Lovely Lizzie looking for love! Hi there! I am a soulful, submissive young princess who would thrive with a family who will help me blossom into the confident lass I am meant to be! I was found as a stray in Texas, so I am quickly learning what being adored and pampered with people who love me feels like. I can be shy at first, but I open up quickly and want to have fun. I feel especially confident around other dogs and like to follow them around to learn, so I would do best in a home with a canine companion that can show me the ropes of my new life.

Other than playing with my doggie friends, I have discovered that playing with rope toys and bones is super fun! I would do best with older children who understand that I might need time to overcome my shyness, and believe I could be fine with kitty cats if you have one - I got to meet a kitty recently at FTF during a cat test, and my human friends think I had never met one before; once I got over my initial confusion at what she was, I was friendly and interested in being pals. As a young dog, I still have a lot to learn so my adopters will need to sign me up for training classes. I am working hard on potty and crate training, but ask for patience and guidance while I continue to master these skills. Are you the loving, kind person who could provide me with the happy life of my dreams? I hope so, and I hope you fill out an adoption application soon!

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.
