LADY

 

Hi! My name is Lady and I was surrendered to a shelter in Baton Rouge in March 2017 by my family of 8 years. From there, I found my way to GCCSR, and I'm really liking it here so far! 

I'm a tiny little thing, weighing in at about 12.5 pounds. I need to gain a couple of pounds, but my foster family said they're just the people to help me do this.  It took about 2 hours for them to boast about what a sweet, affectionate girl I am. I'm inquisitive, interested in my surroundings, and a shadow to everyone who will let me be.  I was also a very good girl at the vet, patient with them while they drew blood for my lab panel, and giving kisses once they were finished. I am known to run and try to get out of the fence when I'm bored, so it's important I be with a family who enjoys my company the way I enjoy theirs. 

How did I end up in rescue, you ask?  My first family turned me in because they said I didn't get along with the other dogs in their home, but also said I get along with other peoples' dogs. Thankfully, there was a foster home ready and waiting with no other dogs, so I am spending some time there. I have some mammary masses that need to be removed and I need to be spayed (that's why I developed the masses). The good news is that I'm already vaccinated and heartworm negative.  Once my medical issues are addressed, they tell me we'll work more on interactions with other dogs, just to make sure that I know how to approach them and not be afraid of them. From what my foster family has observed in the short time they've had me, once I get to know other dogs, I seem to be okay; it's just that the initial introductions make me nervous. Don't worry; we'll be working on this!!
