Happy Gotcha Day. Lightening is a 4-5 years old lady. Her owners were moving away when they found out she was heartworm positive. Not knowing what to do they wanted to put her down. The vet who saw her thought that she deserves to live so they took ownership of the dog and they asked us to find her a new home. Lightening was HW treated and she is now completely recovered and as good as new. She is very sweet, easy going, and completely housebroken. She gets along great with other dogs too.
UPDATE FROM FOSTER MOM: Lightning LOVES her car rides and walks. She likes to ride up front and sits like a person. She is perfect on the leash during jogs/runs and trots right along beside me. If we’re just walking, she will pull if she sees something interesting like another dog, but we’re working on learning she can’t say hi to everyone! She takes treats out of your hand very nicely (see video) which is great if you have little kids. She follows me from room to room and loves being petted, but if you ignore her, she just goes and lays down somewhere. She “asks for permission” to get on the furniture so I think it’s easy to keep her off if you don’t dogs on the furniture. She loves to play fetch and will run all around when we’re outside, but she’s very calm inside. She knows sit, down, and shake, but she’s better at listening inside the house when there aren’t lots of distractions.
