Livvy is studying for her Canine Good Citizen testing and may go through therapy dog training.
She's come a long way since arriving in rescue. You see, Livvy suffered a broken shoulder before coming into rescue, we are not sure how, but it self healed. As the limb basically dangled, though, it caused permanent nerve damage. It doesn't bother Livvy, she has feeling in it and limited use of her right front leg - she can move very fast when motivated (squirrel patrol!).
The vet recently recommended Glucosamine supplement on a daily basis. At about 9 years old, she is showing some signs of age and having 3 good legs.
She is a very sweet dog and loves people. She does well in a crate and can be left alone during a workday for 6 to 8 hours a day. However, Livvy, has to be the only pet in the home. She's not dog or cat friendly. We recommend an adults only home. She walks well on a leash and is easy to handle. Livvy is up to date on vet care and waiting for a forever home, is it yours?
