Luna problems and potential adopters

I am still hopeful that we can leave Europe in mid-October. But things aren’t going well for Luna at the moment.

Gearing up to give Luna away :(

We’ve been looking after Luna for 5 months now! She’s our 4 year old,¬†golden retriever mix foster dog. Being newbs to the dog foster program, we had no idea that we should start training Luna¬†from the beginning.
