Lilly (homed)

Lilly after waiting patiently for over a year, has finally found her forever home with Anita, Jason and the little chihuahua Peggie who could not imagine life without her now 🙂 Yay Lilly!

Lilly is a gorgeous shiny black girl who loves routine and her walks. She likes to know her place in the pack so would suit a dog savvy person. She prefers a calm household and shows no interest in children so would suit a home with young adults and up. She is learning to meet and greet dogs sensibly and would need someone who can continue this training, however once she has met the dog she loves the company and currently lives in foster with another grey.

Her foster says the following about her: “Lilly is a beautiful black girl with a trim athletic build despite her love of food. She is wonderful inside the house and lives happily with her foster greyhound sister – sharing the couch and toys as well as her humans. She is very well mannered and learns quickly. Loves her walks and a swim when she gets the chance. She has been attacked by other dogs in the past and needs support when meeting strange dogs outside. She has been assessed by a professional trainer and we have a training program in place to rebuild her confidence.  She is responding well and is now ready to continue this work in her forever family. Lilly responds well to a calm, consistent environment with positive reinforcement and lots of cuddles. She has the waggiest tail and will reward her family tenfold”.

Lilly would suit someone who is really willing to commit for life, because she is so sensitive and she would regress if returned after a trial. She has waited a while now, and surely her time must be coming soon.

Lilly is in foster care in Sydney, she is not cat friendly.

Lilly is:

*  4 years old

*  desexed

*  microchipped

*  vaccinated

*  heartworm yested and treated

*  costs $300

    Is it possible for someone out of state ( I live in Melbourne) to adopt these lovely dogs? I am entirely sure that I have room on my couch for a nice, cat friendly girl such as Lilly 🙂
