Lily was dropped off at the shelter by her owner along with her sister Queenie.
Lily is 9 years old, very delightful and friendly
Lily at the shelter and both girls
meeting foster mom and dad.
Lily is a 9-year-old, spayed, very affectionate cuddle bug!
She likes to be as close to her human as possible.
Lily LOVES attention and enjoys a good snuggle.
The couch is a favorite place for her, but if you want her off the furniture,
she will obediently get off when told to “come”.
This sweet girl is crate trained and goes in willingly or if given the
command. She is crated at night and when her foster parents are not home.
Lily is also house trained and will go to the door when she needs to go out;
however, rehoming can cause slight setbacks until the dog finds the new
back door. Lily sits while the leash is being put on her, but her leash skills
could use some fine tuning.
She does not pull, unless she gets on a scent trail, but she does, at times,
walk behind her human. It has been noted that Lily is a bit skittish of loud
noises both inside and outside.
Lily is currently in a foster home with a 4-foot fence and a physical
fence is recommended. Her foster home does not have an invisible
fence so we are not sure how she would react.
This girl is very active outside and will need a decent size yard to
burn off her energy. Lily has great recall inside and out – when
called she will come and sit by her human.
Now, of course if she is on the scent of a bunny, all bets are off.
This girl is nose to the ground until she has run that bunny out of
HER yard.
Lily came into foster care with her sister, Queenie, and she does
great with Queenie.  However, there is also a resident male dog
in her foster home and cats. She is not fond of the resident male
and she has snapped at him – one night she caught him on the
nose and drew a little blood.

Lily is also curious about the resident cats and shows interest in
seeking them out. If the cats run, Lily will chase but if told to
“leave it” or “no” she will stop. However, this is constant.
Because of Lily's moderate/high prey drive; chasing the cats and
wanting to go where she knows the cats are; foster feels she
should not be placed in home with cats. Needless to say, she
would do best as an only dog OR she can be adopted with her
sister as long as there are no other dogs in the house.
Lily has not been exposed to any children at her foster home and
we are unsure if she was with her previous owner.
If you are looking for a couch cuddling buddy and someone to tag
along for rides in the car, Lily just might be your girl!
