Scruffy Lilo Is Our Fun Loving Pet of the Week
Meet Lilo, a happy little female terrier/schnauzer mix pup! This less than a year old girl gets the spotlight as B101.7's Pet of the Week with the Humane Society of West Alabama.
This adorable dog has a black scruffy, wiry coat with a white chest. She is small, weighing about 25 pounds and may get a little bit bigger, say up to 30 pounds.
Lilo was pulled from our local animal shelter where she had been an owner surrender. Then, she was adopted out. But, the landlord found out and she had to be returned.
Shelter volunteers say Little Lilo is full of energy and so much fun!! They say she is very friendly and wants all of your attention. Lilo loves to play and would make a great workout partner in that she will need exercising to get her energy out.
The Humane Society adds that Lilo might be ok in in an apartment, but only if she gets daily walks. She will require a fenced yard if left outside any unattended. She will chase after a squirrel in a heartbeat.
Lilo seems to do well with other dogs and should be fine with children 10 and over. She is still jumpy and a big puppy so Lilo will need training and structure to help her develop into a well-mannered adult dog. The shelter has started her crate training.
She's up to date on her vet care, spayed, heartworm negative and is microchipped. She is on heartworm and flea/tick prevention. If you want a dog that will make you smile, then Lilo is the dog for you!
