I have nothing but incredible things to say about this Survivor….. My sweet little Lady Bug loves to explore the outside world but doesn’t need a lot of exercise. She is ok with 3 x 15 minutes. Ideally she would love to retire in a backyard where she can chase those fluffy squirrels and bunnies or relax in the sun. She has the best time during her river walks and mini hikes. I recently introduced her to snow for the very first time and she absolutely loves it. She has good recall if she has had a little exercise. Lady knows her name and you will get her attention if you call her. She understands no, will “sit & lay down”, “come & go” entirely by hand signals-not voice commands. Well behaved in home and on car rides.

She spends her time snoozing next to me in her bed or lays in her kennel. She feels safe there.

She is a big time cuddler and loves affection; she will give you little kisses in return. Lady is low energy and really eager to please her human. She does not jump up on furniture unless invited. Lady spends her afternoons snoozing in her doggy bed next to me. She is kennel trained and feels comfort in her crate. She certainly has never had an accident in her kennel or in the home. She is great with all humans, even the little ones (kids).

Due to her really abusive past Lady does not do well with other animals in the home. She is animal selective on walks but is easily redirected. She has been to the vet weekly for her chemo treatments and has been at close range with numerous dogs and did fantastic. She understands not all dogs are bad but would rather keep her space from them. She walks really well on her leash but does love to chase bunnies and squirrels and may pull a little when she sees them. She does forget about them if you change direction or assertively pass them. She is “food” motivated so if you keep a treat with you on the walks she can be easily distracted with those until she gains your trust and takes your lead…

Lady would be happiest with someone that has a calmer lifestyle, someone that can spend a little time giving her direction and unconditional love. A quiet retirement home with a little yard to call her very own.
