ADOPTED ON 10-15-14 – The woods at night are a dark scary place where you can hear sounds but can’t see in front of you. Imagine a child under the age of seven in the woods trying to survive. If you have never been in the country where there are no lights from the street or a home, you can’t imagine how creepy that can be. Add to that Louisiana is home to a wide variety of wild animals that inhabit its wetlands, forests and swamps. Black widow spiders, snakes, alligators, fire ants, bears, wolves, coyotes, panthers, wild pigs and chiggers that are barely visible to the naked eye but have six legs are just some of the creatures in the night that are looking for food. There are also many different species of birds, hawks, eagles, and owls that can swoop down and grab a small dog very quickly. This is what these dogs have to endure and only about a third are picked up by animal control, a rescue or a kind soul that takes them in.
Lydia is young, healthy and one of the lucky dogs that Animal Control picked up in June of 2014. She went to a loving foster home in the south that tenderly cleaned her up and took care her till she felt safe and secure. Our southern fosters and their family work tirelessly day and night and are with the dogs till they are adopted. She is described by her loving southern foster who watches over her every need as “a sweet and loving medium frame dog who responds well to instructions or correction; she fit right in without any hesitation. She is lively and playful at times and a typical couch potato other times. She loves her kiddie swimming pool and playing chase with the other dogs. She will make a great addition to any family.”
Lydia also loves kids of all ages and enjoys playing with them. She is a young female that is very happy and has the kindest spirit that stands out above all the rest. She gets along excellent with other dogs, is not real friendly with cats but with training, supervision and the right family, she can adjust. She plays great with the other dogs both large and small dogs; and even though she loves life and is very lively, yet she is not rambunctious and unruly. Simply put she is a great natured sweet dog.
Lydia is a nice size, 35 lbs and has a moderate energy level. Moderate exercise and playtime will be sufficient. She is fearless and will let your neighbors know that she is there but does not bark excessively; she has no issues, eats well, and rides great in the car and REMAINS SEATEDJ). She will go in the crate, walks fine on the lease and has no known fears. With her adorably cute personality – Lydia will make someone a great dog. Just add love, training and quality time together. She is looking for a forever home – could that home be YOURS????
