"Tilly" Waits For Her Special Person!!
Tilly's eyes reflect the sadness in her heart. Where is my special person?? Tilly is a dog with a very unique need, but first let's get to know her. She is a three year old spayed tan and white smooth coated Deer Head Chihuahua. She was founds as a stray and has been at the West Angeles Animal Shelter since September 1, 2012…much too long!!
Tilly loves, loves, loves to play fetch. She will play all day if you want. She retrieves the tennis ball and brings it back to you to throw it again and again. She appears to be housebroken, and she gets along with other dogs, especially small dogs. She is initially afraid of large dogs, but once she sees that they are friendly, she is okay. Tilly is a very smart dog, and she learns quickly. She loves to give kisses, especially to her favorite people.
The challenge that Tilly presents, and what will require a very special person, is that Tilly is very nervous about making new friends. She does not like to be picked up when first approached by new people. The road to Tilly's heart will require patience, and begins with sitting with her and giving her treats. Asking her to come closer and showing her the ball while offering her an occasional treat will help build her confidence. As she gets closer, she will allow touching and patting her side…not her head, only her side. Talking to her quietly and being patient is the key to Tilly's heart. this is where that special person is needed. Once Tilly learns to trust and love you, she will be your best friend forever. Are you up for the challenge? The rewards will be many! Tilly is crossing her paws, hoping that person will be you. Please help this sweet little girl.
