Top of the Morning to ya, My name is Lady or as my foster sister calls me Ma’lady and my awesome foster Mama found me as a stray. I REALLY love kids. My little foster bother is just under 2 and he lays on me and cuddles with me all the time. I like to lick his face. I enjoy my cuddle time with the humans. I share a household with 2 other dogs. I wasn’t too nice at the beginning and I was very uncomfortable, but you see I had this injury to my right shoulder, and it made me limp and caused sores. Now that I went through surgery to have it amputated and its healed, I have warmed up to my doggy roommates. Ones even a puppy who does not care where he walks but it does not bother me. My foster Mama says I am an absolute loveable dog and I have overcome a lot of obstacles. She thinks that I could use some more training with basic commands like, and leash etiquette. I like squirrels and get excited about them and try to take off after them forgetting that I have this human attached to me. My foster Mom has taught me that playing with other dogs and toys is fun and that I do not have to try to fend anyone off. She taught me that I can in fact let go of a ball and still get to play with it. She also showed me these things called bones! Do you know what they are?? I do and I do not like letting go of them. I will for a treat though! She says that I need someone who is going to understand that I have 3 legs and sometimes my situation is different then dogs with 4. I potty outside, I whine and nudge you and act weird when I must go outside to go potty. After every car ride, I must go potty and foster mom knows that, so we plan extra time. I love having my kennel open to me. Its my safe space, I sleep comfortably in there at nighttime with no problem. However, whenever my humans leave me, I get very vocal so I probably should live in an apartment as neighbors may not adore that side of me. I like doggy companions, but I need slow introductions because I'm not sure what to think of the other doggy until I get to know them. I really enjoy playing and running in circles. I’m actually faster than the 4-legged dogs in this house, I love to be active, but I go both ways. I can sleep all day on my foster mom’s lap while she works then when she is off, we play tug a war my foster brother and sister, we go outside in the snow. I am a very loyal and protective pup. I watch over the house and do not really care for rando’s walking by the house. However, When I am out on daily runs to drop the kiddos off at daycare, I love saying hi and getting petted by other people.Lady's adoption fee is $375 which covers her spay, vaccinations, microchip and any additional medical care she may have needed while in the rescue’s care. We are a foster based rescue, we do not house dogs at a facility. Age and breed, are NLR's best guess as we often don't know who or what mom and dad are.
