This is Lily, a one year old shelter dog.

Based on her features as well as her love of running faster than all the other dogs at the dog park and her high strung personality, the best guess me/my boss could come up with is that she is a husky/whippet mix, or as we affectionately call her, a "whisky".

She is very hyper, but if she gets a ton of exercise, she is a great dog. She is very smart, but hard to train because she has a short attention span and is stubborn. She loves to meet new people and other dogs, and she is claustrophobic. She gets restless easily which most people would mistake as misbehaving, but with proper exercise, does great with cats and even kids.
