When Luna Lou first arrived at BDAR, she was very fearful and would warn people away with snaps and growls for trying to touch her. We went to work trying to identify what might cause Luna's behavior.
We found and then cleared her ears of sharp grass seeds, and she is on pain meds for what we suspect is arthritis. As a result - she is a different pup! We can use the word pup - because she acts like one now! She runs, jumps, tries to 'play' with her friends, plays with balls, and tug of war and she no longer tries to bite when you touch her in certain areas!! YEAH little LUNA!
She goes for CALM walks off leash, comes when called and is too much of a lady to play fetch or tug of war. Nice gentle belly rubs are more her style.
And kisses... she is the best!
Luna gets along with other animals but is prone to jealousy and food guarding. So we are hoping for a home for her that will both love and adore, and set limits for her. Because she needs to be reminded to play nicely, we think Luna should go to a home with kids over 8 only so that all of the people in her life can recognize when she is making an error in judgment. All it takes to remind Luna Lou to share is a stern warning from her person. Luna will stay close to home - she wants to make sure you and your family will be safe!
She is very brave - unless you have a mean cat... she is scared of those! She won't jump on people or over fences, and digging is not considered lady like. A warm bed with snuggly blankets (she gets chilly), and someone that will never take her back to a shelter or give her away again (she has a gentle heart), are her most fervent desires! If you think this sweet girl would fit into your family, please make sure you have filled out your application!
As part of our December adoption promotion, Luna's adoption fee has been waived. Because she can take some time to warm up, we are offering an extended trial adoption for approved applicants.
