My name is Tilley. I am a gentle giant (85 lbs) who is used to using a pet door to be inside or outside as I choose. I don’t bark much, but I do like to chase cats (just for fun). I love to chase balls and play with smaller dogs. I know how to sit, sit-up and sometimes stay, but I have a lot of happy and it is hard to sit still at times. I am used to being home alone while my family is at work. Now they are retired & have family health reasons to travel much more. They don’t want to leave me home alone with only someone coming to feed & play with me a couple of times each day. I easily get into the car, but I really don’t like to travel. I like to be around people and I am afraid of loud noises (thunder, fireworks, etc). I sleep behind the recliner, or on the couch when I am albe.
