I am up to date with shots, good with kids, good with dogs, and good with cats.
Lillian arrived on Sept. 10th weighing in at 21 pounds. She is approx. five months old. She is a doll! Lillian was a bit timid when she first arrived at my home and a little unsure of what was happening. I believe she is missing her brother, but she is enjoying playing with her toys and my adult dog. Lillian is very loving and is enjoying the attention she is receiving. She is always up for a good belly rub. She is warming up and adjusting quite well. She did very well for her first bath. She just rested her head on my arm. She had some play time afterwards and then snuggled into her dog bed which is in her crate. She doesn't seem to mind being in her crate. She has been giving pretty clear signals as to when she needs to go outside to relieve herself. No accidents in my home as of yet! Lillian will be a very loyal and loving companion to the lucky family that adopts her.
UPDATE: What a difference a day makes!! Lilly, as we call her, slept through the night in her crate in my bedroom. She will fuss for a minute or two, but all she needs is a little reassurance and she settles right down. She had no accidents during the night, nor any in the house as of yet. Her housetraining is going wonderfully. I take her out the same door each time and she learned very quickly to go to the door and whine if she needs to relieve herself. She has really warmed up and is much more relaxed with her new surroundings. Lilly plays very nicely with my adult dog, she is not overbearing or overly mouthy. She is a fairly calm pup who has her spurts of energy and is then very happy to snuggle or lay in her bed for a nap. She has no problem sharing the toys, and is enjoying some good games of tug of war. She is very content to play with the toys or chew a bone by herself. She is doing very well walking on a leash, although sometimes she needs a little reassurance, which is normal for a young puppy. She has met the family cat and showed no signs of aggression or fear. She actually did a puppy play bow, although my cat really wanted no part of playing with her. Lilly has made such remarkable progress in such a short time, she seems very appreciative of her new life and she deserves to have a wonderful family to call her own.
UPDATE: Lilly is very comfortable with all family members. She gets a bit nervous when greeting new people but warms up quickly. She is very happy to meet them, just a little timid yet. She used to get upset when I left the room, but she is starting to understand that I WILL and DO come back to her and she is beginning to relax and wait patiently for my return. She just needs patience during this adjustment period into her new life in a home. She really enjoys her daily walks several times a day around the neighborhood. I don't want to jinx myself, but Lilly seems to be completely housebroken! She goes to the door and will whine when she needs to go out for the most part. I also know her "schedule" and I'm certain to take her out when needed. No accidents at all in my home! She is very gentle when taking a treat. You can pet her when she is eating and take a toy or bone from her without her getting upset. She is proving to be a quick learner, and we are working on the sit and down commands. She also is starting to understand the "leave it" and "no" commands. She is fairly calm in my home and not mischievous. She almost has this way of "talking" when she plays with my dog. She loves to lay down while eating! Lilly is really a diamond in the rough, and with a patient, loving home, she will truly shine. If you are interested in adopting, please complete and submit an application for adoption.
