About Luna

Hi, my name is Luna.  I am a shy, petite, active six-year-old lady.  My natural ears add character to my stunning personality.  I have sad eyes and there is an untold story behind them.   I weigh around 50 pounds but don’t let my size fool you; my bark is double my size! 

I have to be honest and tell you that I have trust issues.  When I meet new people, I am very shy.  I may cower when you talk to me to protect myself from past memories.   So, I may be a bit anxious when we meet. Likewise, initially I like to eat alone.  However, once I warm up to you, I don’t mind company when eating.  Once I know you are gentle hearted and patient, I am your best friend.

I keep myself busy during the day.  I monitor the house from all sides and windows and will alert you to any pups walking the streets.  Mostly though, I just enjoy looking out the window or sunbathing on the deck.  I prefer to be your only pup but I am ok with other pups as companions, it may take three or four days before I decide to play with them.

I follow commands though sometimes unwillingly.  I am a bit stubborn.  You can always motivate me with treats!  If I am scared though, I will cower and may leak on the floor.  I am very healthy and prefer a harness to a neck collar.  I am sensitive to the collar from a past neck injury.  I like Vitamin E or Fish Oil tablets daily and putting coconut oil on my ears stops them from scabbing.

 The thing I like most is consistency.  Once I know the routine, I am very adaptable.  I will stay in my room at night without a gate. I do prefer a room to the crate but I am crate trained and will go in it with a little persuasion. I will allow you to sleep in, within limits.  I enjoy playing with my stuff animal but not too big on playing with a ball.  I will steal the ball if my companion really likes it, though.  I walk very well on a leash but when I see a four-legged cousin I will pull towards them and may act a fool.  If I walk when there is little to no activity you will really enjoy the walk.

I will need a fenced-yard and a quiet home which also has no children under 15 regularly visiting.

So, do you think we can be friends? Contact DAR&E today.
