My story

LUZ: 2yo, 30lb female spayed shepherd mix

Please Note: We cannot guarantee breed mix or age. Both are an educated guess.

Personality: Luz is a very loving and likes belly rubs, and she is very athletic and enjoys hikes and running outdoors. She gets nervous and reactive around new people or places, so intros should be taken extremely slowly until she is ready to come to you, and then she bonds closely with her person as she gets comfy. Luz is great with other dogs (she likes being the wingwoman to a confident resident dog), fully house-trained and crate-trained, and this homebody is happiest just cuddled up with her person. Luz would do best with a family who will go at her pace as she starts feeling more secure... she needs adept and calm owners with rescue experience who are competent with training and behavioral correction.

Home Recommendation: A hectic home with lots of guests will not be a good fit, and Luz is working on her fear response when others enter the home since she is protective of her family. Luz has nipped the legs of guests exiting her foster home, so she may need to be kept separately from new visitors and receive correction until she adjusts to them. Luz would do best with a quiet home.

More about this rescue

BARRK LI was created by Kristina Howley after many years of working with many wonderful groups in the animal rescue industry. Most recently my work with SNARR Animal Rescue Northeast has encouraged me to begin a new chapter of rescue focusing on the NYACC abandoned and "at risk" shelter dogs. While I will continue to help and support SNARR NE for the wonderful work they do, I am excited and hopeful to roll out BARRKLI to help even more dogs in the NY shelters and those in other area shelters of dire need. My initial goal is to build a small team of support for the local NYACC shelter dogs and eventually expand to help as many dogs as I can. One thing I have learned over the many years in rescue, is that the most successful rescuers have accepted that we can't save them all but the ones we do save we certainly can give our all too. My motto is and will continue to be "one dog at a time". And for that one dog, may his/her life be changed forever
