Her eyes – man the way she looks at you with the warmest most loving and accepting eyes. Her gaze truly brings me joy.
How receptive she is to structure. When we are in a routine and have structure she’s very obedient and you can tell just how happy she is. When we are running everyday she has what I call a huge smile on her face; mouth wide open from ear to ear with her giant tongue hanging out.
Safety – I love how safe I feel with her. When she’s “on watch” she never moves from her post, always surveying what’s around us, keeping me safe from strangers or any potential dangers. She’s truly a magnificent guard dog.
How well she is with cats – I lived with two cats and Milo and Lila would say good morning to each other everyday. Milo would walk in and out of Lila’s legs to say hi and Lila would rub her nose against Milo’s back. It was absolutely adorable to watch just how soft and loving she can be.
When you first meet Lila, she’s shy, and needs to check and smell you out. She’s cautious of children and strangers, but as loyal as they come to her owner and to those she is familiar with. I think it best to keep Lila in a home with either older or grown children. Children under 10 would make me nervous.
She craves attention, affirmation, security, will follow you everywhere… like a shadow! She’s an excellent guard dog – meaning she will bark at intruders, strangers who are approaching your property or door, but she never barks at me, anyone she knows, etc. Lila is dominant and her hackles stand up when meeting other dogs but I believe this is due to social anxiety and not having a lot of animal interaction.
I am not well versed in dog behavior but I have watched Lila live with other dogs in years past and she did wonderfully.
She is just slow to trust and I think due to past trauma has her own biases. Loud noises scare her, will make her jump, she does great with fireworks though (from the past two years of being with her during 7/4).
All in all she is absolutely so sweet and loving and just wants to be by your side, accompanying you. She loves walks, hikes, and to get her paws wet.
Lila’s Current Home Environment
I don’t keep Lila outside, she has two beds inside. When I get up in the morning for work I let her out to potty. I feed her, and then I leave for work for 8-10 hours. I have a dog walker and friend come almost everyday. Then when I get home I walk Lila bc she’s usually a bit wound up by then. I have a two story house and she can go up and down stairs just fine. She likes to put her paw on you when she is laying down to sleep. My home is consistently quiet, quaint.
Lila’s Current Family:
It’s just Lila and myself so really she’s my family. I’m not home very often due to work and I travel often.
Lila’s Favorite Toys, Foods, Activities?
For some reason I can’t get Lila to fetch! Even if I throw something, she’ll run after it but won’t retrieve it back to me. She likes squeaky toys and stuffed animals. She absolutely loves chicken breast out of a can, she loves broth with her Costco kibble, and basically anything I’ll give her. Sometimes I put yogurt in her kibble, too. She is highly driven by treats, the “Greenies”. Lila loves going on walks and SMELLING all the new smells. Here there and everywhere, left then right, smelling as much as she can, following scents.
Cute Lila Story:
When I got Lila I had just bought a 4Runner. One of my absolute favorite things about that car and Lila is that I could roll the rear window down. Lila will face the back of the car, looking out the window, we’d be driving on the freeway and we often go to chase sunsets. I can see her one her fold down and one ear stay up as she sniffs the fresh air waiting for our next walk.
Why is Lila Being Rehomed?
I acquired Lila in a break up. I kept her for as long as I have because I love her so much and have wanted to attempt to give her a fair opportunity at a forever home. Due to the nature of my job, Lila is home alone, inside, all day, while I’m at work 8-10 hours a day, including some weekends. I can see how incredibly dull and bored Lila is despite having a dog walker and friend stop in throughout the day. It is getting to the point that I feel Lila doesn’t get to live her absolute best… she is clearly unhappy and so sad when I leave because she knows I won’t be back for hours. This is an extremely excruciating decision to have to make but I’ve exhausted all of my resources. I want Lila to be around someone who is present more often than not and really bond more with her so she can thrive.
Lila’s Perfect Adoptive Home Will Be:
Ideally Lila would do wonderful in a family with older children or no children. I’d love to see her go someone with acreage or land or lots of property that is fence off so she could wake up, do some chores and duties around the house, survey her land, and really spend a lot of time with someone. Ideally the new owner should be home often if not all the time. And it would behoove Lila to go to someone who has self awareness around dog behavior.
I would absolutely love to be able to receive photos and videos of Lila in her new home, thriving living her absolute best life. I am not in a rush to rehome Lila because she is far too special of a dog to let go to just anyone.
