Luna Belle is about 6 years old and is an Aussie mix out of Alabama. She joined TDL in April but has been recovering with TDL Volunteer Rachel until she was ready for adoption.

Luna comes to us from a hoarding situation. She lived with many other animals, was underweight, and had lost fur due to a flea allergy. Luckily with a little TLC her fur is back and she has put on a few pounds. She was also heartworm positive but has already undergone treatment and from here she has a few antibiotics and her regular preventatives (no other special measures). She will continue to test light positive for heartworm for a while longer, but that should fade soon.

Luna is an awesome girl. She is house broken, crate trained, good on a leash, very polite (no jumping up from this girl) and is not an “over-barker”. She may give a woof if she sees something very strange but the average things of life (cars, mailman etc) don’t really phase her. She has 2 more classes at Petco and then she will get her first obedience certificate (Yey Luna!!!).

Luna would do best as an only dog, not because she has any issue with other dogs, but because she came from a home where she had to share her life with lots of other dogs and she would really like to retire and be someone’s best girl. She would be a great first-dog for someone new to dog ownership or maybe an older family because she is generally calm, quiet and easy (just add water and stir) but really she could be great in any home.  She is not really the kind of dog who wants to go to the dog park but would love to be someone’s walking buddy (again, good on a leash!).

Luna isn’t clingy. She is happy to be with you, but if you need to run some errands she isn’t one to freak out about it. This sweet girl seems to understand that you’ll be back and is content to wait until you come back for her. She just seems to understand, and waits for you to come home and pat her on the head.

 5/17/15 Update: We are so proud of Luna! Yesterday she graduated from her obedience classes! Here she is in her mortarboard, standing proud. We couldn’t be more pleased!
