Lilly /Largo

Lilly came to us as a nursing mom with 4 puppies  from a hoarding situation..
She had been severely neglected. She had been used to produce puppies for profit  to the detriment of her own health. She hadn’t had a dental, had an ear infection AND…..This  poor girl, also came to us with a huge lump hanging off her neck!
We had to wait until the puppies could take care of themselves before addressing Lilly’s tumor issues.
When the puppies were ready to be adopted, we gave Lilly a little rest then we worked on getting her back to her beautiful healthy self.
She had surgery last week, where we had the lump removed First Thing that weight a half pound.
She was doing so well, we took the opportunity to have her spayed at that time and gave her a dental.
She has drains in her neck, to be taken out this soon.
She has come through everything Beautifully!!!
That being said, Lilly is the sweetest little girl ever!  She’s a beautifully marked black and white Shih Tzu.
She’s thought to be 4yrs old.  She is about 15Lbs.  She has been brought up to date on all her vaccines and is on heartworm prevention.  She is micro chipped and ready for her new forever home.
So far, in her foster home,  she has gotten along with loads of people!  Both kids & adults.  She gets along very well with other dogs and cats too!  She just loves everyone.
And her favorite thing is to just be with you.Lilly loves soft toys !
She is working on her leash skills, but that has been tough without being able to put a color on her just yet.  I’m sure she’ll pick it up quickly once given the opportunity.  And she seems to be doing great on her housetraining.
To adopt Lilly, the first step is to put in an application and the process of meeting her will begin.
