Lily is a pretty 15 pound Jack Russell-Chihuahua mix. She will be 2 years old in October and is full of fun and loves being outdoors, as shown in her photo.

Lily is a real sweetheart and will be your loyal friend once she knows you. While she is initially nervous around strangers , she quickly warms up to them if shown patience and understanding. One method that has worked has been to hold her when a stranger comes through the door. Then she sniffs the stranger, the stranger pets her and all is well that ends well.

She does well in a crate although I have found that she really doesn’t need to be in one since she is totally housebroken. She knows how to use the dog door and loves spending time out in the backyard chasing the critters out of the yard.

She gets along well with my other dogs (1 large and 3 small) but I don’t know about cats since I don’t currently have any. At any given moment, she can be seen instigating a “chase” through the house with my other dogs. What fun is that! Then they will all collapse in a pile and chew on each other.

If given the opportunity, she will cuddle up with you in bed at night and be quiet as a mouse until you wake up in the morning. She really is a lover!!! At least when it comes to adults. She is a "no kids" dog otherwise because of her previous treatment.

She loves going on walks and does very well on a leash, except when she sees a squirrel or a bird. When that happens, her ears stand up and she looks like she is on a “mission”. Because of this, she must be kept on a leash but will be happy to walk with you for miles if that’s what you want to do.

She begs to be loved. Unfortunately, somewhere along the line, she learned that “mouthing” was OK and a way that she could get attention. Consequently, I am working with her to let her know that this is not OK. Instead, she is learning to turn over and show her belly when she previously would “mouth”. She doesn’t bite; she just nibbles when she can’t control her excitement!!!

Bottom line is that she is a very lovely pooch. Lily is yearning to find her “forever” home, a place where she is be sure that she is loved unconditionally! Her heart is huge and she is looking for you!

Lily has been spayed, vaccinated, microchipped and tested negative for heartworms. Her adoption fee is $250.00.

If you are interested in adopting this cutie, please write us at and ask for an application to adopt. We are a foster-home based organization, and the adoption process starts when you submit your application. Once that has been approved, we can schedule a time for you to meet Lily.
