Floppy is part lab/doberman mix (we assume). She was taken from her mother at 3 weeks old and then later dropped off at our door at about 8/9months old. She is a year and half old and needs to a good home (of course as do all). She has had no luck at all finding her a home. She is UTD on vaccinations and spayed. Can you help? Wont you please consider giving the girl a home
She loves playing with our two rescues, 15lb Large Yorkie and 40lb Mutt. She plays GREAT with the little Yorkie - very gentle and loving (she even hugs him). She loves to run and spin in circles, she loves being right on top of / next to / close to her caregiver/s. She LOVES food and milk bones and treats - not fussy about food at all.
She was taken from her mother at the age of 3 weeks old. Was carried around like a baby until she was too big to carry, then she was basically abandoned - left alone by the child who took her from her mother and litter mates. There was a breaking and entering / home invasion / robbery when Floppy was home, it was stated that she and the other dog present were very traumatized by the experience but no one knows exactly what was done to the two dogs - they found them locked up in a closet.
Floppy is a big girl, she weights 85 lbs now. She was dropped off at my home by the child who took her from her litter mates because his grandmother / caregiver said the dog had to go.
Floppy has many quirks, most are adorable and cute but the big one - lack of confidence / awareness and coupled with difficulty in taking cues from handler when insecure, afraid, excited. She is very aware and capable of following instruction in general but when she sees / 'feels' something new and strange to her she gets very excited - hair stands up, she may bark, she might pull on the lead and overall is un-able to listen to handler. It is at times very difficult. She is getting much better and has made big headway in this but it is still an issue and possibly would be for her new owners.
An ideal owner for Floppy is someone with a lot of love and patience and someone able to handle a large dog. She would probably do very well where there is land to run, a country dog. She is VERY loving to myself, my husband, our two dogs and adults who visit she quite quickly comes to love and be affectionate to but she still does not respond like a normal dog to house guests. She gets crazy for a bit but then eventually settles down and treats guest like they are a part of the family.
We never let her around children because we are too afraid. But that does not mean she would not be good with children. Her first owner was a child. We just do not feel confident enough in her to take a chance.
I have put together a small website of Floppy which you can post and share:
