Lindsay’s family moved from the country to the city and she started losing weight. The family thought it was from the move. They surrendered her in order for her to find an appropriate family.
Our vet diagnosed her with EPI, an enzyme deficiency preventing her from absorbing the nutrients she needs from her food. Now with an enzyme powder added to her food (a mixture of canned and dry), she has regained some of her lost weight. She still needs to gain 5-10 more pounds. She’s microchipped, up to date on all her shots, and MDR1 gene normal. She is healing from her recent spay surgery.
Lindsay is a 2 year old active young lady. She knows sit and comes when called. She loves humans and wants nothing more than to snuggle with someone for ear scratches and chin rubs. She is learning not to jump on people for attention. She will get on the furniture, but knows off means to get down immediately.
She loves kids, although she is exuberant when she has someone to play, so older kids would be best. Lindsay is crate trained and house trained. She does sing to you if left in her crate when the household is doing something she can’t see. Lindsey walks well on a leash and rides in a car quietly. She is fast and has pushed out a door behind her foster mom on garbage detail. She stayed in the neighborhood and returned after a gallop across a couple of neighbors’ yards. She would benefit from a fenced yard.
Lindsay is not a big fan of other dogs. She gets along fine with the furry residents at her foster home, as long as they aren’t getting attention from her foster mom. Then the green eye monster takes over and Lindsay starts an argument. Lots of snarling and barking, but so far no injuries. For this reason, she would probably do best as an only dog.
Lindsay is being fostered in KY.
