Hi, My name is Lilo.
I guess you’d like to know a little bit about me!
I’m a curious girl. I love to sniff around at things, explore, and investigate My foster mom calls me “energetic,” which I guess is true. But I just love to chase balls, chew on bones and toys, and stay busy. I also love to run and play in the yard. I’m learning how to walk on a leash and everyone thinks I will catch on to that very quickly. I like to give kisses and affection, and I really enjoy a good belly rub!
I currently live with a thing my family calls a “cat,” I am very curious about her but leave her alone, mostly because she is cranky and doesn't seem to want to play with me. I like when people come visit, but sometimes I get sooo excited because I’m still learning about manners. Occasionally my enthusiasm is misunderstood so I’m trying to learn to stay calm when I meet people and other dogs.
Because I’m silly and happy, I think it’s fun to be the center of attention, but eventually I calm down. I have a kennel where I snooze when my foster family leaves for longer periods of time, but mostly I like to be as close to people as possible. I would really flourish in a single pet household, but I ‘m such a smart little girl that maybe with time and learning manners, I could stay calm around other animals.
Everyone that meets me falls in love with me because I am small, have a cute face, and my fur is beautifully colored. I am really looking for a forever family to call my own. Can you help me?
