Lilly was placed with a family by ARG in December 2017. We thought the home would be an excellent place for her, but we were wrong. That doesn’t happen often, but we are committed to our Airedales and their health and happiness and it just wasn’t working out. She came back to us the last week of June and is back with foster mom/trainer Cindy Green in Florence, SC.
Lilly is good with other dogs and goes to doggy day care at Woofers in Florence. She loves to wade in the pool and play with other dogs. She is happiest when she’s with her people, though she loves to lie in the sun outside. Lilly needs a calm environment, so probably isn’t suited to children under 10 or so.
Lilly can be anxious upon meeting new people, and she can escalate when there is excitement, but with the right environment, she will be your friend for life. We think she will be best suited to an owner who understands that an anxious dog needs structure and firm guidance to feel secure. Her trainer will help you learn how to continue her training to ensure a smooth transition.
Lilly is about 75 lbs but should lose 5-10 lbs. Physical and mental stimulation is essential for her. We see no real limiting issue with this girl except She does snore rather loudly. Lilly is really an excellent dog!
She might be the girl for you!
