    Lily 13's Story . . .

    Original:  “This sweet, fun girl has not set one paw wrong since she came to her foster home.”

    Lily was found as a stray in Georgia and eventually made her way to MAESSR.
    This sweet, fun girl has not set one paw wrong since she came to her foster home. She has been such a good girl.  Housetrained, Lily has great house manners.   She is also crate trained but a crate is not necessary. At night she sleeps on a dog bed beside her foster parents’ bed.

    Good with people, Lily gets so excited when she meets someone that she will put her front feet up on her friend to try to soak up as much love as possible.  She gets along great with the other dogs in her foster home, too.  It had been reported that Lily would guard her food, but that has not been seen in her foster home.  Her foster mom even pets her while she eats.

    Lily loves to play with tennis balls.  She’s also a regular in the kiddie pool in her foster home and just loves playing in the water!  She knows how to have a good time.  Lily rides well in the car and is more than happy to go for a ride anytime her people will let her.

    When Lily first came to her foster home she was very unsure of everything.  Her foster mom started her on an inexpensive supplement for anxiety and it has really helped her to relax and enjoy her new world.  She will be required to stay on the supplement for at least three months after adoption.

    MAESSR is going to require that Lily attend one series of obedience classes within three months of adoption.  This will help with bonding and also will give Lily the confidence she needs.

    Lily did great at the groomer.  She was not really happy with the clippers around her head, but the groomer went slowly and, by the end, Lily was giving her kisses.  Lily did great at the vet, too, and is in good health.

    Are you ready to bring a bouquet of happiness into your family?  Consider adopting Lily!
