AUSTIN, TX: Where-oh-where are you, my friend? Princess Paloma is having a very hard time getting adopted. A very, very hard time. She is 9 years old, a quiet companion, and a very easy dog in the home. Sadly, this is her 4th post on SSD and she's been bounced between the shelter and different foster homes for the last year. We didn't think she'd have *this* hard of a time catching the eye of a serious adopter, but we remain determined to help her find her match! PLEASE SHARE! 🐶🐶🐶 Austin Pets Alive! wrote, "Paloma is one of those dogs who makes a big impression on everyone she meets. She's a quiet companion, content to nap, cuddle and enjoy belly rubs. While Paloma thrives in the home, she does very poorly in the shelter and she deteriorates quickly. Her volunteer friends have given her as many sleepovers as possible to keep her out of the shelter environment while they search for her forever family.
Paloma’s manners are impeccable. She knows not to go in the kitchen while you’re eating, not to go upstairs and she doesn’t bark at anything (except cats sometimes!). It's like Paloma just understands all of this innately. Paloma is housebroken and doesn't need to be crated, although she is crate trained and can be left alone for hours. She is a very easy dog to have at home.
She needs a forever home without other animals or children (older teens may be okay) and one that is low traffic. She is sensitive to loud noises and prefers a calm environment. She can be shy with new people, but warms up very quickly, especially when offered treats.
Paloma also has a cancerous tumor on her leg that has been deemed inoperable. Fortunately, she doesn’t require any special medication or care, and it hasn’t slowed down Paloma too much. She loves going on long, slow walks and likes to meet new people while out walking.
Paloma may not be the right fit for everyone but that special home where she will thrive will be rewarded with an extraordinarily affectionate, well-behaved and playful companion."
