ARE YOU UP FOR THE LILO CHALLENGE?
Adopted from a city pound 7 years ago, Lilo’s current family is moving and cannot keep her any longer. This mini Schnauzer/Poodle mix weighs 11 lbs. and is now 9 years old.
Lilo loves adult humans, is über friendly with women, men, even strangers but has a serious disdain for children (the owners suspect that she was mistreated by children in her first home) and becomes very upset when she sees them.
Overall Lilo is super affectionate and loves cuddles and kisses. She adores walks and enjoys 30-60 minute outings every day. She is leash reactive when she sees other dogs, bikers, skateboarders, etc. She is a very playful and energetic dog despite her age.
She is NOT friendly with most other animals, she can be a bit of a control freak, but was able to live with a submissive Jack Russell for 6 years. Grooming is not a favourite activity of hers but perhaps with positive reinforcement training she may become more tolerant.
Lilo uses a pee pad and does her business outside, however she is known to have “accidents “on other mats lying around the floor. In the early years she enjoyed being in her crate, but of late it wasn’t available to her.
Lilo likes her people close by and does not enjoy being left behind. Although her current family did leave her for up to 6 hours, it is reported that she is very vocal.
To be eligible for the Lilo challenge the following are absolute requirements: Single family dwellings only (no condos or apts.), no kids or grandkids, experience with difficult small breed dogs, a secure fenced yard for her to roam and play in, another dog IF it is submissive and will allow this peanut to be the boss. No swimming pools unless securely fenced with a separate enclosure. No cats. Another dog if small and submissive. A presence in the home, home office, etc.
Lilo is spayed microchipped and will be fully vetted.
