Wanna play tag? Livia sure does. She gets very excited when someone comes to get her for a walk, but can easily calm down once she starts walking. Livia does well on the leash and loves to sniff and explore. Livia doesn’t find much interest in other dogs but would do great with a gentle buddy in her new home. She is super friendly, but a little anxious living at the shelter. Livia is active and playful, and does need some basic training and exercises to help with her jumping and barking. Her manners aren’t quite up to par when it comes to accepting treats because she loves them so much. Come meet Livia and see how sweet she is for yourself!
