Adoption Alert ~ Lyka #2721

Hi everyone…my name is Lyka and I’m a four-year-old girl.  I actually have a really cute name that you can use in so many ways.  For example, you could say, “I look exactly Lyka Golden” OR “I Lyka good long walk” OR “Lyka virgin…touched for the very first time”.  Probably not what Madonna had in mind, right?  Okay, seriously, let me tell you a little about myself.  My fantastic foster mom describes me as wonderful, loving, smart, and calm.  I am soooo grateful to her.  She has been so patient and good to me and her kind words make me blush.  As much as I love people, and I really do, I do take a little while to get to know new people.  Once I know them, I’m really comfortable but initially I’m a little nervous so please don’t rush me and be patient.  My big problem, however, is socialization.  I’m not good with other dogs ~ they scare me.  I have this thing called ‘fear aggression’.  I also don’t like young children.  They make me nervous and I have nipped them.  I’m being trained and I really hope I can get over this but for now I’m best in a home with no other dogs or small children.  I know my commands and with the help of a gentle leader I’m getting pretty good with that leash thingy.  I don’t like loud noises but I’m okay being left alone if you have to go out without me.  I love my car rides, rolling in the snow, and playing fetch.  I do have a heart murmur but the doc says we have to keep an eye on it but I’m expected to live a normal, energetic life.  I sure hope he’s right because I feel totally fine.  In fact, I’m Lyka really healthy girl (teehee!)
