Princess Leia - 5½ years old (Fostered in Summerville, SC)


I like long walks on the beach, but your neighborhood streets will do. My foster mom puts this silly harness thing on me, and I’m good to go! I have had a pretty narrow existence, so I’m learning about all the sights, sounds, and smells in the world around me.

I like people. All people. I’ve lived too much of my life not being part of a family, so I’m real eager to join a real family. I’m good with people of all sizes to be part of my family, as long as they’re okay with my snuggling and occasional face kisses. It would be great if there were other larger dogs in my family too, to help me settle in and know how to “dog”. Just not small creatures- if they’re the size of one of my toys, I’m probably too much for them. And I *sometimes* need a little time to get to know a dog before we can hang out and play together- I guess I’m a little gun shy because of my past. My foster mom says she’s working on socialization with me.

I know some cool tricks. Like chasing balls, running zoomies, and I even like to practice leaping when I’m out in the yard. I’m working on perfecting a jump where I change direction midair, thanks to my kidney bean wiggle.

I’ve got papers. Like real, registered ones. You can check out my fam if you bring me home! My health? The vet says it’s “astonishingly good” and “extraordinary”.

I’m sort of a big deal, which is why I sometimes protest when I’m crated. I go in just fine, but sometimes sing the song of my people if you’re being a big meanie and crating me while you are in another room of the house. If you leave, I settle down and chill until you get back. Then I’ll start up again as soon as you come in the door, so you feel guilty for leaving me. It’s all part of my master plan.
