We'll be the first to say that all of our dogs up for adoption are special. They really are. And that includes Lily, a special girl who needs a special home.
Lily is blind, not 100%, but significantly visually impaired. She is in a foster home now, but she's eagerly looking for her forever home.
Lily is about three months old and has a long life ahead of her. But we want to make sure that the right family adopts her. A family who can be patient with her disability and give her all of the love and attention she deserves. Just like any dog, Lily deserves a forever home. She's loyal, loving and ready to make a special family very happy. We think she'd do especially well in a family that might already have one dog so she has a companion.
We recently asked her foster family to tell us more about Lily and here are some details she sent us:
- In general, Lily behaves like any normal puppy. She chases my dogs everywhere. She loves to play with Luna, the pitbull. They often play tug of war.
- She is able to jump on our couch, and she has figured out that she needs to walk to either end where the arm rest is to jump off so she won't hit the coffee table on the way down. She can jump on an average height bed. When she jumps down, she leaps way out and looks kind of like a flying squirrel!
- She knows how to use our dog doors to get outside. We have two, one into the garage and one in the garage to make it all the way out. She figured this one out just by following the other dogs in a couple of days. She could find the water in the kitchen and outside on her own within two days.
- When it is meal time, she waits in the spot where I always put her food. She is mostly house trained, but she is still young so that doesn't seem unusual.
- She does understand "no" and listens very well.
- She doesn't bark at all even when she hears the other dogs barking. She loves playing with my dogs, but she also enjoys spending time in the back yard alone, exploring and laying in the sun.
- She unhappily goes in her crate, but we are working on that.
- She is a funny little thing and it's so cute when you call her name and she cocks her head to one side and looks directly over your head! She's curious and mischievous, like all puppies.
If you're intereseted in adopting Lily or know someone who might be, please let us know. Let's all work together to find Lily the loving, forever home she deserves!
