Lilo is a medium-sized, female Border Collie, aged 8 years old.Description:
Lilo is a bit special – her breeder has often referred to her as an autistic pup. She doesn’t do well with loud, odd noises (e.g., babies cries or noises, fireworks, vacuum cleaner, lawnmower, etc.) or sudden/erratic movements – it stresses her and she reacts very panicky. She needs a calm, quiet environment to live in happily. She has never socialised overly well with other dogs and would need to be closely supervised initially. In saying that she has lived with our 3 year old Labrador Retriever since we got him as a puppy and, although is very much in charge, plays and lives well with him. Also, she was in day care for a year or so and did not cause any issues, though we are told mainly kept to herself. She is not the sort of dog you’d let run free at a dog park or the beach. She is also on daily medication to manage incontinence and will likely be on this for the rest of her life.
For all her faults and need for management, she has a lovely nature with people (I would safely say 10 or older) who are calm in her presence – she loves a good cuddle but also likes to curl up in a quiet spot at the end of day. At home, Lilo has a run outside that she is comfortable and happy in when we are not home and a crate inside to sleep in at night.Is Lilo used to children? No.
