Meet Lylah, a 2 and half year old Jack Russell x Foxie, who has been with her foster carers for 2 months and is ready to find her forever home.
When Lylah first arrived to foster care she was very unsure of her surroundings . To cope with this she kept everyone at a distance by growling and nipping. Though, with patience her foster family gained her trust and she opened up to them as a beautiful girl just after some love. After a week in care, it was only kisses, snuggles and tug-a-war.
Lylah is a fire cracker, who loves to run around the backyard and chase a ball. She is incredibly smart and has picked up all the new commands her foster family have taught her, like; sit, stay, drop, high five and shake.
Lylah is now crate trained and has learnt ‘in’ when it’s bed time. This has lead to her having had no accidents in the house, as her foster family have been diligent in taking her outside straight away in the morning.
Previously, Lylah was an outside dog and while she now enjoys coming inside, she shows signs of jitteriness when inside for too long. She would do well with a doggy door so she can come in and out as she pleases. She is also still learning some manners, and will need continued training with her jumping and tendency to bark.
Lylah enjoys a walk and is doing pretty well on a lead, however at this stage she does not do well interacting with other dogs, and would be best to be muzzled while walking.
Lylah is still nervous around strangers and will need continued work from her forever family to boost her confidence with new people.
Little Lylah is the perfect example of don’t judge on first impressions - because the Lylah you meet the first time, is not the Lylah you will see in a week’s time or a month’s time. She is a loving, affectionately sweet girl, who needs a forever family who will be patient with her and give her time to settle into her new life, and show her forever family who she really is. Lylah’s ideal home would be a quiet and relaxing environment with little commotion. She will need a home with NO pets or small children. She would be suited to someone with experience with anxious dogs, who can be a calm and reassuring influence for her.
Lyla is desexed, microchipped, up to date with vaccinations, flea and worm treatment.
