Matilda in Oregon

Looking for a Home


Hello, my name is Matilda!

Waltzing sounds like fun to me, as that gives me one on one time with my human. I am a very healthy 9 year old purebred Silky Terrier. I weigh 10 pounds and recently lost my "senior" owner. Before my "Mom" passed, she had told family members she wanted them to find me a good home, where I could be "special". They are really nice but they agree with five dogs in the house, it's just not fair as I am not use to sharing the attention. I like to sleep in bed, go for nature walks in the woods, curl up on my owners lap to watch T.V., or read a good book. Everyone says I am very sweet and happy. (Too true, after all EVERYONE can't be wrong!)

Matilda functions beautifully with her cataracts. Matilda adjusts to new situations quickly, and she has excellent house manners. She loves to go outside in a fenced yard, and will go on a walk happily at any time. Her temperament is calm and she is very "tuned in" to her owner. Her favorite thing is to be on her persons lap and be scratched, with one finger on her chest. She would be best in a single adult home, and preferably where she is the only dog. Matilda is being fostered and placed by family members.

Matilda is spayed and up to date on her shots, though her rabies shot is coming due soon.

If you are interested in adopting Matilda, please contact Paula at Please note that if you are interested in Matilda, you will be dealing directly with her owner's family. We won't be involved in the arrangements that you make, as she is not in our rescue program, and we have neither seen nor evaluated her.
