Lizzie, a 4-year-old French Bulldog Mix, has a soft coat and charming personality, according to Jenny Bernot of Arizona Rescue.

“Lizzie enjoys meeting people and loves the attention that goes along with it. Lizzie will make herself comfortable in your lap for as long as you’re willing to host her – nothing makes her happier than a good snuggle session,” Bernot said.

“She loves walks around the neighborhood and romps in the park,” Bernot added. “One of her favorite things to do is roll around in the grass.”


Lizzie walks well on a leash and rides well in the car. “If she gets to ride in the front seat, she’s happy,” Bernot said. “If she gets to ride while sitting in your lap, she’s euphoric. Take her on an outing to a pet store and you better keep an eye on her…she’s been caught trying to sneak off with a rawhide bone on the bottom shelf of the treat aisle.”
