Lizzie is a stray who was found along with Cody and Rex, they came together for safety and companionship.
Lizzie has had a terrible time as a stray, having been rounded up twice by the dog catchers, the first time she escaped and ran, the second time they beat her so badly she was heavily bleeding and very battered (see pictures in her album of the day she was rescued).
Lizzie is understandably was not overly confident around new people, men especially, and has become much more confident generally however she will require patient adopters who will allow her a little more time to adjust to new surroundings and situations. Despite her shyness she is so willing to trust and love again that we cannot wait to find her the perfect home.
Lizzie was previously a very submissive dog, usually the last to eat, however in her foster home environment Lizzie has had a few issues with Cora, resulting in the two having to be seperated. As such we feel Lizzie would be best as an only dog, certainly we think she will be happier not having to share the love and affections of her new humans. If there are dogs within the home already they must be laid back and submissive. We are unsure how Lizzie is around cats, therefore would suggest a cat free home for her as a preference.
Wee are looking to place Lizzie in a child free home, children who visit infrequently would be okay, however she would prefer a quiet child free home.
Like all our dogs, Lizzie would not only benefit from but will be required to attend a formal training class within 3 months of arrival. She will require introductions to all things in the home as its unlikely she has been a house dog before. There will be toilet training to some degree, she will require to be introduced to and walked on a harness and lead also.
Lizzie has so much to offer the right family. Do you have the time, patience and love to offer her? If so please complete the adoption application and someone will contact you
If you would like to be a doggy sponsor then please see How You Can Help for further details. All our dogs love toys and treats and would welcome these from our Amazon Wishlist.
