Loretta has seasonal allergies. I give her Zyrtec daily. My vet says it has to do with what is in my backyard so allergies may change in a new location
|Vaccinations:||Yes, within the last year|
I have been dealing with a lot of personal issues which have caused my life to become very hectic. Unfortunately, my emotional capacity to give my dogs the love and attention they deserve is just not there.
I am rehoming both my dogs Loretta and Dixie.It would be ideal if they could go together, but I understand that may not be possible. Loretta would do great with a person or family who can give her lots of love and belly rubs. A person who needs a constant companion would do great with Loretta.
I am willing to travel with Loretta anywhere in the country in order to find her the best home.

Loretta is a lab Bassett hound mix. For some reason, she reminds me of a little hippo with pound puppy eyes. She is an extremely loyal dog and will follow you everywhere you go. She can be a little shy while she gets to know you. She loves belly rubs and laying next to you on the couch. She can be off leash with me at my house in front and backyard. She is kennelled when I am not home then goes out the doggie door as she pleases when I am home She is also a bit of a guard dog and will bark when someone comes to the door and at other dogs through the fence. Loretta is a bit of alpha dog, so she will do best as a one dog house or with a submissive dog. Loretta was just in a three-week board and train program. She did great but I have been unable to keep up with training. The trainer said she would give a free lesson to the person/family who adopts Loretta.
