Lilly is my little rescue dog. Looking at her Today you would never know she had such a rough start. Lilly was a little stray living on the streets and not doing well.
Lilly was hit by a car and fortunately, for her, she was picked up by a volunteer with the SPCA. The volunteer was taking the injured puppy to the local Veterinary Office to be euthanized. Lilly had been hit in the face and suffered a broken nose, some road rash, and was very malnourished. Even though she was in pain she was wagging her tail and giving kisses. Her wagging tail saved her life! The Veterinarian decided to give her a chance and sent this picture to me.
I had lost my best friend Gracie, another rescue, a few months earlier and had said “no more dogs.” It took me about 3 minutes to name the scrawnie puppy Lilly and adopt her!
When I brought her home, she came in the house, stole our Rottie’s toy and jumped up on the couch! They’ve been great friends from the start.
The Veterinarian thought she was about 4 months old, she was so painfully thin, just skin and bones, it turns out she was probably over six months old. I started bringing her to work with me so I could feed her every couple of hours. I’ve had Lilly for over a year now, she’s filled out and looking beautiful. She still comes to work with me everyday, she runs through the building, greeting everyone, and rolling over for a belly rub! Her joyful, tail wagging “Good Morning” is a great way to start the day.
Lilly has found her “Forever Home” and I’m sure glad it’s with me!
