Lily is around 9 years old and was found on the side of the road with a broken leg and some serious road rash. Luckily, she was found by a vet who runs an animal sanctuary, so she quickly received the surgery she needed for her broken leg. She also needs to be spade and have a mammary tumor removed when she recovers from her leg surgery.
We believe she was abandoned quite some time ago and has been surviving on her own. She was very nervous at first, and she would startle easily. We just kept giving her love and now she is far less jumpy and wants to be next to someone all the time. She is becoming a huge cuddle bug and is very sweet and gentle
She has done well with other dogs, but seems quite scared of cats. Although she is getting better and might be ok with them if a patient person worked with her.
She is presently in a kennel for much of the day as we are trying to limit her activity after surgery. This makes her rather unhappy as she wants to be hanging out with her new friends. We think she might have some separation anxiety, but we found that being with the other dog that lives at the sanctuary is enough to keep her company.
We feel Lily would do well in a quiet home with one or two older dogs, and people who have the patience to help her get over her trust issues. Contact: Jack.Odinsen@gmail.com or (971) 320-0500.
