From the Foster:

Sprout came from Texas.  Her age is approximately 10-13 years old.  She loves to nap on your lap.  She loves to be close to her people.  She would love a single dog home or a home with other low energy seniors.  She is fearful of large, energetic dogs.  She tolerates but does not interact with other dogs and she does not play with toys.   She prefers a quiet environment.  Sprout is not aggressive towards dogs but when she feels threatened she will give a warning.

She enjoys short walks.  She must use a harness to avoid further damage to her collapsing trachea.  She tires after a walk of 10-15 minutes possibly due to a slightly enlarged heart.  She is very excited for her short walks.

Due to a number of her teeth being pulled her food needs to be soft.
She potties outside.  She needs to be pottied on a schedule of about 3-4 hours and has  no signal for when she needs to go potty. It is common for her to have one to two accidents a day.  She is able to go the night without having an accident.

She has recently had four benign mamory gland tumors removed.  The vet indicated that the chance of reoccurrence will be high.

She loves her people and will sit on a lap for a long as she can.  However, she does need to be carefully lifted due to a calcified vertebrae in her lower spine.

She is a smart girl.  It is clear that she came from a loving home.  She has been learning the layout of our home very quickly.

Sprout is a sweet, happy girl who just needs some extra TLC!
