Lili is a good dog. She's smart, loyal, playful, affectionate, rambunctious, energetic, and so full of joy. She is great with adults and older children because they are predictable and fun to play with. Once she warms up to them, she loves other dogs and plays with them all the time.
I've had Lili for 5 years since she was a very young puppy, and I've not been able to give her what she needs to thrive. She thrives under regular training and exercise, but I've not given her the consistency. She has a hip problem that causes her frequent pain, and I've not been able to afford to treat it, so she can be grumpy and achy. As a result, she can be mischievous, eating socks and undies and books. She's become territorial and has a hard time with other dogs. Finally (the reason we need to rehome her), she has shown aggressive behaviors to our toddler. Lili is not a lost cause, she's a good dog. We just can't give her what she needs to be a great dog right now. :(
