Luna is a huge, chunky, cuddle bug.  She is a head turner every time she goes out. She is super friendly with everyone and stands still for pets but she is dog sensitive and is apprehensive of other animals. She loves to lie down and keep you warm while you watch TV and will let you know she's there with her loud snores. Luna is very smart and is a quick learner. However, let it be known that she doesn't listen very well!

Likes: Luna loves to lie down next to you, snuggle or just hang out with you. She is not particular about toys but loves her bones.  She is happy to just lie around inside the house or outside in the yard. Luna loves to be brushed down.

Dislikes: Luna dislikesbeing crated and being alone. She will whimper when she can't see anyone but will settle down after a while. She also dislikes her medication.

Personality: Luna is a cuddler. She enjoys the company of people. She has an easy going, no fuss attitude all the time. She might go looking for you, or anyone else who is in the house.  If you have a guest she will lie down and ignore them but if they pet her she will welcome it. She is not very needy for attention - she is quite content just hanging out with you.

Temperament: She is a very easy-going, lucky girl. Not very active. Occasionally she will get the zoomies and will jump on all fours like a bunny. She is generally very calm, hardly barks, and just enjoys company.

Energy level: Luna is not a jogging or hiking buddy! She is sometimes ready for a walk and socializing. She is more of a couch potato.

Favorite activities: Luna loves to walk in the backyard behind you and sleep next to you. She also enjoys chewing on a bone.

Good with cats, dogs, and kids (over 6)?:  Luna is good with kids, but she is NOT good with cats and dogs.

Not good with: (Cats? Dogs? Strangers? Men? Kids?): She loves people. She is big and sometimes gets the zoomies which would be unsafe for little kids and older folks. She gets along with both men and women.

Housetrained: Yes!

Crate trained: Yes, but it’s not recommended as she hates it and will find a way to get out.

Requires a fenced yard (physical fence and/or invisible fence)? A fenced yard will be required for Luna.

Walks well on a leash? Luna is not leash trained. She will walk when she has to for a short distance.

Challenges: Luna has been bitten by another dog and lived outside for a long time.  She could hardly hear (due to a severe ear infection for an extended period of time) and could barely see (due to entropia). All of this has made her weary of other dogs and a bit shy in new environments. She is making steady improvements - she can now see and hear and is learning her world again. She thrives with consistency.

Any Medical issues?  Luna has heart arrhythmia. Currently she is not on any medication, but she will need follow-ups as she ages.  She has had Entropian surgery in both eyes and is healing very well.

What would be the best kind of home? Luna needs a family where someone is home more often than not (as she doesn’t like to be alone). She must be the only pet and a fenced in yard is required. Someone who knows a bit about the Tibetan Mastiff breed would be beneficial. Her approved family would need to commit to a training regiment.

LUNA IS BEING FOSTERED IN ELLICOTT CITY, MD.
