Liz Lemon 22 Co-Pilot

Hi Everyone!

My name is Liz Lemon and I can’t wait to meet you! I have been hanging out with my foster mom and dad. I am enjoying my staycay with my foster brother, sister and these other small fur critters that foster mom says are cats. While on my staycay, I have enjoyed going out for walks with mom and my foster sibs. The smells are really cool! My absolute favorite thing is just being near foster mom. If foster mom moves, so do I. You know, since I retired my hearing has gotten very bad and let me tell you it is scary to not be able to hear. I still manage to enjoy life, but I really don’t like being alone anymore. Staycations are loads of fun but I hope to settle in to my retirement home really soon. Do you have a spot for me?

That’s All for Now,
Liz Lemon

Liz is a great dog! Liz is also easy going and is good with calm dogs and cats. Because of her hearing loss, small children or an active household would not be a good fit. Once she settles into your routine Liz is calm. Liz is very focused on her people and is very responsive to human movements and hand signals. Liz is trustworthy and does much better left to move around in her home. 

The ideal home for Liz comes with a retiree or two that are home most of the time. Also, at least one calm dog is required to help lessen Liz’s anxiety when her humans can’t be around. Liz does need frequent bathroom breaks due to her age.
