The adorable, spotted Lilac has made her way to the available page. With one ear up and one ear folded over, she's hard to resist. Lilac was surrendered to FBRN after her previous owners had been keeping her separate from the other dog. She was housed in an xpen in their garage. They said this was because Lilac would have accidents on the carpet.
Since having allergy testing, Lilac has been eating a raw diet and she has not been itchy nor have her ears bothered her. Besides the listed items below, Lilac has no other known medical problems.
Lilac has never been around children, but her foster mom doesn't think she would have any problems with them. She loves to lick and groom her foster siblings and her foster mom too. At the least, any children should expect some licks and grooming as well. It is unknown how Lilac would do with cats and for this reason, they are a no. In her foster home, Lilac lives with her foster siblings and gets along well with all of the dogs.
Her favorite thing to do with her humans is to snuggle. She also loves to cuddle with her foster siblings and go for evening walks. Despite it being reported that she previously had never been on a harness or leash walk, while in foster care she has become a great leash walker. She gets along well with every dog she has met on her walks. She loves people, enjoys playing with her toys, and doesn't mind being crated when her humans need to run errands or step out. Lilac has spurts of energy to play, but is also fine to watch Netflix or cuddle while you work at your computer.
Her potty training is a work in progress. Lilac does best if she is let out every couple of hours to go potty. Her foster mom has said that she does have accidents and has a habit of peeing on door mats. Her foster home does not have carpets, except the throw rugs and door mats, and wouldn't you know it, she just hates door mats with a passion, as she has peed on all of them. Lilac is not a barker and doesn't require tons of exercise, so she would be fine in an apartment. She doesn't try to bolt out of the door either, so she'd be fine in a city environment. Her new family would need to get into a routine to take her out and add in a short walk. If she was left home all day then it is most likely Lilac would have potty accidents.
Lilac would do well in just about any type of home. She adjusted to her foster home easily. Her foster mom believes that she would be happiest in a home with another dog. She would make a great family dog. Lilac is very appreciative of all of the attention she is given. She does wonderful on car rides. The good news is Lilac would even make a great co-worker and could adjust to going to the office with someone.
Lilac's foster mom had this to say about her:"You can't help but fall in love with Lilac. When she looks up at you with her beautiful soulful eyes your heart just melts! From day one she was so loving and sweet. Lilac enjoys the company of her other foster fur siblings and likes to groom them. She has those motherly instincts and seems to want to look after other dogs. Whoever is fortunate enough to make Lilac a member of their family will be rewarded each and every day with unconditional love and lots and lots of kisses."
If you think that you have the perfect spot for Lilac, all you need to do is to fill out an application for Lilac and be ready to pick her up in Southern California, if you are selected.
FBRN does not ship dogs as cargo, so adopters are expected to pick up their dogs from their foster family.
FBRN dogs are in foster care in people's private homes. For the foster families' safety, we do not disclose specific locations, and we don't set up meet and greets prior to applications. For detailed information about the dogs in our care, please read the extensive bios on each dog.
Potty training for Lilac is a work in progress, so applicants should be prepared to continue to train her.
Lilac has several allergies including storage mites commonly found in cereals and kibble, and must remain on an appropriate raw, freeze-dried, canned, or gently cooked diet.
Lilac had a dental with extractions, ear cleaning, cyst removal, and spay in late January, 2020. She has a history of ear infections that must be monitored for recurrence.
