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.
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.
Lilac has been under the guidance of a trainer since early October, she has shown progress, and currently the good news is, she is doing well, and the trainer has high hopes for her. She listens, and obeys, knows her sit, and has no problem going into a crate at night time, or during the day for a nap.
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.
Lilac is being fostered in the GILROY AREA.
