**ADOPTED*** – Lydia, red female ACD, 3 years – Burnie TAS (then Canberra, ACT) – ON HOLD***

***Lydia is in URGENT need of foster care or adoption.  She has a very limited time to find a placement as her family are relocating and cannot take her to their new location.  Lyds will require an active owner who will commit to some additional, ongoing training.  Ideally Lyds would like to be adopted with her brother Ted, but if this is not possible, they can be separated.***

Lydia (Lyds, Liddie) is a gorgeous Red Heeler who was born on 26 June, 2019, desexed and microchipped, no. 991003000245466.  Her current vaccination is up-to-date.  She was purchased from a farm in the Blue Mountains NSW.

Lydia is a submissive dog always having the domination of Ted (the Blue Heeler).  She is a very happy dog, has never been aggressive towards humans but can get very aggressive around her food especially treats.  She has shown a little bit of aggression towards other dogs when she first gets to know them, but once she finds her feet she is happy to romp around.

She has grown up with two boys aged 12 and 13 years old, a blue dog and a cat who she is fond of.  She loves to walk off lead at the dog beach, loves the water, loves to run on lead but is currently a little overweight.

Lydia is by no means a working dog.  She is happy to lounge around, with a treat and just be in the company of her people.  She loves to exercise at the beach and is always super happy to get out and about.  She would suit a family person who has time to spend with her but may find it difficult adjusting to another family dog but will no doubt miss her companion Ted.

Lydia can be super stubborn but is one of the nicest, sweetest dogs we have owned.

Lydia can be scared around young children and will often go and hide, and has always been an inside dog.

Lydia will be in Burnie Tasmania until 30 October and in Canberra from 1 to 11 November.  I am happy to drive her to her new owner.

At present Lydia is being treated for a skin rash by our local vet (this is the first time this has happened).  Her rash should be cleared soon.
