FUN FACTS: Libby is a delightful character and shows great affection for everyone. She enjoys snuggling, loves to give hugs, and she is extremely gentle and kind...outside of her Pyr Paw, which is very strong when she opts to use it. She does well with dogs but can sometimes be dominant and overly bossy, so shell need someone experienced in handling interactions between dogs, as well as understand it may be a little more prominant in the beginning. She is well behaved and loves to go on walks. Lizzy has a very big bark and while she isnt excessive, its LOUD, so being mindful of close neighbors is important. **PLEASE READ FOLLOWING INFORMATION

IMPORTANT: Libby will forever have to be leash walked and NEVER allowed off leash for any outdoor time, even potty breaks, even in a fenced yard. She will bolt and climb/clear a 6ft fence without hesitation. She enjoys going on walks and is great on a leash, so someone who likes to take a few daily walks would be ideal (NOTE that Libby is NOT a jogger or long distance runner). She is a big girl, though, so her adopter needs to be comfortable holding her on a leash. Libby is well behaved indoors, but will require a giant crate when someone isnt home to protect her in case she becomes afraid of a sound or storm. We feel she would enjoy the company of another dog but it is not required. She will require patience during the transition, however. Libby is a LOVELY girl with a tremendous heart who is adored by everyone she meets. She is charming, affectionate, kind and all around wonderful...but she does require someone who will understand her needs.
