Tilley was abandoned when she was a puppy in Lesvos and spent around a year living on the streets before she was finally rescued and offered a foster home on the island. She is a very special and loyal dog and sadly she is now looking for a new home due to the arrival of a new baby. Tilley has such a lot of love to give and has proved to be a wonderful companion for her current family, but unfortunately they just don't feel they can offer her the home she needs once the baby has arrived.
Tilley is a very affectionate dog. She will give kisses if asked and she loves being around cats. Ever since Tilley was a puppy she has had a lot of exposure to cats so we can confirm she can live alongside them harmoniously. Although Tilley can be nervous in certain situations she has gained confidence since coming to live in the UK and she always seeks reassurance from her owners.
Tilley loves to sunbathe, swim, and her favourite treat is cheese. Although she enjoys running off when on walks to chase squirrels and ducks her need for reassurance from her owners means she will come back. She absolutely loves a belly rub and will drop like a dead weight to the floor, although she does also do this when she has her harness put on which can be a challenge!
Tilley is nervous of traffic and has absolutely no road sense. She can also be nervous when meeting new dogs and doesn't like her lady bits being sniffed! Over time she does gain confidence with certain dogs but constantly seeks reassurance from her owners. Tilley also struggles to coordinate herself on uncarpeted floors and can crash into things if she is going too fast. She is slightly uncoordinated as it is so the lack of carpet only adds to the problem, but her clumsy charm is ever so endearing.
