Approx Age:  3-4 years
Tibetan Mastiff mix 
Female, spayed

The beautiful Liona appears to be a Tibetan Mastiff mix. She is 120 lbs, 3-4 years old. Sweet as she is, such a big girl is a lot of dog to manage. We are seeking experienced large dog owners only who understand the challenge and will be committed to continuing her training.

Liona is naturally reserved and may take several weeks to trust a new environment. However, she really loves her human once she bonds and gets very excited seeing familiar people. She loves going on walks and also loves playing with other dogs. She is quite a sight when she is jumping around, romping and playing. The ideal home for Liona would include another dog as companion and playmate.

Normally Liona is a quiet dog, but tends to be territorial in her home and may bark at guests - we strongly recommend working with a trainer to get her past this problem. When she is in an unfamiliar situation she will try to get away if she is scared or uncertain. However, she has done very well being examined at vet clinics.

Liona is smart, sweet and sensitive. She can be stubborn but really wants to please and will respond well to a capable, confident leader. She does not like being in a crate, but has been left alone in the house for 4-6 hours confined with a baby gate.

Liona is spayed, microchipped and up to date on vaccinations.

Note! Any inquiries about this companion animal will only be answered after completion of an on-line application. You will be contacted by a Dusty Paws Representative within 24 hours after receipt of your application.
