Meet Lilly from Crete.
We met Lilly in January this year when we visited a new shelter in Crete. Stuck in a kennel, no walks or love, so awfully sad. Lilly was in a pen with some meaner dogs who when she came for a treat or a cuddle they would bully her away.
Lilly was one of man many dogs in the shelter going crazy with frustration, bad care and boredom. Living in a prison without basic needs. We didn't have the ability to take Lilly then but made her a promise we would not forget her. Lilly is now free of the shelter and in foster, her little tail wagging and enjoying a cosy bed.
Since arriving in the UK Lilly has blossomed. Clean indoors, well mannered, good with other dogs. Loves cuddles and a belly rub. We can see her sad eyes starting to smile.
Lilly is adorable and her only downside is she will chase cats and small furries. But that is her nature.
Lilly will make a happy, loyal addition to any home.
Lilly is fully vaccinated, microchipped and neutered.
We ask our adopters to be 100% sure they are ready to commit to the training and hard work required.
Our foster home has provided the feedback below:
Dog's name: Lilly
Where does Lilly sleep at night
In the lounge, (carpeted) & her bed. Sleeps very well.
How is Lilly with current dogs/animals?
Very good with our old dog but will chase cats.
Is Lilly clean indoors?
Yes, fully clean since arriving. No accidents at all.
Can Lilly be left alone?
Yes, Lilly has been left up to 2 hours, no issues at all.
Is Lilly out on walks?
Yes, 3 times per day, not too far yet, she is building up her fitness as she has lived in a kennel with no walks. But she adores her walks. Loves a good sniff.
How does Lilly walk on the lead?
Fine, doesn't pull too hard but does have a bit of weight behind her, if she wanted to go after a cat, she could give a good tug!
Has Lilly met with other dogs?
Yes met other dogs. Great with our old Collie.
How is Lilly with humans?
So far very good. She's not met any children yet though. But she has such a lovely nature we do not think she has a bad bone in her lovely body.
Have you noticed that Lilly is afraid of any particular things?
Still jumpy with noises, doors etc, but every day getting braver and adapting so well.
Any other useful information.
Early days yet, still a bit nervous/spooked but slowly getting better. Trying to get her to play, don't think she has done before, she's kinda interested in a ball but that's about it so far. Likes company & being stroked - dozes off & starts snoring if you rub her neck, almost like purring!!
What kind of home do you think would be suitable?
Lilly seems to have a prey drive, so no cats or small furries.
Lilly deserves a home where she will get her walks, lots of love and a play in the garden. She is a calm, lovely well behaved girl.
