I love watching Rocky Mountain Vet on Animal Planet.
I have ears with a personality of their very own.
I get along well with adults, older children, and kitties with slow and proper introductions.
I would rather not miss out on any opportunity to play with you and my blue sparkle ball!
Hi! My name is Lilo and I’m a very smart French Bulldog/Pit Bull gal who is searching for a furever home to call my own. I have a beautiful grey-brown brindle and white coat and my foster mom says I should have been named Radar thanks to my incredible ears! I seriously love play time and helping my foster mom garden in the back yard. I do a really good job of being friendly with the resident feline at my foster home. My foster mom also discovered that I really enjoy being blow dried after my baths.
I am crate trained and have a perfect record on being housebroken too. I’ve been working with my foster mom and a trainer on my manners and my foster mom says I’m one of the quickest learners that she’s ever met. She tells me to go to my “room” (my crate) when I come back inside from going potty and I immediately run to my kennel three rooms away (there might just be head pats or treats!).
I would love to be adopted into a home with lots of cuddle and play time. Are you my furever home?
From the foster mom:
Miss Lilo is a very special girl who is learning to trust after a very difficult start to her young life. She was saved by Ruff Start Rescue after being abandoned on the streets of St. Paul. While she is initially fearful of strangers due to her background, she does a great job of meeting new people one on one and will be on her back in minutes for belly rubs if you have her favorite snack – cat treats! When she first arrived, Lilo was scared to let me out of her sight in case I didn’t come back and she would follow me from room to room in my home along with sticking right by me in my backyard. Now, she loves to snuggle on the couch and is also confident enough to wander around my yard and the house. Lilo is barely knee height, but don’t let her petite size fool you. She is a little powerhouse with tons of energy who needs an owner with previous bully or similar breed experience due to her strength and determination. It would be helpful for her owner to also have experience with canine anxiety or be willing to continue to work with her on learning to trust that there are good people out there who will love her. She needs a home with no other dogs due to her reactivity and a house with a standard (non-electrical) fence. She is also a great security monitor and lets me know right away if there is someone in my driveway. She is highly intuitive and very tuned in to her people.. Once Lilo has met you, all she wants is to be by your side.
