From the Foster:
Get ready to fall in love with Lilly! She's adorable, loving and cuddly. She's house trained, really good in her crate, and perfectly fine when left loose in the house. She gets along well with my dog, but mostly ignores him -- she's most interested in being with me! She's definitely submissive in the dog pecking order around here. Lilly loves her chew toys and going for walks, and enjoys sitting for hours in my backyard.
Lilly will need you to work with her on some of her fears. She is fearful of strangers. When she first arrived here, she snarled and barked at me -- but within a few minutes, I was her best friend. That's also the pattern with others who she's met for the first time. She also gets nervous around children and chaos. For this reason, a quieter, child-free home is needed for her. Note that she's only been with me since May 18, so some of her fearfulness will subside as she gets more settled in.
Lilly is an absolute sweetheart! While she can be shy and timid, she is very affectionate once she gets to know you. I would describe her overall demeanor as being calm. She loves to sit nearby while I am working or sitting on the couch. She is completely house trained – we have had no accidents at all. And, she goes quietly into her kennel and we do not hear a peep! However, we have started leaving her out overnight and she does great sleeping next to her humans! Lilly also enjoys walks outside and does great on her leash. She can be very timid when passing other people or dogs outside, but has not shown any aggression. She will bark when she sees strangers outside through the window, but she does calm down within a few minutes. She would likely need some time to warm up to other dogs and people. She prefers adults and would seem to prefer a calm, quiet home.
