One and a half year old Lily is a large, energetic dog. Her handlers are not sure of her heritage. They feel that with her long legs and love of running she is at least part greyhound.
Lily has not had much training. Since she arrived at the shelter her handlers have been working with her to teach her how to walk on leash. She has also learned the sit command. She will benefit from more training with someone that can devote time to working with her and giving her some direction so she knows what is expected of her.
The perfect home for Lily does not have any small animals or small children. A meet and greet can be arranged if there is another dog in the home. She would love to run in a large yard or accompany her person on a long hike.
