Shiloh is a love bug and enjoys spending time with you, being petted and cuddled.  She’s an active girl and gets excited about her daily walks, playing with her soft toys in the house and playing catch and fetch in the fenced yard.  She also gets excited about meeting new people and is learning to sit to say hello instead of jumping up during a greeting.

In her foster home, Shiloh is an only dog and seems to appreciate being the center of attention.  In her original home, she was crated too much of the time and took to chasing her own tail out of boredom; she would, actually, grab and chew on her tail.  After months and months of this, most of her tail had to be amputated, but she doesn’t seem to miss it…she wags her whole rear end to show her enthusiasm.

Shiloh does have some prey drive and chases rabbits and squirrels out of the yard; we don’t think she would be kind to a cat and should go to a cat-free home.  When out for her walks, she will bark and focus on another dog, so her adopter will want to continue the training she’s getting now; she is learning to look to her foster Mom for direction.  When she first arrived in foster care, she didn’t seem to know how to walk on a leash, but she has added that skill to her repertoire of responding nicely to “sit, down, come and give paw.”  Now that her crate time is limited, she’ll go in and wait calmly when her foster Mom has to go to work, knowing she’ll go for another walk and outside playtime later in the day.

Shiloh is a happy, loving dog who will be a great companion for a forever family who is willing to work with her and continue her training!
