This is a courtesy post for Lily's Legacy Senior Dog Sanctuary, which is a volunteer run nonprofit organization based in Petaluma, CA. Their mission is to provide a safe and loving home for large breed senior dogs, who have been displaced from their homes and/or abandoned for any reason, until they are adopted or to remain at the sanctuary until they pass on.

Sweet gentle Lili would like to thank Toraun McKinney for sponsoring her. Thanks Toraun.

Lili, a 9 year old German Shepherd arrived at our sanctuary from an East Bay shelter. Allan, one of our volunteers came in for his shift and laid eyes on beautiful Lili. Allan has a soft spot for German Shepherds and it appeared right away to be mutual. Allan fostered for her so he could give her the time and guidance she needs to adjust to her new life.

Update from foster dad, Allan…

Fostering Lili has been a real treat! She’s one of those dogs that quickly finds a way into your heart!! When she first arrived, we checked out the house and the yard and it all met with her approval. She settled in quite easily and was very appreciative of being petted and praised as well as going for nice neighborhood walks.

Lili is so easy-going, will approach with tail wagging to get some affection and then is very comfortable hanging out on her own! Chewing bones, not toys or treats, are her favorite! She loves car rides and calmly waits until I return from shopping.

Lili loves meeting new people, but does react around other dogs - we’re working on this – and have seen big improvements in only one week! On our walks, we’ve seen deer and squirrel which she watches with great curiosity but doesn’t lunge after – not a strong prey drive (Yay!!). Lots of compliments on her beautiful coat!! Lili knows her basic commands, responds easily to gentle correction and loves to please.

She’ll make a fabulous companion in her forever home!​
