Hello to my adoptive family,

I'm Liberty. The condensed version of my past is as follows:
My life prior to rescue was not a good one. My previous owner thought that it was ok not to feed me, love me and complained about my health issues. They did nothing to treat them. One day a nice person followed me home and when my previous owner would not show a bag of dog food, he brought me to JR's near the end of December 2017. I was quite ill. I had several infections, broken teeth, Lyme disease positive, and was intact (not spayed). When I went to my foster home, I was frightened. There was food, water, toys, warmth, other dogs to play with and so much love. I just wanted to be held for weeks. My foster family did not get mad when I had an accident in the house; instead they worked on why it was happening. They said I had to gain weight and improve my gums, so I could get surgeries. Surgeries were foreign to me. My foster family said that the surgeries were necessary to reduce my pain and improve my health. At the end of February 2017 after gaining over 20 lbs. and my heat cycle ended, I went to get spayed. This was the first clue to my real age, I had to have emergency hysterectomy. At the end of March 2018, I went in for dental surgery. Now my broken teeth were removed, and eating was not as painful. Near the end of April 2018, I went in for my 3rd surgery: entropion (eyelid surgery). 3 surgeries in 3 months. I have gained almost 50 lbs. since coming into rescue. My foster family thinks I will gain a little more as I can walk with them.

Today, I am pain free. I can clearly see you. I am happy. I am loved. I am healthy. I still have a UTI that the rescue is treating. It may never go away because of how long I had it before coming into rescue. But don't let that scare you off. I have figured out how to communicate when I need to go potty. I keep my diaper dry overnight. I am having infrequent accidents in my foster home.

I live with 6 other dogs and 1 cat. My foster sisters and brother range from 6 months to 11 years old. Can you believe that I am the youngest of the senior dogs? Two are 9 years old. 1 is 11 years old. The cat is also a senior. I leave the cat alone. I enjoy playing with the 6-month-old pupster.

I am a talker when I first meet another dog. Some people think my talk is a growl. But I am just saying "Hi". One of my favorite things is walking with you. I hold my head high. I stand tall and proud. Smiling the entire walk. When I tire, I begin to slow down and that is my signal to take me back home.

I even bark at people, it is my way of saying "Look over here and come and pet me." Once you touch me, I soak up your love and lean in. I am starting to give kisses.

Tennis balls are another of my favorites. I will retrieve again and again. But there is nothing better than a good roll in the grass or on the snow. I also sit on command, come when called, enjoy car rides, don't mind my nails being trimmed or grooming in general. I like baths. I am working on learning other tricks to impress you.

I promise to love you the rest of my days, if you make me yours. I am considered a special needs/senior dog. I have come a long way for you.

Peace out,
Liberty
