Default Oklahoma German Shepherd Mix (Free)

We have to give away our German Shepherd Mix. If you are interested, and are in Oklahoma (or within a reasonable drive of Oklahoma City) please contact me. Here is the text of the craigslist ad. I am taking contact info out of it:



We are giving away our dog. Her name is Tiger Lily (we just call her Lily). She is approximately two and a half years old. She is a German Shepherd mix (mixed with what, we aren't sure, although we suspect Greyhound).

She is a very sweet and loving girl. Loves giving kisses and cuddling. She is house broken and fixed, and excellent with other dogs. She is very playful and never too aggressive.

The reason we have to give her away is because she has a bad tendency of running off if you don't have her on a leash. We have not been able to break her of this habit. She always comes back after a few minutes, so we think she is just trying to get more exercise. Unfortunately our neighbors don't take kindly to her running around on her own.

I don't want her habit of running off to overshadow the fact that she is a wonderful dog. She is part of our family, but unfortunately we cannot handle her right now. Also, we will be moving across country in a few months and we don't anticipate to have enough land for her to really be happy.

She is microchipped and she has had some shots. Unfortunately, our shot records were packed up when we moved from California, and we cannot access them until we get to North Carolina. We will send you all the record of her that we have after we are in North Carolina.

As you can see by some of the pictures, she doesn't mind babies or large dogs (Great Dane) sitting and crawling all over her.

Thank you.

Damn, I feel for you guys. I am not in OK, but am in NC. I'll run this by the boss, AKA Mrs CardiacColt, and see what she thinks. We have 2 small dogs now, and youngest daughter would practically kill for a good large dog. Either way I wish Lily good luck.

Thanks. I appreciate it.

I wish Lily luck, and please make sure you try to somewhat verify what background she'll be in, its all to common for animals to be given away free and end up fighting dogs.
That's ok, no problem. We will absolutely vette her family and their background. We don't want her to go to just ANYONE.

You will also need to deal with the other three missing her(as well as you guys ) I know from that. I had a dog many years ago (a lab beagle mix named Buddy) who had bone cancer had had to go "across the Rainbow Bridge" ( I was about 10) then more recently 2 years ago before Gator, we had MO(Shlomo ) a white bulldog(Std.) who's heart gave out from the Stress of the move .....

Update:

A family living near my wife in Oklahoma has responded to the craigslist ad. My wife went to see them tonight, with Lily, to meet them and feel them out. She said they seemed like great people, and have a good property for Lily. They have a six-foot tall privacy fence, surrounding a large back yard.

They don't have any other dogs, but that's ok because apparently Lily bonded to the woman immediately, and wasn't skittish at all in their home.

The couple and my wife agreed to let Lily stay there for a few days, and if it doesn't work out for some reason, she will go back to my wife. If it works out, she probably found a new home.

I also told my wife that if SHE (GGaC) can't get over the sadness of not having Lily around in a few days, to just go pick her up. I'm pretty sure the couple will understand and not judge her.
