Meet Aurora IV!

Introducing, Aurora IV, a delightful older female dog with a gentle spirit and loving nature. Aurora, a former stray, may be advanced in years but her zest for life remains undiminished. While she may not hear the world around her, her heart speaks volumes through her affectionate demeanor.

In terms of social skills, Aurora gets along well with other dogs. Aurora is leash and crate-trained, proving to be a model of canine manners. Despite her deafness, she navigates her world with confidence, enjoying strolls in the backyard and basking in the simple joys of life. Treats are Aurora’s weakness, and she delights in the occasional indulgence of her favorite snacks. As for toys, she’s content with the simple pleasures– cozy bed, a soft chew toy, and the company of those she holds dear.

Aurora’s best characteristics shine through in every wag of her tail and every gentle nuzzle. With her playful spirit and unwavering devotion, she’s sure to bring warmth and companionship to the lucky individual or family who opens their heart to her.
