Barks and Meows Rescue introduces Lilly. This little gal is just 21lbs and fully grown. She has long legs and a short hair coat. Lilly is just over a year and a half. She was given away to another family when her first family moved away. The new family kept her in a crate in the garage and isolated. This is why she became so timid. Lilly is doing so well in her foster home. She is much more comfortable with being loved and cuddled. She has missed out on so much kind human touch in her most impressionable months and it showed when she arrived. Now she will fall asleep on your chest as soon as you start cuddling her in a chair or on the bed. She looks like she may have some dachshund in her breed mix but she is a Heinz 57. Lilly was too thin upon arrival and does have a very good hound appetite. She eats 3/4 cup twice daily with some canned mixed in. She is housebroken and crate trained but is never crated in her foster home. At night time she sleeps in her foster parent's bed. Lilly is a lover of all dogs and cats. She enjoys their company, which is no surprise for a hound mix. She gets a bit jealous of the other dogs getting attention sometimes but not enough for it to be concerning. She listens very well and loves to go outside, no matter the weather. Our girl is enjoying having company around it all the time, whether it be people or dogs. In the vehicle, Lilly rides very well. She is not leash trained as she is very timid so her new adopters will need to take their time and gain her trust before going out. on quiet streets with her. She does know how to sit for treats as she is very food motivated. The ideal home for Lilly is one with a patient family. She responds quite quickly to being loved upon and cuddled. She needs to learn that is the normal behavior of humans, not a one-off. A family that is a bit more settled and relaxed, where family members are home more often than not would be best. She is extremely gentle in all her mannerisms and in expressing her love. A second dog in the home will get her to bond and trust her family even more quickly than if without. Confidence building will be key in getting her to be the best dog ever. Lilly is spayed, up to date with vaccines, heartworm tested negative, dewormed and microchipped. A fully fenced yeard and a Veterinarian History of Compliance is mandatory in order to apply for our Lilly.
