Hi there! My name is Precious, and I live up to my name! I'm 9 years old, small at 35 pounds, very gentle in all my actions. I'm healthy, heartworm negative, up to date on all my vaccines, and just had my teeth cleaned. The doctor had to extract four teeth that were rotten, but I'm all healed so I can eat normally again.

I'm in a foster home with three other Dalmatians and I get along with all of them. I've greeted all the humans that I've met so far in a gentle, appropriate manner. While I don't mind being in a crate, I spend my nights sleeping in the living room on my "own" bed. I'm housebroken and I'm not destructive, so my foster mom trusts me completely. She keeps telling people that she doesn't understand why I was given up to the shelter because I am so "perfect."

While I enjoy being petted gently by kids and would not dream of hurting them, I'm getting up there in years. I'm looking for a quiet home with maybe some older kids that will understand that I'm more into watching TV and getting my ears rubbed than chasing tennis balls in the yard.

If you would enjoy the company of a smaller, more sedate Dal who doesn't demand very much beyond two meals a day--but would love to cuddle on a regular basis!--I hope you will apply for me. Mom says my bed can go with me when I leave here so I will have a familiar place to sleep. That's really nice because I really love my bed!
