You'll all perhaps forgive the new mommie brag, but in a little less
than 3 days this girl is already doing a sit/stay before meals, before
any doors are opened, and before new mommie goes up or downstairs
with baskets of laundry! She just needed her own person and to put
that little GSD mind to work, too!

She's about 1 1/2 to 2 years old, and bounced around the whole
time apparently. We are probably her 4th or 5th home. Her
previous adopter had 3 kids and (we found out) did day care.
So Lillie got not a lot of attention. To the adopter's credit,
she contacted the rescue and kept her while he searched for
a new home. Lillie was great with all the kids, I got told
she let a 20 month old pick food out of her bowl and didn't do
anything. She did, however, knock a couple younger kids
down in her youthful exuberance.

We felt a little guilt at looking to begin with, it had been such
a short time since we lost Sierra, but then I started thinking
that a little over 5 years ago, we gave Sierra a home for
Christmas, and if she's looking down on us, I know she approves.

Everything in Lillie's (rather lengthy) bio made me keep returning
to it and reading. Great with cats, at one point lived with 4,
and let them chase her and would bring them her toys and even
slept with one. VERY calm in the car, we had a 2 hour drive home
and she did great. Alert to her surroundings, but doesn't bark
much.

Only 2 minor (to me) drawbacks, she had no recall (which I'm
already fixing!) and she pulled a bit on leash. (Ditto) We've
had 3 morning walks, with a lot of corrections and direction
change and treats, she is starting to walk loose leash. And
about 20 minutes into our walk this morning, she looked up
at me for the first time. (While walking, she watches me closely
other times!)

She needs to lose quite a bit of weight and get her coat in
better shape, but she was being fed Purina and Alpo if you
can believe it, the Purina pretty much free fed. Ugh.

Great story! So glad you found one another! I'm sure that good food and exercise will get her slimmed down in no time!

I know how hard it is to get another animal after you've lost one but giving her a new home is a wonderful thing. I hope you spend many good years together and I look forward to hearing more about her. She sounds like a smarty pants!
