Lizzie was a stray who joined us in 2014 along with her companions from the street Cody and Rex. Poor Lizzie had a terrible time as a stray and was rounded up not once but twice by the dog catchers and very badly beaten up the second time.
Lizzie has previously been a very shy dog, but through time and socialisation with people she is now much more confident. We are looking for patient adopters, with experience of street dogs in particular, who ma be able to take their time with Lizzie and allow her a little more time to adjust to new surroundings and situations. Despite her previous shyness she is so willing to trust and love again that we cannot wait to find her the perfect home.
Lizzie has previously resource guarded food around other dogs, which is not unusual. She now has no issues, however care must be taken around other dogs as she settles in her new home. Lizzie would prefer to be an only dog to and 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 - ideally a male dog as generally Lizzie has been happier around them. We are unsure how Lizzie is around cats, therefore would suggest a cat free home for her as a preference.
We are looking to place Lizzie in a child free home or with teenage children only, children who visit infrequently would be okay, however she would prefer a quieter 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. Lizzie is very clean in her foster home, however a little toilet training may be required as she settles. 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
