From the Foster:

Tootsie Roll is about the cutest little fluff on the block! She was recently found wandering the streets alone, and nobody ever claimed her. While she is older now, and her teeth are in really bad shape (she will be having a dental prior to adoption), she has lots of spunk (as to be expected for a noble weenie), seems pretty well adjusted, and we think she was loved by someone. Peoples reasons for letting them go we will never know, but we promised her we will take GREAT care of her until her FOREVER forever home finds her.

As she was a stray, Tootsie is NOT her known name, and we don't know what it was. It looks like she was shaved down semi-recently, so her coat isn't in prime condition, but it will get there! She seems potty trained, but will have accidents if you don't notice she is needing to go out. We haven't heard her make a single peep yet - she would be great for shared walls.

Dogs are good, cats are a-ok, and gentle kids should be fine. She is not a super snuggly dog, but she does want to be with you, and will follow you around. She will be a great companion to keep someone company, without needing too much exercise and training during her golden years! 

Tootsie Roll has been diagnosed with IVDD (intervertebral disc disease) which will require life long monitoring by your veterinarian. IVDD also has the potential to flare up and will require treatment during these episodes.
