Doris is a foxy young lady who is not letting her recent hard luck story get her down. Little Doris was probably once someone's perfect companion, but now that she is older and has health concerns, she was just abandoned on the streets. Found as a stray, Doris was more than happy to be rescued and given a new hair cut :)
Doris is extremely sweet, very snuggly, and full of zest! We are guessing she is around 7 years old, but she may be younger...She acts like a puppy! Doris loves to travel and would make a perfect companion animal. She is small enough to fit in a bag and she loves going places with her foster mom.
Doris is looking for a very special new owner who will be able to manage her medical needs- Doris has been diagnosed with Intestinal Bowel Disease and Protein-Losing Entheropathy (PLE)...the vet describes her condition as similar to Crohn's disease in humans. With the right balance of medication and diet, Doris will live a very happy life and have plenty of years ahead!! Although she is older and has some medical needs, she is an amazing pup who will make a wonderful companion to some lucky person :)
If you have questions about Doris please contact Shelter Chic
We are a unique rescue, aiming to appeal to people who typically buy from pet stores and breeders. We want to promote adoption in a positive and fun way. We have the same goal as other shelters- to find homeless dogs and cats their forever homes, but we want to change the stigma some people have towards shelters and its animals by creating a chic place that people will want to go to.
We are always on the lookout for animal lovers who are interested in fostering our pets. Please contact us if you would like to assist us with this or other volunteer opportunities.
