altADOPTED! Tasha is a wonderful dog in her autumn years and deserves a great home to live out her life. She has been well trained, is quiet and alert, and no trouble at all. She is quite the social butterfly when it comes to visiting and meeting new people.  She is a happy and confident dog with the most amazingly soft coat. Tasha LOVES going for walks and sniffing around. When she sees the leash, she starts bouncing and skipping around the room. Another favorite thing of hers is to roll around on her back in the grass. Tasha has the personality of a dog much younger than her 12+ years. 

Sasha does have a bad knee and is on medication to help her knee pain. Tasha was rescued with this condition. Although her pain is being managed, she is not otherwise being treated for her knee issue.

Happy Tails Pet Sanctuary is giving her a warm and loving foster home until her health declines. Tasha is mostly deaf and can't hear voices but she follows hand signals very well. Tasha may be an older girl with aches and pains, but she's not ready for hospice yet! Tasha is currently in a foster home with several cats and does just fine with them. She is the only dog at her foster home. However, our goal is to find a loving home for Tasha to call her own. She is a very special girl and deserves the best.
