This is Lulu, and you guys, she is FANTASTIC. She is some sort of little hound mix and she’s super submissive and just rolls over for tummy rubs all the time. Photo evidence provided.
She is 6.5 yrs old and she has a bad case of heartworms that she’s healing up from at the moment. Because of this, she can go for short walks, but she’ll never be your running companion. She’s been in foster care since January, and is just about ready to find her forever home (waiting on one final x-ray for a clean bill of health).
This girl likes things calm. She probably shouldn’t live in an apartment or townhouse as she likes to alert you (by barking) when she hears noises. She likes other (calm) dogs and kids, but due to her huntress nature outdoors, the foster is thinking cats might be a bad idea. She walks well on a leash and loves car rides. And really? She’s kind of hilarious with all the rolling over for belly rubs.
If you’d like more information on how to adopt this sweetie, reach out to Wags and Whiskers and let them know! They can give you much more information — she’s just not posted online as they are waiting for medical clearance.
About this project
For the next month, I’ll feature photos on my blog, my instagram and my facebook feeds that focus on dogs who need homes. These are dogs currently in foster homes, waiting for their forever family. They are amazing pups who will melt your hearts — some are hard to adopt because they are pit bull mixes (the sweetest dogs ever who cannot help their strength) or they have lived on the streets for a long time and are covered in scars or they might be blind or deaf (or both). Some are simply hard to get adopted because they are black, which is the dumbest reason ever. But each dog that has come into my studio in the last few weeks for photos has had a warm heart and wanted nothing more than love. Wouldn’t it be great if one of you could provide that? I hope so. To see all the dogs featured so far, look here.
