Oh, hello. It's nice to meet you…I think.
My name is Lydia. I'm a little shy, but I'm eager to find my forever family, so I'm trying to “put myself out there,” as they say. I'm almost 3 years old, weigh 38 pounds, and came to the Providence Animal Center from Florida.

I've been staying with a great foster family and my foster mom has been so patient helping me come out of my shell a little bit: I've met some of her human friends, and when we go for walks I like to say hello to the other dogs we pass. Sometimes I even get treats from the neighbors! I'm learning there are some tasty perks to being more outgoing! My foster mom says I am very treat-motivated, a healthy eater and housebroken.

While I'm becoming more comfortable around strangers, my friends at PAC think I would do best in a quiet, adult-only home. I like to be pet and am affectionate with people I trust – I just need some time to warm up, since I can get nervous if I feel overwhelmed. I love relaxing in my crate for a little “me” time – it's my safe space, so it would be great if you had one ready. After getting to know my foster family's resident cat & dog, I think I could also live with the right kitty or doggy sibling.

So what do you think? I'm spayed, up to date on vaccines and microchipped. If I sound like the right fit for your family, please send a completed adoption profile to foster@providenceac.org today! We hope to hear from you soon!

XO ~Lydia

    Even If You Can't Adopt, You Can Still Help!

    Foster Lydia

    Foster parents are always needed for kittens, dogs and puppies. Some pets need as little as 2 weeks of care while others may need a few months.

    No matter how little or as much time as you can dedicate, there’s an animal that would benefit from your help.

    Sponsor Lydia

    Your generous sponsorship will help cover the cost of the adoption package. It will also waive the chosen animal’s adoption fee!

    Pet sponsors receive updates about their sponsored pet and will be notified when that animal has found his or her forever home.
