Hello! My name isArethaand I would love to meet you!


Aretha is a gentle giant who loves all people and will greet you with a smile. Her favorite activities include short walks, car rides, destroying squeakers and napping on the couch. She is good with cats but can be a little picky on her canine friends. Aretha is great when she has a routine but due to her age she does wear a diaper at night and when you are gone in case she has an accident. She prefers free roam of the house while you are gone and is not destructive. She does have former injuries to her knees and is on a joint supplement along with pain meds and does best on carpeted floors and very few stairs. Aretha is looking for a calm, loving home to live our her retirement years.
