Cute puppy alert! Lily is a confident cheeky little pup, she is starting to grasp puppy pad training, although this is just the very start of her training. She loves to play with both her siblings and humans alike. When playing with Lily you have to be careful as her teeth and claws and really sharp. Lily loves to play with cuddly toys and rope twisted toys. She is an energetic little pup who also loves cuddles with the humans in her life.
Lily has started her toilet training and she has started to grasp the concept. We have not started any other puppy training yet. She is a bright little pup and we think she will train well. As with all puppies, she will need training in all areas and her adoptive family will need to be committed to this. Lily needs to be with a family who are used to puppy training and who are aware of the breed types.
As Lily is still a very young puppy she is still playful and will nip as she does when playing with her siblings. House training is a work in progress and will need continued work. She has been carried by her foster mum’s 2 year old grandson (with supervision to ensure he does not drop them or doesn't get scratched or bitten in play). Lily likes to play with adults.
She hasn’t been tested in a car yet and hasn’t visited the vets yet. Lily is a puppy who is happy to be touched. She isn’t dominant over her toys but does scrabble for food with the other pups in the litter.
Like all puppies she needs to chew so slippers, shoes and the like need to be kept out of reach. She is too small to jump fences yet but care must be taken that she doesn’t slip through all holes in fencing.
Lily has been crated with her siblings at night and has been left in the crate while for up to 2 hours during the day. She is friendly with her siblings and the resident dogs in her foster home. She hasn’t met any cats yet but is young enough to learn with careful introductions.
If you are looking for a lifetime companion and prepared to put in patient training and have lots of love to give, Lily could be the girl for you. As she is very young she will need a family who will not need to leave her for long periods in the day and who understand the trials and rewards of owning a lovable puppy.
It is a condition of adoption that Lily is taken to puppy training classes. Lily will only be homed where someone is at home most of the day.
Lily has had her first vaccination and is not yet microchipped. The cost of the second vaccination and microchip will be the responsibility of the Adopter if she is adopted before. As with all puppies it is a requirement of adoption that all puppies will be neutered at 6 months at your expense. A voucher will be given at the time of adoption for a refund of £40 when she is neutered.
Lily is being fostered in Cheltenham, Glos, and all potential adopters are expected to visit her in her foster home.
