Our sweet Lilly is ready to find her forever home, she has been used in the racing greyhound industry and now her time not to have to race or live in kennels.
Dogs name: Lilly
Where does Lilly sleep at night?
Lilly sleeps in her bed in the kitchen – she was a little pacey the first couple of nights but sleeps very well now that she has learnt our routine.
How is Lilly with current pets?
We have our own dog, but Lilly doesn’t pay him any attention at all – I think she could live with or without another dog in the family.
Is Lilly clean indoors?
Lilly had one accident on her very first day with us but has been completely clean in the house since. She happily goes to the back door when she wants to go out.
Can Lilly left alone?
It has been difficult to leave Lilly completely alone due to the current Lockdown rules, however we have been shutting her in a room by herself for a short period each day. She whines a little for a couple of minutes but soon settles and goes to sleep.
Is Lilly out on walks?
Lilly absolutely loves to go out on walks, she gets very excited when you clip her lead on. She is equally happy with a short or long walk.
How does Lilly walk on the lead?
Lilly walks lovely on the lead, no pulling.
Has Lilly met with other dogs?
Again, it has been hard to meet other dogs due to the social distancing rules but on the few occasions that we have walked past other dogs, she is interested to meet them, no barking and is polite.
How is Lilly with humans?
We’ve not had many visitors due to the Lockdown, but Lilly is not shy, and loves being fussed and cuddled, she will lean into you for a fuss. She appears to love my husband a little more than me and the girls so I feel she might be a ‘man’s best friend’.
Have you noticed that Lilly is afraid of anything in particular?
Lilly is very ‘aware’ of sounds and things going on around her, this is normal after spending so long in a kennel environment, however she is not afraid as such, and is becoming more confident in her surroundings as each day goes by.
Any other useful information?
Lilly is a very gentle, calm, simple and easy girl. She has discovered and started to love the comforts of being in the home, she is a bit of a couch potato but also loves to lay in the sunshine. She equally loves to go out on walks, and we have started to see her play a little with the toys. She wants nothing more than a cosy place to sleep, food and lots of love & cuddles.
