Bon jour! I am Livia, and I am a playful, happy gal who is looking for an active family that will enjoy a lifetime of adventure. Like many labs, I am an energetic lady and would thrive with patient humans who will work with me on training and play lots of fun games with me. My favorite activities include long walkies, playing outside (I would love a fenced yard at my forever home!), and soaking up all the love I can from my peoples. That's right: not only am I bundle of fun, but I am an affectionate, loving girl, too! I get along with other pups and like to play with them, but I can be protective of my toys and food so I would prefer to have alone time when enjoying my meals and toy time. I was also well mannered when I met a toddler, though I like to jump up and give hugs so any children should be old enough to understand and tolerate my excitement while I work on my manners. However, I would prefer a home with no cats, please! I am currently undergoing heartworm treatment and will need to be kept calm for a few weeks while I recover, so I hope you have lots of puzzle toys for me to work my brain and a comfy couch where we can cuddle together! I am a smart lady, too, and excited to see how much more I can learn in training classes with my forever family: I am potty trained, crate trained, and know a few commands including sit, touch, paw, and relax (lay down). I am eager to start my fun life with you, so hurry up and fill out an adoption application today!

If you'd like to adopt this dog, please get started by filling out a complete application (incomplete submissions cannot be sent.) Please note that while we take time to learn as much as we can about each dog in our care as possible, our bios are written from current observations. Though we do our best to share as much information as possible about each dog we care for, we are unable to make any guarantees on the future health or temperament of your adopted dog. Most dogs in our care come with unknown pre-rescue history, and information pertaining to breed and age are often educated guesses.
