Lia is a one-year-old, Staffordshire Terrier and Labrador Retriever mix, weighing fifty-four pounds. We are guessing at the breed of this exceptionally sweet one year old who we rescued skeletal-like, starving. Lia has come a long way, looks great and feels good. She just wants to be close, to be near you always so who has someone home during the day would be ideal. Lia was likely severely abused and seeks affection. Abrupt and loud movements can scare Lia, so she needs a gentle calm home. "Lia has the kind of expression in her eyes that draws you in. It's as if she is trying to tell you something all the time." Lia is great with people (older kids are fine). Lia is dog selective and absolutely not good with small dogs. If you have a dog her size a trial introduction will be required. Lia is housetrained. If you have a fenced yard Lia likes to spend time supervised in the yard. Apply at crisisdogsnc.org. We reply only to completed applications, no calls, no emails. Excellent vet references and a virtual home visit required. Your prior or current dog must be on year-round heartworm prevention. We prefer a fenced yard, but this is not required for all of our dogs. We transport by land or air whenever possible.
