I just wanted to drop you an email to let you know how Lilly is doing. Today we took her to the beach (she loves going to the beach as you can see).
We are so happy with Lilly, we couldnt have asked for a better dog!!!!!! Her and Jackson are now best friends and they spend all day hunting moles and making sure the horses and sheep stay on their side of the fence. I honestly wasnt sure if they were ever going to bond, it did take a good 4-5 months but they eventually accepted each other and are now inseperable. In fact when we go to parks or the beach they ignore the other dogs and only play with each other.
Thanks again for taking care of these beautiful dogs and making sure dogs like Lilly find their way to families like ours.
Josh, Anna, Lilly, and Jackson
Lilly is a 2-3 year old, very friendly, energetic, and outgoing. She's black and tan with one slightly crinkled ear, and on the large size at around 85 pounds. Lilly is very sweet and affectionate with her people, and will alarm bark appropriately at strangers. She's housebroken, crate-trained and generally well-mannered in the house. She's very bright, and has had some obedience training, but needs more work to be solid on recalls. She needs strong, consistent leadership.
Lilly is good with most other dogs, she does well at a dog daycare, but like most mature female German Shepherds, she won't tolerate rude or ill-mannered dogs. Lilly has high prey drive, so no cats or other little critters. Lilly doesn't like to be alone, so she needs a home with other dogs or people home most of the time.
This is a level 3 dog.
