Delilah is a 2.5 year old delightful female black Lab mix. She’s a very pretty girl and fairly big, weighing just under 80 lbs. ”Delilah” is a happy, affectionate dog, the best companion, excellent with toddlers and adults alike, and a protector of her home. She knows the typical doggie commands, is great in the car, only barks to scare away possible intruders (and her bark would scare them!), and loves going for a walk. She’s low-energy, just requiring some regular exercise like short walks, and she is also great at the office.
Delilah was recently diagnosed with epilepsy with grand mal seizures, which seem to mostly correlate with being left alone or high-stress events. She has not yet been started on seizure medication, but hopefully once she is stabilized on meds, her seizures will be a more infrequent occurrence. Ideally she should be with a foster or adopter that has experience dealing with a dog with epilepsy and giving the required medications, and also who can basically be with her most of the time.
She would do great as an ”emotional-support animal” for someone that will have her with them everywhere they go. She does need you to be fairly strong – she can pull hard, although she’s doing much better and pretty good about not pulling these days.
Delilah seems to have a strong desire to chase cats, so she should be in a home with No cats. She still needs some help becoming more socialized with other dogs. She did previously live in a temporary foster home with a small dog and they were pals.
If you’re looking for a truly devoted companion or even an emotional-support animal to have by your side day and night, Delilah will make you very happy. She’s so full of love and is such a good girl – she will be an amazing friend for life!
