I am looking for a Fila to rescue and give a forever home. 15 years owned by Filas. Here is my situation - and I welcome input. I had two female Filas (5 yr olds) They were sisters. One (Lucy) was born deaf and had other health issues - her sister (Hanna) was her service dog and loved her very deeply. Lucy has just passed away and Hanna is inconsolable. Us too. We want another "child" and companion for Hanna. We live on a farm in Texas - so space is not an issue. No human children. Farm animals.
Hanna is a sweet Fila - but does not pass temperament test (she is a bit shy and reserved). We would like a Fila who is out of the puppy phase and not uber aggressive. This would be our first rescue. Our other Filas have all been raised with us as puppies - they have all lived long healthy lives - and never been handled to be aggressive ( I think they are just fine on their own).
Thoughts and input - please.
