Livvy was walking abnormally, so we took her to the vet and she indeed has hip dysplasia, requiring surgery (otherwise a healthy puppy).   She will be available in mid-September.

If you are interested in a foster-to-adopt situation, we would consider this, but she is going to be laid up for a while.  Once the right side is done, the left side needs to be done 🙁 .  Of course, we are paying for it.  If you are interested, please go to the website and complete the foster application and indicate you are applying for LIVVY.


MEET MISS LIVVY….a lucky “whatever she is” ~1 yr old, 12.2 lb, white and brown liver colored terrier, with a head that looks like a mini Aussie!  She does shed a little so she is probably not hypoallergenic.  Livvy escaped being bred by landing intact in the shelter.  Now, we know why a puppy was dumped in the shelter!  She was so frightened, they 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.  With us, she has been absolutely wonderful!  With a potential adopter at the shelter, she was not having it.  All they needed was patience because she is a WONDERFUL puppy.  We are socializing her and she is joyful!  We have her walking on a leash and wanting to meet and greet the neighbors and especially their dogs.  However, in the home she is very jealous of other dogs, so she wants to be your one and only!   She is skittish at first but with patience, she is a doll.

If you are looking for a playful, sweet, loving pup, Livvy is your girl.  She wants to go to a home where there her family who will dote on her.  Livvy will emit a soft, adorable howl if she is left alone, now that she has experienced love and company.  She seems to be pp pad trained but she loves her walks and likes to go out about 3-4 times a day.  She is very smart and we love her!  So will you!
