Meet Delilah (“Lilah”), a 3 year old Black-Mouth Cur / German Shepherd mix who has the sweetest kisses and most loyal disposition. Lilah is spayed, house broken, crate trained, and up to date on shots. She is intelligent, playful, loyal, fun, and wants to please her person/people. She’s an amazing gal and very redirectable for training. When ready for playtime in the fenced-in backyard, she will romp in the autumn leaf piles (recently covered in snow) and chase and chew on a stick or two (sometimes she’ll even toss them into the air and try to catch them herself). She’s very devoted to her foster family and guarding the yard, and that includes signaling neighbors and passersby with a “Bark!” (stay back!). Inside, Lilah is a big fan of lounging on the couch with her foster people and their resident kitten. She sleeps peacefully through the night on her dog pillow, and loves canine enrichment games like hide and seek in the house with her treats.
Lilah’s big, big, BIG hope is for someone who is looking for a devoted, protective, and intelligent canine companion and who is okay with her new-people shyness. Her ideal person is someone whose home is quiet, predictable, loving, and not too close to other neighbors since she sees fit to regularly keep guard for her people (and as you can imagine, that can be tiring without some personal dog time off). Lilah is also blind in her right eye from an early life injury (cause unknown) but this does not impact her functioning.
Lilah can’t wait to meet her furrever family! Could this be you?
