Luna (formerly known as Mandy) made a great impact on the people at our shelter from the time that she was with us, and continues to make an impact in the life of her new forever person. When Luna came to us, she was quite nervous of newer people. She underwent some work with our team while in our care, and was with us for about a month before heading to her new home.
Our team became so fond of Luna while working with her and caring for her. She showed her amazing personality to the people that she became close with, and we knew that this sweet dog was going to make a wonderful new addition to her family.
A New Addition to the Family
Luna’s adopter shared only after a couple days that she was already settling in very nicely. Now that she has been there a bit longer she is getting her routine all figured out!
At first she struggled with learning the dog door, and the car was a bit intimidating to her, but practice makes perfect! She is the best addition to their little pack, and instantly found friendship in her dog sister Daisy. They sparked play right after Luna came home and love each other very much.
“She has mastered the dog door, picked a spot in the back yard for her bathroom and is learning that the car equals adventure! She is a really fast learner and picking up daily life pack cues from her sister. Her manners are actually amazing and so far she has not really tried to push her boundaries. She respects her big sister who is slowly warming up to her more each day. We can tell this girl is going to be absolutely amazing as she develops her confidence in herself and absolute trust in her pack. She already picked up that when there is something she wants (IE: cheese LOL) she needs to sit pretty and patiently wait her turn, no encouragement needed.” – Luna’s Adopter.
Adventures for All!
Luna has been getting aquainted with her new backyard which just so happens to be five acres of fenced yard. This has given her a taste of adventure which she has been getting more and more of.
Her and her dog sibling go out together to experience new smells, sights and wonder!
Her new family also took her to rattlesnake avoidance training this month so that she could learn some safety skills and to help them all be a little more precausitous while having fun! They have been praciting their skills, and have spent time at their local parks and meeting new dog friends. Her adopter shared that she did amazing on her first check-up and they are so excited to do life all together.
