About Luna (Independent Adoption)
Please Note: The below information is from Luna's current owner. Luna is NOT an SSRR dog. She is posted here as a courtesy to her owner. Please contact Kathryn at firstname.lastname@example.org if you are interested in adopting her. SSRR has no information on Clover, other than what is here on her profile.
Luna was adopted from the local animal shelter last year. We believe she was used for breeding and we think she may have been abused.
She's a big goofy girl but we have no idea how she is around kids. Therefore, she cannot go to a home with children. She lives with a cat and they get along well. She does not care for little dogs but seems to want to play with dogs her size. I really think she'd like another big companion to play with.
She needs leash training because she will pull when she sees other big dogs. She loves car rides, is housebroken and knows a few commands. She mostly sleeps but needs to be walked and loves to play with her toys.
Sometimes she yelps if you move too quickly around her. We think she may have been abused in the past and is scared of being hurt. She also yelps sometimes when she's changed positions, from standing to laying or vice versa. The vet cannot find any cause for this yelping.
I want to keep her but my husband and I are divorcing. I work 13 hour shifts about 4 days a week. It's just not fair to have an animal if you're never home. My husband is unwilling to keep her after the divorce. Therefore, I am trying to re-home her.
Apart from the odd occasional yelping, Luna gets REALLY itchy if you don't stay on top of her flea medicine. She has a tiny growth on her right lower eye lid and that sometimes makes her eye watery. Her vet said the growth does not need to be removed so I just monitor it from time to time. Otherwise, she's a healthy girl.
As far as temperament, she will protect the house if someone knocks or rings the doorbell. She has growled at our pest control technician before but I think she sensed my discomfort. She's never snapped or bitten anyone. She generally likes any company that we have over, especially if she can be the center of attention.
She does growl at the cat if he approaches her bowl while she's eating (which he loves to do) but it's never more than a growl.
