My name is Lydia Loves. I am named after Lydia the founder of Vienna VA Foodies which helps support local business and first responders through this pandemic.
I’m guessed to be a beagle mix and told I am a senior but not sure exactly how old probably between 8-10 years old. But age is just a number right? Check out the adorable photo of my face! I currently weigh about 15 lbs.
I am a great dog for a family because I'm so good with kids. My foster family has four rambunctious kids between the ages of 10-13 and I loved when some of the neighbors. ages 4 and 6, came over to my foster house to play outside. My foster family also has two cats and our love was mutual from the start (after all, I'm almost the same size as them!). I'd also be a great dog for someone in a smaller home. I like to play in small spurts but I'm not wild or destructive when I play. I had a rough time before I was rescued, so my skin will need some TLC and I'm on an antibiotic until early July, but I am so excited to be somewhere where I am loved and I can't wait to find my forever family. (I'm napping...and snoring... right next to my foster mom while she types this!)
Oh, and a quick note. Sometimes my breed is notorious for being noisy, but I'm a very quiet girl. I've only barked once (one single bark because my cat brother was trying to wake me up from my nap) and howled twice (one short howl each) in the middle of the night on my first night in my foster home - I was feeling a little nervous, but I was a great sleeper on night two when I felt more comfortable.
This dog's bio is based off the experiences of the foster and/or volunteers of OPH as well as any information that we received from the shelter or previous owner. This is very important because it means that while they may act one way in the foster’s home, you may experience something different in your home.
