Lilac's life has not been easy....she was rescued from Devore shelter a year ago....transported to Sparks, Nevada ....was kenneled for a year. Her best buddy was adopted....leaving Lilac alone.....maybe she didn't get enough handling, we have no idea. Five months ago Lilac was adopted out to a trucker....life should have been good on the road for Lilac....but it wasn't...she was found alone in the mountain roads above Riverside (LA area), mid October . We are indebted to the very kind lady who saw and stopped to help Lilac. She had no sooner opened the door to her vehicle and with no coaxing Lilac did not hesitate to jump right in and settle down for the ride. The "owner" was contacted, but he said he was too busy, not in the area, "take her to a shelter, that’s where she came from", was his response. No concern for Lilac at all.
Lilac has one issue, she is somewhat dog reactive, she has never attacked or bitten an other dog, it is more based on fear. We do not know why, as she once was housed with another male GSD for over 6 months, and they were best buddies. We have had a trainer working with Lilac since mid October, three times weekly. She has come a long way, and her attention span has greatly increased towards her trainer. Delores the trainer cannot say enough good things about Lilac, and others who have met her too.
The BEST home for Lilac would to a family/couple where Lilac is the ONLY DOG (NO CATS PLEASE)...she will make a wonderful addition to a family who is familiar with her breed. We would like to find a family/couple/person who is willing to take Lilac to classes and continue making her feel comfortable around other dogs. Given her breed she will require daily walks, so an active family/couple/person is the best placement.
Lilac deserves a great loving home, she has so much to give in return. That's why we rescued her.
