Brianna from the Humane Society of West Michigan wasn't able to come into the studio yesterday morning so we talked on the phone about Lydia!

Lydia may be a big girl at nearly 100lbs, but don't let her size scare you! She's had a rough start to life, so she's actually the big scaredy-cat and prefers to take things slow when meeting new people. She has gotten along with chill senior dogs in the past, but she'd definitely prefer to be your only baby--furry or otherwise! Being in the shelter is a really stressful environment for Lydia, so she'd love to get out of her kennel and find a quiet home to call her own. She's hoping with a loving owner who will let her settle in at her own pace, help her feel safe, and build up her confidence! Could that person be you?
