Rebecca Craig: Get well Lizzie. Glenda Olszowy: You are in good hands, Lizzie. Get Well soon!

Our sweet Lizzie is looking for a very special family to help her overcome her difficult past and feel secure, comfortable, and loved.

Before she came to us, Lizzie had been on the run for a long time, and it took many weeks for her rescuers to capture her and bring her to safety.

Lizzie is about four years old and lives with a wonderful foster family who has been working with her for the past six months, teaching her to trust humans and to accept attention and affection from them. A confident canine sibling who can show Lizzie the ropes and help her feel comfortable in her new home is a must. Lizzie loves to play with the other dogs in her foster home and has learned how to use the doggie door when she needs to go outside. Lizzie does well in a crate but prefers her dog bed. Recently, she started to learn how nice it can be to share a comfy human bed with her foster mom!

She needs a fenced-in yard and must wear a secure harness and collar at all times. Her foster mom also recommends a GPS collar as we know from experience that Lizzie would not be easy to find if she accidentally got loose.

Lizzie is still learning how to feel safe in the world and barks at strangers and anything that she finds threatening in hopes of keeping them at bay. She will not directly approach people at first; she tends to run and hide. Her foster mom recommends leaving her on a leash in the house so she can be easily caught. Once she feels safe, she is a sweet girl that accepts love and attention.

Lizzie’s new family must be prepared to allow her all of the time she needs to feel comfortable in her new home. Her foster mom thinks this could take months or even longer, but she feels confident that if Lizzie is given enough time, she will blossom into a wonderful, loving companion.

NOTE: Dogs may be located in any of our six volunteer states (WI, IL, IN, OH, PA, MI).
