Adoptable Dog of the Week- Lilac

Sweet, silly, and utterly charming, this tiger-striped gal is looking for her fairytale ending! Our Adoptable Dog of the Week is Lilac, an almost 2 years old Pitbull mix from St. Paul, Minnesota. She is spayed, up to date on her vaccinations, potty trained, and crate trained. Lilac would do best as the only pet in the household but can share her home with another dog that’s calm and laid-back. She’s not a good fit for homes with children or cats in the family. 

Lilac’s Tale

Bouncy, smiley, and always up for a nap on the couch or a snack, Lilac doesn’t just look like Tigger from Winnie the Pooh – she’s a pooch version of him. Well-mannered, sweet, and playful, Lilac will thrive in a quiet home, with owners that will love to cuddle, play fetch, and take well-deserved naps with her. While Lilac can be a bit fearful when she meets new people and takes a while to warm up to them (particularly men), once she gets to know you better, she’ll form a heart-warming bond with you and shower you with affection.

While not overly energetic, Local is still an active, athletic dog and would do best in a home with a securely fenced-in backyard where she could play fetch to her heart’s desire and chase after tennis balls. She is crate trained, potty trained, and does well on a leash – she is very treat motivated and smart and could learn more tricks with the right people to guide her. Lilac came to the shelter as leash-reactive but has done a lot of work to correct that behavior almost completely and her new owners should continue to work with her in the same manner – which is why she needs experienced and devoted adopters. 

If you’ve fallen in love with this brindle beauty, contact Twin Cities Pet Rescue to learn more about Lilac and the adoption process.
