VOLUNTEER OBSERVATION (by a volunteer who loves her to bits.and she is not alone):
"Lilly is one of the happiest most affectionate dogs I've ever met. She's also extremely intelligent and loves learning new tricks. Since she's been at the shelter, she's learned "sit" and "down," and how to walk nicely on a leash. If you ask her for "kisses" she will lick your chin. She loves learning and learns quickly, so she would benefit very much from more obedience training and anything else to keep her busy (swimming, long walks/runs, etc.). She doesn't like other animals, and cannot live with any, but she behaves very nicely around other dogs, as long as they don't invade her personal space (she wouldn't be a problem on walks, etc.). Her favorite thing in the world is cuddling with people, even any that she's just met. She also loves playing in water and playing fetch. She is a wonderful dog and will have infinite love for whoever adopts her. "
PLEASE NOTE: Lilly needs to be an only animal as she is very dominant with other dogs and has a strong prey instinct, just like a proper hound should.
