ADOPTED 12-17-11 – UPDATE FROM THE FOSTER – We like to call her “Lizzie” for short. Lizzie is probably the smallest of all the littermates. She is such a sweetheart and it would tickle me to see her get a loving forever home.
Lizzie is a playful pup, but not hyperactive. She loves to be with her person, have her belly rubbed and snuggle. When she snuggles, she likes to bury her face into your body, generally the turn of my arm and waist. I think that it is a precious characteristic of hers.
Lizzy is independent and shows no signs of being skittish. She has these eyes that speak volumes! I love to look into them and wonder, just what is going on in that head of hers. She is somewhat uncertain about GOING UP the steps, but not down. So sometimes I have to encourage her up them. She is doing well with crate/house training, but since she is a young pup, she still has a few tee tee accidents if our running around in the kitchen. Generally, when crated, she will bark or whine to let you know she needs to go outside. I have two children, ages 11 and 8 and she loves to run and play with them. She shows no signs of food aggression or dominance. She is in the chewing stage, so chew toys are necessary and correction with the mouthing. She is pretty good about not doing it once you say, “no”. I also have other dogs, cats and chickens and she has embraced all of them well. Tex is my HUGE black lab and he and Lizzie are buddies. It’s funny to see such a large MALE dog, be so gentle and motherly to young pups.
We have taken a few baths and she is getting used to that. She feels more comfortable about it if you hold your hand on her chest while she rests her paws on your arm. Her fur is so easy to wash soap out of and she dries REALLY fast. That is so unusual for me. I have six dogs, all but two are short haired and it takes FOREVER to get the soap out of their fur. This was a blessed relief when I realized how easy she is to bathe.
PREVIOUS BIO – Hi my name is Elizabeth and I am being fostered in the same home as my brother Kyle. We both look kind of alike, but I am a bit more dainty and ladylike. I am a happy healthy puppy. I am soft and cuddly and I love to give kisses. I love to play, sleep and be near my people. I would love a family that has another dog or two for me to hang with and some kids to pal around with
Watch some short videos of all the pups at the vet’s office –
all are too cute for words…total fluffballs! 🙂
