Adoption Fee: $400.00
Liv is approximately 7 years old and weighs 80 lbs. She came to GRRACE from a shelter after being found as a stray and is believed to be a former breeding dog.. It is clear that she had never lived in a house, been on a leash, used stairs or become accustomed to riding in a car. But Liv is a smart girl and quickly learned how to do all of those things.
Unlike a lot of breeder dogs Liv isn't timid or shy. In fact, she's got quite a lot of sass! She is not a picky eater and has never had any stomach problems. She has a beautiful shiny, soft red coat.
Liv is housebroken. She doesn't always signal when she needs to go out but she doesn't have a problem going hours without going outside. She has never been crated and she is fine having the full run of the house and hasn't exhibited any destructive behaior and is well behaved when left alone. (we watch on camera). She rides well in the car but needs some assistance getting in.
Liv gets along great with her furry foster siblings and shows no food or toy aggression. The dogs in her foster home are a 7 year old male golden and a 5 year old female Chihuahua mix and she gets along with them amazing. Liv can be dog selective and has shown some initial aggression towards young males. A slow and proper introduction is essential when meeting another dog or dogs. She has not been exposed to cats.
She will pull on the leash if not walked daily and when encountering other dogs. She also walks better when she is the only dog. She does still require some work on her leash manners.
She loves attention and affection and seeks it out. She is the perfect combination of being your shadow while also giving you space and being an independent dog. She doesn't beg for food and we have never heard her whine. She loves to snuggle on the couch or bed with you but is also content when this is not allowed or is not the right time.
Liv is a great dog and he will make a great addition to the right family.
