Lila and her siblings were surrendered by a wonderful local Minnesota family. They took on their momma's dogs after she passed and one, Rosie, was pregnant. Rosie will be spayed now that her litter is fully weaned. They are good with other dogs and kids, cats are unknown. All dogs and puppies require supervision and training.
Hello, my name is Lila.
I am a 35ish pound, full of energy lab shepherd mix. I can run for days that’s why I like to play with the flirt pole and Jolly ball. My foster family uses those toys to help me burn off the energy which I have quite an abundance of. I go on two walks a day but I don’t do well on the leash so it’s a lttle bit of a challenge for my foster mom but she’s so patient with me. She walks me along a busy street to help me get used to the noises of cars whizzing by. But I get scared of people so I typically will want to run back to the house. She also walks me to areas of the highschool nearby where there are kids playing at the tennis courts and football games but I’d rather keep my distance.
We are currently working on crate training, however, I prefer to lay on my plushy dog bed and not in the crate. I have a room all to myself. I am fully potty trained and have not had an accident in a couple months. I eat really well, no issues there.
I think I will do best in an active home. However, I do need some help being around people but I am curious and will sniff.
I am a playful but shy girl. Are you looking for me?
