My name is Livvy, and I am a black Affenpinscher. I weigh around 10 pounds and
have natural ears and a docked tail. I am one year old (my birthday was Nov. 18),
but I didn't get to have a birthday party until about three weeks later after
I had been rescued from that old puppy mill. My foster mom saw that it had been
my birthday, so she took me to McDonalds and got me a little plain hamburger.
It was sure good. Don't tell her, but my foster brothers had told me she did that
for birthdays, so it wasn't a real surprise. Two days later I went to live with
another foster mom and she is just wonderful. She teaches at the same school with
my first "mom", so I get to see both of them.
I have two foster sisters,
a Shih Tzu named Chloe, and a Briard mix named Beth. They are a lot of fun and
we all play a lot. I am housebroken now and I bark when I want to go out. If you're
not home, just leave a paper for me and I will use that if I just cannot wait.
A nice doctor checked me
out and gave me all my shots and some tests, and said I was a really healthy little
girl. Oh, I did get spayed, but it wasn't too bad. I live in Wichita, KS, now
and I will stay with my foster family and friends until you come along.
I can't wait to have a
forever home and family who will love me and let me love them, but until I do,
I want you to know that I am happy here. Livvy is a nickname for "Liv",
which is the Swedish word for "life". I sure had mine handed back to
me on December 7.
If you would like to find
out more about me, just e-mail Linda and she will call my foster mom. I hope I
meet you soon.
Tail-wiggles and doggie
kisses to all of you,
Livvy the Affenpinscher
P.S. I have learned how
to sit on command, and I can stand up on my two back feet and dance for you.
If you would like more information,
contact Linda McKellar. If you are interested
in adoption please fill out our Adoption Application.
Livvy is located in Wichita,
Keep in mind that we prefer
to place dogs within driving distance of where they are being fostered. If someone
from outside the local area is approved for adoption, they must be willing to
fly in to get the dog and that can only happen if the dog is stable enough to
travel in the cabin with the passenger.
Note: Livvy is not being
sponsored by NBGC. She was rescued from a puppymill auction by some folks who
love affens and donated funds for their rescue and vet work.
