Miss Evie Rocket is 1.5 years old, and you would never guess based on her personality that she had a rough start in life, as she is a bubbly, happy, playful, friendly girl. But she did, and it’s part of her story. Evie was attacked by two adult German Shepherds and then abandoned at the shelter, where she was stuck in medical isolation with a huge cast on her arm. The general public couldn’t see her, but luckily, Love Leo Animal Rescue did and they quickly put together a plan to get her out of danger and save her life. Evie has healed well, and proven to have a happy, fun-loving demeanor, and is currently seeking her forever someones. Evie (also known as Little Bits or Little Miss) has never met a stranger, neither dog or human. She literally loves everyone. She gets excited about other dogs and wants to meet and know them immediately. She is sassy, incredibly smart, agile, active (but can also nap and snuggle well), confident, curious, and a little naughty, like a typical pup. Evie can not catch a treat or a ball to save her life, but she is crate and house trained. And although she can be strong on the leash, she’s working on it with her fosters. She will really thrive in a home with another dog to mentor, guide, and play with her, and in a home with structure, who will give her boundaries with rotations of play / exercise time, crate down time, and enrichment (toys, puzzle, treats). Because she can play well with toys (medium chewer) and naps well, she is really quite easy if you provide the structure. If you don’t, she’ll play all day 24 / 7 and just run amuck. Evie could be great at agility when she’s older, as that would feed her need for physical and mental stimulation. But, she could also just go for a nice, long walk and maybe have a monitored play session followed by a nap. She may be a good candidate for a therapy dog when she gets through her puppy stage. Evie knows some basics commands, and is a great candidate for group training classes. She has a delicate stature, about 50 lbs, and has a gorgeous brindle blue and tan coat with white markings, stunning light jade-green eyes, and the cutest, perkiest ears that telegraph her mood (they usually read curious or ready to play). Evie is such a sweet girl with people, and makes everyone smile with her light-spirited personality. She can play a bit rough with her home dogs, so it’s important for her to be guided by her humans and canine siblings. Evie is really a wonderful girl and she is impossible not to love!
Meatloaf is Big Love. Meatloaf just wants a happy place to play a little, love a little, and nap a little. He once had a loving family, but lost it due to unfortunate circumstances. He is sweet and happy-go-lucky with both human and dog friends. Meatloaf likes polite interactions and slow integration. After he gets to know you, he is your best buddy for life. Fan of plush toys, yummy treats, and goofing around.
Livvy is a sweet girl who wants so badly to find a pack she fits into perfectly. In the house, she is calm and enjoys belly scratches and ear scratches. She loves to run around her yard and play with her favorite people and toys. She particularly enjoys rope toys, and is an expert at dismantling many types of other toys! Her favorite treat is Kraft Singles, which is how she gets her allergy meds every day. She has some environmental and food allergies that are manageable through diet and daily medication.
Livvy loves to visit her friends at The Zen Dog training facility in LA, where she has been working with the team on some fear-based reactivity. Given a calm, structured environment, Livvy has made great progress on her training! We are looking for a household or family that can reinforce and continue this training, with the support of the rescue.
Livvy enjoys spending time with her humans, and children too! She prefers to be the only dog in the home so she can alert you to any strange noises outside ;) She also enjoys the simple things in life, like getting toweled off after a nice bath.
Livvy is 5 years old, 72 pounds, and ready for her forever home!
