Sweet Delilah is a coming up on 2 years old. She loves long walks and riding in the car and as with any good pittie she just LOVES everyone she meets. Weighing in at about 70 pounds she could easily be considered a large dog. And she can be pretty strong when walking her on leash with a regular collar. But with a SENSE-sation harness or Gentle Leader Easy Walk Harness she walks very well.
Abandoned and left tied to a fence little is known about Delilah’s early life. Her reaction to loud noises and the activity of the outside world suggests that it was very limited. With slow introduction and patience she enjoys her life with a foster family where multiple dogs and cats reside. An adopter should have training experience, knowledge of dog behavior and a desire to apply these skills. At 65 lbs. Delilah has an average energy level. Like a true Pittie she loves people and is an excellent couch potato.
Delilah have a few quirks. She startles at certain objects (bicycles, etc) and when she does she is gets a bit jumpy and out of control at the end of a leash. She needs an owner who is going to understand her fear based issues and be ok dealing with them. Continued exposure to these things have not helped so avoidance may be the best option. A home in the country where she won’t encounter the sounds and sometimes overwhelming things that a suburban setting is accustom too might be best.
So if you are looking for a beautiful girl with an excellent disposition then Delilah may just be the right dog for you.
