Got a tennis ball? Lila loves her tennis ball and every person she meets! She is always excited to make new human friends.

Ever curious, Lila will take in all the smells and scents outside and in and around your house. She'll follow you from room to room like a little shadow out of sheer curiosity and wanting of companionship. While inside, she's happy to sit quietly next to you munching on some chew toys, and she also enjoys looking out the window and watching the world pass by, but don't get her wrong-this little lady loves being active on her long walks and loves playing fetch! Having a yard for her to run around in and to play fetch would definitely be ideal for her!

Lila is insanely smart, and although she's still working on some commands and leash skills, she is happy to learn and listen with some treats or playtime. She is fully house and crate trained and is looking to be the best companion in a single dog home!

INTERESTED IN FOSTERING?

We are currently closed to the public and are only open by appointment (foster or adopter), but we are still diligently working to place dogs in foster homes! You can inquire about fostering a specific dog by submitting an inquiry through the dog's individual profile on this website or by emailing [email protected] to get more information about how to be matched with a foster dog.

Please do not visit our shelters without talking with us first. To prevent community spread, we cannot have large crowds gathering in our shelters.
