Lizzie is a little dog who lives in Taranaki, New Zealand. She is a loved family pet, who has had a very interesting life.
The author's daughter rescued her as a puppy and cared for her for seven years. A change in circumstances saw her needing to be rehoused, so Lynne and Stephen decided to take her home and love her.
Lizzie's story, while fictitous, has an element of truth. She is a funny little dog who always seems to attract "situations".
