LuLu comes to NZCR from Auckland and entered Christchurch on 27/04/2019. LuLu does not like cats or children and this was affecting her former owners' life, together with some serious health issues. Unfortunately, Lulu's former owner made the hard decision to selflessly surrender her.


Lulu is OK with people, although initially unsure and wary of strangers, she has a very sweet side and enjoys cuddles.

We are advised LuLu is food possessive, she has been known to attack cats and some female dogs. LuLu has had limited exposure to other dogs of her own kind - this is something we will work on in foster care.

We are still getting to know LuLu and will update her profile shortly.


LuLu was to be de-sexed on 17 May 2019, however pre-operative blood tests found that she was anemic and surgery was cancelled. LuLu will be taken back to the clinic in two weeks for further testing. If her blood results have improved she will be de-sexed. If this cannot be completed or there are further issues to investigate LuLu will remain in NZCR care.

Lulu will be de-sexed and vaccinated up to date by NZCR.

Adopter Requirements: 
- A part time worker, works from home, or is retired is preferable.

- Fully fenced backyard, with no holes or gaps.

- Please do not apply if you have a young family - LuLu is not suitable for children.

We are still getting to know LuLu - Further requirements may be added in time.
