Description: 
Hello everyone. My name is Lydia. I was found at the shelter, and boy was I scared. Only I know how I ended up being there. I am about 12 years old, have been spayed and all up to date on my shots. They took some of my blood and said I am heartworm negative, and my liver and kidney function looks good. I am on heartworm preventative now. I also had a dental and they pulled two of my eight teeth. I have been on antibiotics for nearly a month to take care of all the infection in my mouth. They found a slight heart murmur - not uncommon in a dog my age. I also have the beginning of cateracts, but they are a long way from affecting my vision. I am 100% housetrained, I have mastered the doggie door and can run out whenever I need to. I am good with the other dogs, and just ignore the cats. I snooze most of my day, and sleep with my Mom in her bed at night. I bark sometimes, and guard the back fence. Mom thinks I don't hear top well - Lydia has a $100 adoption fee. An adoption application, references and home visit are all required. If you would like to sponsor Lydia on her stay in rescue we would sure appreciate it.
