MEET MISS LIVVY… a lucky “whatever she is” 2 yr old, 12.2 lb, white and brown liver colored Teripoo!  She would love nothing more than to sit next to you and get belly rubs all day long. This does not mean she is without energy! She loves playing fetch and gets bursts of energy that take her running around the house entertaining herself. She is very obedient and wants to please. She seems house-trained too, but we never guarantee!

She does shed a little, so she is probably not hypoallergenic.  We found out why a youngster was dumped in the shelter — hip dysplasia saved her life!  She was so frightened, Shelter gave her to us!  Poor thing, never had a haircut or handling or love :(.  Not the typical dog LHH takes, but she wasn’t getting out without help.  She was walking abnormally, so we took her to the vet and she indeed had hip dysplasia, requiring surgery (otherwise healthy).  She has had surgery on both hips, is good as new and she is available!!  We have NO IDEA why she hasn’t been adopted!! 

Livvy is SWEETNESS OVERLOAD!  All you need is a little patience, because she is a very loving puppy. Livvy’s fosters have noted that she is a little wary of new people and things, but she has gotten so much better.  SHe is is jealous of other dogs in the home, so she should be your one and only!   We think she would be better in a home with older kids over 12 or without kids.  She needs to get used to quick movements, which still scare her.

If you are looking for a playful, loving pup to dote on, Livvy is your girl!  She does well when left alone if she has spent some time in that environment.  She loves her walks!  She is very sweet and smart, and we love her!  So will you!
