Meet sweet deaf senior dog Lauren who is looking for a loving forever home with someone who will cherish her and always keep her safe.

From her advocate: This sweet senior gal Lauren is an estimated 8 years old and about 34 pounds. She came into the shelter as a stray in August of this year and we would love to see her spend her retirement years in a home, not our crowded shelter. We believe she is deaf, and we KNOW she loves walks, naps in the sun, and gentle ear scratches.

She has been treated for some skin and ear issues during her stay at the shelter, and our vets are closely monitoring a couple of dermal masses. We have had her out to playgroup, and while she was able to hang out in the yard with other dogs, she preferred to keep to herself rather than play. We have no information about her with cats or kids, but she is a staff and volunteer favorite. She is a bit fearful at first (and we don’t blame her), but once she warms up, she is a wonderful companion.
