What kind of home would be best for me: Liberty gets along well with other dogs and could be a playmate and also could be an only dog. She does not need to be around very young children or somewhere with a lot of steps. At her age, she's past all that. She's looking for a retirement home.
What is my personality like: When Liberty was first rescued in July of this year, she was a stray found in New York. She was rescued by two of CPR's volunteers. Her coat was disgusting. There were even dead bugs stuck in it. Urine burns (probably from pain from laying in her own urine and not being able to get up) and in general, she had obviously had a harsh existence. Even a gentle hand raised to pet caused her to jump. Once she realized people were being kind to her, she become a low maintenance princess. She likes her walks once or twice a day and she likes her food. But she'll also get up and move from room to room with you.
She is not a big fan of cats. She co-existed with a cat but she nuisance barked at him if Liberty felt the cat was doing something she shouldn't (like jumping on the dining room table, that was sure to get barks).
How do I act when I first meet new people: Friendly but a bit uncertain.
Tips and Tidbits: Est birthdate is 7/2010. Liberty and Fanny came from the same home and like each other very much. Their family called them the golden girls.
Liberty, despite her bad hips, was known to once jump a 4' fence. She was very scared and had just gotten to her new home and it was a surprise to everyone. It has not happened again. Fortunately, she's not that fast!
House trained: Dogs can be house trained if they are in the right environment and are allowed to follow a schedule as long as a physical reason doesn't keep them from being trained. A dog house trained in my home may not be in yours. We will help you teach your new dog this necessary skill and based on your schedule.
Please note - we do not ship or transport our dogs. If you are interested in adopting a dog, take a look at the distance between the dog's location and your location and make sure you are able to make the trip.
Thank you for your interest in a dog who needs a new home. This description contains all that we currently know about this dog. We have no perfect dogs - but many of our dogs have proven to be perfect for a certain someone. We urge all of our potential adopters not to fall in love with a picture. When screening applications, we look at the entire home and then make suggestions based on what would be a good fit for your home. You are not being screened for a specific dog although we are looking to see what type of dog interests you - poodles or non poodles, age, temperament, personality, etc. Our goal is to match you with the best possible pet for you and your home. We want to create furever families.
