PLEASE NOTE: This is a Courtesy Listing, so ARRF is unfamiliar with this dog. To meet Lua, see the contact information below.

Well-mannered patient Lua, the Catahoula mix, has had enough of living at the San Diego County Animal Shelter in Carlsbad- she is ready for her furever home now!  Lua is five years old and currently weighs just over 72 lbs. Besides her gorgeous appearance -- she has a striking white coat with brindle markings and elegant long legs -- this beauty is gentle; she walks well on a leash, doesnt jump, and takes treats with a very soft mouth.  She has been so well-mannered with other shelter dogs that the staff recently used her as the "go-to" dog to evaluate the "dog-friendliness" of other dogs.  Quite an honor! 

Lua likes people- she is attentive to her handler and knows (and obeys) basic commands like sit. She is also quite the athlete-- she has good energy and loves running around the shelter playing yards off-leash, chasing balls or toys, or playing with her handler.  And true to her Southern California lifestyle, she jumps right in if she is near a swimming pool!  

After her walk at the end of the day, this good girl trots right back to her kennel, curls up on her cot, and patiently waits for her evening "happy hour" treat- a peanut butter Kong- to be delivered.  As she nods off to sleep, she dreams about having a home of her own.

You can meet Lua at the San Diego County Animal Shelter, 2481 Palomar Airport Road, Carlsbad, CA 92011.  The shelter is open to view animals from 10 am-4 pm Tues-Sat and by appointment by calling (619) 767-2675.  Be sure to mention Luas ID number: A1849200.
