Friday Foster Dog
I met the coolest foster dog yesterday. It would be criminal if I didn’t share her and try to find her a home. I wanted to take her home with me, but y’all know I can’t right now. You’re going to fall head over heels in love with her, just like I did. And one of you is going to decide she belongs in your home. Her name is Liza. Liza the foster dog is a Bull Terrier.
Here’s what Liza’s foster mom has to say about her:
Housebroken, doesn’t chew stuff, not a big barker, likes to sleep in, has been great with the cats. Really sweet, funny, silly potato-dog. Spayed, microchipped, UTD on vax and heartworm prevention. I haven’t seen any aggression from her at all, and you know how crowded my house is.
‘Tis true. My friend, this foster dog mom, has a houseful of dogs and cats. Liza is calm, laid back. She’s also about five years old, the vet thinks.
Liza in a Past Life
We know a little about Liza and her past life just from her body. Her teats are enlarged but shrinking, making her for a breeding Bull Terrier. Her coat was in awful condition, but now that she’s lived with my friend for awhile, she’s healthy and glossy. She had bumps which were removed – all benign. But now she is spayed and treated and healthy and happy. I think Liza is just happy to get three squares, affection and a bed. Word has it that Liza was an escape artist (she was on the lost and found site multiple times, and would run from the people who found her), but foster dog mom says she has never tried to escape her home. She loves being with her people and other dogs and cats.
Liza loves Jones Natural Chews. But she didn’t snap the treats out of my hand. She took them like a lady. And while she was gnawing on a bone, I petted her head and patted her flank. She didn’t even acknowledge my existence (as it should be – Jones should be the focal point for any dog, yes?). Her foster mom took the bone and she didn’t even blink. Just let her. Good dog.
Funny story – one of the foster dog mom’s other rescues is a runner. I gather this dog is annoying, refusing to return and having to be chased down every time it escapes. I’d given my friend some Jones Natural Chews taffies last time I was there and she tracked the dog while carrying taffies. My friend says the dog took one whiff of the Jones chews and followed her all the way home like a good dog, no leash, no more running. Jones Natural Chews are magical, people. Magical.
If you’re anywhere near Tulsa – an hour to three away and willing to meet me halfway – and want to adopt this dog, let me know in the comments. We’ll talk, and get the ball rolling. My friend will require a reference from your veterinarian. There’s an adoption fee, covering the spaying, vaccinations, etc. You know you want this beauty. I know I do.
