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 someone who works from home would be ideal. She was likely severely abused and is very needy and seeks affection. But if you try to pick her up, she will cringe in fear, even after months in foster. Her foster writes: "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." While Lia is great with people (older kids are fine) she is dog -selective (likes some dogs not others) so we recommend her as your only dog. Please be aware, Hounds require daily exercise and mental stimulation. Lia is not fully housetrained, so she requires a walk every few hours. If you have a fenced yard Lia would be happy to run around as she wishes. Her foster says, "All Lia wants is for you to love her and tell her it's all right." Apply on CrisisDogsNC.org. We reply only to completed applications, no calls. Excellent vet reference and virtual home visit required. Your prior or current dog must be on year-round heartworm prevention. We prefer fenced yard, but this is not required for all our dogs. We transport by land or air whenever possible.
