A volunteer writes: Lady has that “it” factor, that something, something that makes every new person who sees her ask, ‘omg, who is that?’. She’s a doll, a delight, a wiggly peanut of love who is happiest tucking her head under my neck and alternating between purring and snorting with the pleasure of it all. Her leash manners are lovely, she’s a joy to be with and when we hunker down in the park for some pictures she’s in my lap, giving kisses, and then going belly up so that I can rub her cute belly. Likely a mom many times, she’s now all about making her person feel like there is no one more important in her world. She’s gentle, calm and easy, taking treats softly, making my job taking photos easy, and I fell head over heels in love with this wiggly, squiggly, loving little lady. Whatever has gone on in Lady’s past has been forgotten and forgiven and her eyes are toward her future as a loving bestie to some lucky person. Lady = LOVE and she’s waiting to show you just how much. Come meet her today.
Another volunteer writes: Popular folklore about Ladybugs is that they bring good luck and abundance and are the symbol of innocence. Our little gray Ladybug is all that and more. She’s playful, loves to give kisses, loves belly rubs, is happy snuggling with her person – a total delight. The person who is lucky enough to make Ladybug part of their family will be the recipient of a lifetime of kisses, tail wags, and uncomplicated love. It simply doesn’t get better than that!

Summary: Ladybug displayed no concern during her behavior assessment.
Ladybug greets another female through a barrier and is wiggly/wagging while sniffing before turning to walk away and give attention to handlers. However, due to her leg injury where she is non-weight bearing, she is not introduced off-leash. The behavior department feels that Ladybug could go to a home with another dog but may need a calmer playmate until her injury has resolved.
During her initial medical examination, Lady readily allowed all handling without issue.
RECOMMENDATIONS: Average (Suitable for an adopter with an average amount of dog experience)
