Linzy is a true Talent Hound and proof that Rescue Dogs Rock. She was rescued at the age of four by her mom Reta and was told that she would never be trainable. But Reta never gave up on Linzy and began training her. Linzy has gone on to prove all of her naysayers wrong. She was featured in the Talent Hounds documentary in 2013, and won the title of “Toto” on CBC’s “Over the Rainbow” after beating out all other contenders on Nov 4, 2012. She completed challenges in a photo shoot, agility, dancing, stunt dogs, riding in a basket on a bicycle and told to jump “out”. CBC required long sit stays of 15 to 20 minutes. She sneezes and scratches on command and does many tricks like dead, rollover, paw to foot, lay down and up down and others.
Reta explains “Linzy had two homes before ours and was almost 4 before we were lucky enough to get her. She knew nothing but was eager to learn. She’s a gentle, smart, bright enthusiastic dog. Everyone loves her.” Linzy frequently gives back at charity events and is great with children.
