Facts about Jilly

  • Breed: Labrador Retriever/German Shepherd Dog Mix
  • Color: Tan/Yellow/Fawn
  • Age: Puppy
  • Size: Large 61-100 lbs (28-45 kg)
  • Sex: Female
This is Jilly. She is intelligent and enthusiastic with lots of joy for living! And she is really lucky to be alive! She and her mother and siblings had a very rough start in life and would not have survived without the help of kind, compassionate people. Although, life hasn't been easy for Jilly she is happy and very friendly. She is ready now to find the family who will love her and keep her with them forever.

Her sleek, streamlined body makes us think she is some kind of hound mixed with shepherd and lab. We wonder if there is Greyhound in there somewhere because of her long, lean shape and her incredible speed! She is fast, very very fast! She is the perfect combination of maneuverability and speed! She's like the Ferrari of the dog world! It is very exciting to watch her!

Jilly is 11 months old. She was rescued at about 3 months and lived in a foster home until she was 5 months old. At that time she was adopted to a couple who live on a hobby farm. Everyone thought it would be a great place for her but unfortunately the laid back quiet lifestyle is not for Jilly. She is very smart and quick thinking and If left to her own devices she will look for her own fun! She did - and she found it! She decided that tormenting the goats and alpaca's was a great way to relieve boredom! Dogs and goats are often not a good combination and especially for a young, high spirited dog like Jilly. With heavy hearts, her family asked us to help find her a home where she would be happier and safer ......a home with more activity, more adventure and no farm animals!

An outdoorsy, active family would be the best match for Jilly. She would love to run and hike and spend hours outside. That being said tho, she is content to curl up and rest in the house when she is tired out from her activities. With the right amount of physical and mental stimulation for a pup of her age and breed, she will be a happy, loving and very exciting companion.

When she got back from the farm it was obvious that she hadn't been socialized with many other dogs. She had lost her confidence with them and was very nervous and unsure of herself. Those encounters with alpaca's and goats really took a toll on her confidence! Thanks to a wonderful foster mom and a trainer who understands her, she is more like her old self again - outgoing and ready to play. She is doing well at dog parks now and will need supervised on-going exposure to other dogs. It will help her if she meets lots of dogs and participating in agility and/or coursing would be very natural activities for her. A person who is experienced with high energy dogs and who has a calm demeanor and gentle approach is just what she needs.

Jilly is very sweet natured and loves to be with people She gets along great with kids but she shouldn't live with cats or other small animals! She has a very strong instinct to chase small things that run! And of course, goats and Alpaca's are out of the question as companions for her! What she wants most is a family who will spend time with her and who will include her in their activities. Another dog to hang out with too would be nice. She needs a large, fenced backyard so she can amuse herself when her people are busy - she wouldn't do well being left outside too long alone tho! She would start thinking again about what she could do to create some fun! Jilly will thrive with people who really make her an important member of their family.

Jilly is spayed, vaccinated and very healthy. Her adoption fee is $500.

Our Adoption Process...

If you are interested in adopting a rescue dog, the first step is to search through the list of our dogs currently available for adoption. All dogs remain on Adoptapet and our website (homeatlastdogrescuebc.ca) until an adoption is finalized so all dogs listed may be applied for.

Our job is to find the right home for each of our dogs. We will contact you to arrange for a home check at your convenience. Unfortunately, many of our applications are rejected, not necessarily because there is anything wrong with the home, but because it is not the right match for the dog. Following a successful home visit, we will arrange for you to meet the dog, usually in their foster home. At that time, you will decide if you would like to adopt the dog.

Before an adoption can be finalized, we will ask you to sign an adoption contract. Depending on the dog’s personality you may be asked to visit the dog once or twice before taking him or her home. This will be most common with shy, timid dogs. Outgoing and confident dogs can most often be taken home after the first meeting. Documentation for each dog will be provided upon adoption. Adopters must be ready to pick up their adopted dog home as soon as they have been approved and have agreed to adopt the dog. Home At Last Dog Rescue BC cannot hold dogs for people who have applied but are not yet ready to accept the dog into their home.

Please note: an adoption fee is required for successful applications. The adoption fee is non-refundable, even if the dog is subsequently returned. Home At Last Dog Rescue BC will always take back one of our dogs for any reason, and without question. Adoption fees for our dogs vary. The price varies based on the age and medical needs of the dog being adopted; costs are judged on a case by case basis.
