Adopt Britney, 12 year old female labrador mix NY NY
Big fan of: Every person she meets, spending time lolling on the couch and sleeping in, being brushed and getting lots of strokes and cuddles.
Not a fan of: Seeing other dogs, pigeons or other small animals on walks—Britney barks at them.
Special features: As a couch-potato senior, Britney is an ideal companion for someone in search of a snuggle buddy—she’s ready to spend every evening by your side while you catch up on TV or crack open a good book. She has a very sweet disposition and a distinguished gray muzzle.
Other reasons she’s special: ASPCA Humane Law Enforcement Agents seized Britney from her owner last year. She suffers from arthritic changes in her back and elbows and ligament tears in both knees, but due to her age surgery is not an option. Britney takes arthritis medicine daily, and her adopter must continue this medication. She is eating hypoallergenic food at the moment, but this may be tapered off in the future.
Dream home: A six-and-up household without other animals where Britney can finally get the love and comfort she deserves.
