    Hi! My name is Lita, and I’m about 1.5 years old and 45 lbs. Some of my favorite things include treats, wrestling with my foster siblings, and catching flies that make it into the house!

    I’ve been working on sitting and waiting for my food, and I’ve got that down. Crate training is easy, since I get treats and Kongs in there! We’ve been going on these things called “”walks”” and I just want to GO! But my foster mom is slower than me so I’m working on walking at her speed.

    I’m a little nervous with sudden movements and grabbing by strangers until I grow to trust you, then the tables turn and I can’t get enough belly rubs! I’ve met tiny humans and am very gentle with them, as long as they respect my space. I’m good with dogs I know, but new dogs make me nervous at first.

    Even though I’ve been trying really hard not to, I still want to chase those fast little animals called “cats” so my foster mom says my furever home shouldn’t have any.

    I have a couple of ongoing medical issues that my humans are keeping an eye on, but you wouldn’t know it to look at me! I don’t have to take any medications right now and just need a good quality diet and exercise to keep me happy.

    If you’re looking for a playful girl to add to your pack, I’d love to meet you!
