Lisa was a stray puppy who knocked on my door in poor condition. She was extremely skinny and covered by fleas. She might have suffered some kind of abuse, because she was easily frightened.
Three weeks after finding her, Lisa is at her normal weight (17 lbs. now), curious, happy and very playful. She lives with a 7 years-old child (with whom she is very patient), a male dog and two cats. She wants to play with the cats too, even though they don’t always understand her.
Lisa has been dewormed and will be fully vaccinated and spayed as soon as her veterinarian considers it timely. She is being house trained little by little.
Lisa loves to walk in the park and meet other dogs and new people. But what she loves and needs the most is a caring human friend by her side. She is the kind of dog that would love to be in your lap or in your arms, or simply lay down by you with her head against your leg. I would definitely keep Lisa if I weren’t already sharing my life with three other rescued animals. My life is also a bit hectic and I would like Lisa to have all the attention and love she so richly deserves.
