July 19, 2013: I'm Luna. I am a baby and was born in Louisiana. I was one of four puppies dumped at a shelter at approximately 6/7 weeks old. Because I cannot see, BDRA learned of me and offered me a foster home which I graciously accepted.
Because I am so young (approximately 10 weeks old), I am currently working on housebreaking, leash walking, appropriate chewing, stairs, sit and down. Only this week, I started acting like a puppy...you know, romping, playing, finding my toys, etc. I love to chew on toys, bully sticks, bones, but especially mommy's ankles. I do get corrected by either a blow of air in my face or a water squirt bottle when I attempt to chew on mommy. So you see, until my big teeth come in, I must have lots and lots of toys and bones!!
Mommy is not sure if I can fully hear. I do hear loud noises, but I tend not to hear her voice. It could be that because I am a baby, I have selective hearing, but just in case, my "sit" and "down" are being taught by both verbal and touch commands. I am very food motivated and that helps me with my training.
I am very cute and adorable -- check out my pictures!!! How can you deny me?? If you think I could be a valued companion and you think you could love me fur-ever (I promise to love you back and I'm real good at giving kisses, plus I'm cuddly), please fill in the adoption application and make sure you ask for me!
