Let's dance! My name is Lydia, and I am an energetic furball of love who would thrive with an active family that is ready for fun. I am eager to be your exercise buddy and join you on long walks. I also adore playing with other dogs, and would do best with a canine companion who is as playful and active as me. Given my exuberant energy, I think kiddos in my forever family should be a little older so they can keep up with me. It would also be a big bonus if my forever home had a fenced yard where I can run zoomies and play to my heart's content. I am a young girl with some remaining puppy antics and need an adopter who is patient and will put in the work to train me so I can learn everything I missed out on in my baby days as a stray in Texas. I am mostly potty trained, but am still working on my crate training skills and basic commands. I think training classes sound like an awesome, fun time and am excited to put my big brains to the test! If a little lady with a big personality sounds like the dream best furry friend for you, I hope you fill out an adoption application; I cannot wait to start our lifetime of fun and adventure!

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.
