Lily Update 11/30/2016: Lily is ready to entertain applications! She has recovered from her pneumonia, and has learned a bunch of new skills! She will go to the door when she has to go out (she is still crated when unsupervised), She LOVES to play and romp with another dog or children. Lily loves to be in the center of the action!
Lily is one of three girls from a puppy mill in Southern Missouri. The puppy miller decided it was too difficult to raise Bulldogs and had changed to another breed...the Bulldogs had to go and if they had to be outside in 100 degree weather, oh well.
Lily is very sweet, is good in the crate, gets along with everyone; other dogs, cats, children, etc. She is also very stubborn, She is doing much better now and she will let you know when she needs to go out. She doesn't know much, but is adjusting well. She does need to be watched until she is totally reliable on the house training, but she is learning quickly.
Lily had some serious surgery in addition to her spay, she had a palate resection and entropion surgery to correct turned in eyelashes. Lily has a non correctable problem with some of the flaps in her throat. She has a good sized trachea, but these flaps are not correctable. She is breathing much better since the surgery, but she did develop pneumonia and refused to take pills orally. She stopped eating and caused us a lot of concern. She is recovering now.
She had puppies 4 days before she came into rescue. Of course the miller kept the puppies (they are $$ you know) and poor Lily had to deal with being full of milk too. She is a funny girl and is easy to bathe, groom and handle. She likes to be petted and is learning to walk on the lead and what the house routine is all about. Since she can bolt if frightened, a fenced yard would be a major positive. She is UTD on vaccinations, HW negative, microchipped and spayed. We think she will do best with another dog.
