Delilah came to us in September of 2008. She was being fostered with Michelle of Grateful Dogs Rescue. She was nine months when we got her and already had some strong basic training. It is apparent that she has shepherd in her; the other breeds are hard to tell. We think she might have some Lab (soft mouth, webbed feet, strong retrieving interests) and maybe Hound (floppy ears, strong sense of smell, slender figure). No matter what she is, she is absolutely beautiful and perfectly loving. We aren't quite sure about her history as she was dropped at a shelter, but she has always seemed well adjusted and friendly with anyone she meets.
She is well known for dropping her ball at everyone’s feet to throw for her at our local dog parks. She is definitely ball crazy and can run faster than most (this girl is competitive). She has a ton of energy and keeps us active. Delilah is such a part of our family that she comes with us wherever we can take her; camping, family visits, hiking, hotels, etc. She is very smart and loves to please and show off her tricks. We are currently working on training her to put her toys away. Delilah is a lover – she thrives on cuddling and always has a paw on one of us. She is a fifty pound dog who will sit on anyone’s lap if given the chance. She has truly given us many gifts and we couldn't imagine our lives without her.We are so thankful to Michelle and Grateful Dogs Rescue for bringing her into our lives.
