  They get along with the other dogs very well and love to cuddle!"
