Helping death-row, abused, and neglected dogs find forever homes. We do not discriminate by breed, age or special needs. As long as we’re capable of helping out, we will never say no!
Meet Lilo! Lilo is an adorable 6 months old Chihuahua mix. Lilo is a cuddle bug — she always wants to be in your arms and loves to give kisses! She’s a bit shy at first, but very playful once she gets comfortable with you. She loves to run and chase toys, but is also content in your lap. So far she’s still trying to get the hang of playing with other dogs, but is definitely curious. She loves to chase her foster’s mini Aussie around and sniff him continuously! Lilo is great in her crate as long as you make it cozy and cover it with a sheet.
Lilo is working on her socialization with people and other dogs. She is playful and wants to play with other dogs. So far she’s only had experience with her foster’s dog as she’s still getting fully vaccinated. Lilo grew up in a home with cats, so she’s good with cats. Lilo doesn’t like when people approach her face with their face and may warn you to back off. Because of this, she may not be great with young children who can’t adhere to this boundary.She is super intrigued when kids are around and she just wants to observe them. Lilo is still working on potty training. But with consistency, she will be able to pick it up quickly. Lilo has been quiet except for a couple of playful barks when she’s playing with her foster’s dog, or when she’s left home alone. She will definitely need some work with her separation anxiety.
Lilo would be happy in the home with another dog as long as the other dog is somewhat independent. Both her and her foster’s dog are attention seekers and get very jealous when the spotlight is not on them. She could do well in a house or an apartment as long as she gets some playtime and a walk everyday. Lilo needs some socialization as she’s still afraid of many things, but is quite quick to warm up once she’s introduced to new environments and people. We are looking for a home who understands the responsibilities of owning and raising a puppy. Lilo is patiently waiting!
