Nickname: Lizzo. Lizard. Lizzy so busy. Elizabeth when I’m in trouble.

Approximate age / Weight: 1 year old and 40 lbs.

Oh, hello (drops toy). I didn’t hear you there. Sorry. That’s not true. With these ears I hear everything! Sometimes I just choose not to listen (wink). Don’t worry. It’s probably just a phase. My foster mom says its because I’m a teenager. Can you see me rolling my eyes?

Anyways. At times I can be a bit of a handful but I currently live with other dogs and I find them rather annoying. I just need some space of my own to nosh on a bone, gaze out the front window, play with all my toys and snuggle with a human. Is that too much to ask?

I’m super smart – aced basic training, exuberant about life in general, totally photogenic, like to watch TV (Wheel of Fortune and golf), and would like to live with human adults who fill my Kong toys with yummy treats (stock up on peanut butter now), teach me lots of new things, let me cuddle hard with them on the couch, and help me be the best girl I can be.

Forever Home: I like my daily routine with a few sides of mental stimulation (food puzzle, training tricks) as well as some physical activity to keep me on the straight-and-narrow. In return, you’ll be on the receiving end of the best darn bully snuggles this side of the Mississippi!

Our dedicated volunteers rescue, rehabilitate, foster, and re-home all breeds of homeless dogs from area shelters or as owner-surrenders. Waggin' Tails is supported solely through donations and fund-raising efforts. Our volunteers receive no monetary payment for their activities. Instead, their reward is the knowledge that a dog's life has been saved that otherwise would have been lost.
