Leia is one resilient approx., two-year-old lab mix. People are drawn to her beauty, big heart, her curious presence and they often ask to give her a hug. She is not a shy girl and is always ready to oblige all huggers. Leia is 64 pounds and has a white coat with apricot markings, and dark soulful eyes. She has a unique laid-back perkiness! Loves people of all ages and dogs too and she is sure that everyone loves her back. Most anywhere that Leia goes she makes herself at home very quickly. She needs a family that has patience, can follow a routine and will love her unconditionally. Leia is house broken, and crate trained, but it is best not to crate her for long periods of time. She will do best with a family that has a stay-at-home parent most of the day. She is a wonderful and loving companion and loves to follow her human around, enjoys fetching, and cuddle time on the couch. Leia is delighted when you get her leash out in hopes of going places, meeting new friends, and is a perfect car rider. She would love a fur sibling about her own size to play, wrestle, and hang out with. A fenced in yard would be best in order for her to explore, and play. Leia’s zest for life is seen in the joy she exudes when she finds a tennis ball or when you ask her if she wants to go out, invite her to cuddle or offer her food (another favorite thing). Her happy, positive and loving attitude has gotten her through some tough times; she and her sister were picked up starving and taken to a kill shelter, we rescued them both and helped them overcome medical obstacles. After her adoption poor Leia had to battle yet another obstacle, she developed seizures from an oral preventative and she rejoined Southern Skies. She is currently on anti-seizure medication. We have been working on finding the right combinations of medications to control her seizures. She has been progressing and we are working towards reducing her medications. Leia has the strength and desire to live and enjoy life, she will make you smile all day long. Leia has been fully vetted; spayed, up to date on all vaccines, heart worm tested negative and placed on prevention plus microchipped.
