Lizzie is a quiet girl that rarely barks (unless she hears fireworks). She is crate trained and doing well with her housetraining. She is very energetic outside and loves to play. She loves to play fetch and loves anything that is shaped like a ball no matter what the size.
She gets along well with dogs but she's learning how to play since she never had much experience. She tends to love to wrestle when she plays and she is energetic so she might bowl over a small or frail dog. She has no food or toy aggression. She is not good with cats and sees them as something to chase.
She gets along wonderfully with children but she is an energetic puppy that is strong so I would not put her in a home with small children that could be knocked over or have their sandwiches stolen. Lizzie would benefit greatly from training. She is very smart and wants to please. She is learning not to jump up and has learned to sit nicely and wait for her tennis ball to be thrown.
Little Lizzie was brought in to Floyd County Animal Control with seven other other dogs. They found all 8 dogs tied up outside in a back yard. They were all incredibly friendly. The AC officers suspected that the sweet dogs were intended to be used as fight bait. Thank God they were rescued. They were taken to Animal Control where Lizzie stood out for her sweet personality.
