UPDATED BIO 10/24/2010: Lilly is a 6 ½ month old 13 ½ pound Silky/Yorkie girl who is being fostered in Boynton Beach, FL. She was moved because her former foster parents are going out of town. Here is what her new foster mom had to say:
"I have had sweet Lily for a total of 48 hours now, and she has adjusted beautifully. She has a splint on her leg, but it doesn’t slow her down. She loves every person she meets as well as every dog. She played with her foster sister Mollie and her FM’s dog Elvis almost as soon as she got here. She is learning not to pull on her leash and does sit if she knows there is something in it for her. She plays beautifully by herself with toys and balls that she throws around and chases on her own. She loves to give kisses and get them back. She sleeps all night and is housebroken. This morning I was late taking the dogs out; so, I pointed to a wee wee pad and told her to go there and she did!!!!!!! For the most part she would rather be outside to potty and waits till she is taken out. She seems very smart too.
Lily is scheduled to for an x-ray of her poor broken toes on November 4th to see if her splint can come off. She will be available for adoption after that. She loves her dry dog food and eats it when put down in front of her. Just a great little girl. Easy to love. Full of fun. Very playful. Would love a yard to run around in and maybe a fur-brother or sister too!"
UPDATED BIO 10/15/2010: Lily is 7-8 months old and currently weighs 12.1#. She is being fostered in Boynton Beach, FL. Lily came into rescue with a broken foot; after consultation with two vets, it was determined that a splint would be the best course of action for Lily – she will wear this split for 6-8 weeks. On 11/04/2010, Lily’s splint will be removed and an updated x-ray will be taken to see if the fracture(s) are healed. Hopefully, Lily will not need surgery to correct this problem. She is a typical little puppy, very busy and vivacious…..and affectionate. Foster Mom says that Lily loves to cuddle and will calm down quite nicely when asked. Because her foot is still in a splint, her activity level is restricted, but she is like a little horse that is in a corral and can’t wait to get out and run-run-run! She is currently taken outdoors on a leash and FM is working on leash training her. Lily is very, very smart and has already learned the ‘sit’ command – but the housetraining is going a bit slower, although they are working on this as well. The perfect home for Lily would be one in which she had a fenced-in yard to run in, and another companion close to her size and age to play with. Lily gets along very well with other dogs and she hasn’t met a person she doesn’t like. Lily deserves a loving home of her own where she will be a cherished member of the family – do you have room in your home for this little adorable puppy? Lily can be adopted into a home with children aged 10 and older.
INITIAL BIO 09/22/2010: Hi! My name is Lily! I'm the newest baby girl here in Florida! I'm 5 months old (shelter's estimate) and 11.2 lbs. Foster mommy says she thinks I'm a little older.... maybe closer to 7-8 months, but I have an appointment with the Dogtor tomorrow. I bet Dr. Lucy will know!
Well, I am a little girl with a big problem! Do you think you could help me? I have a broken left metacarpal.... do you know what that is? Metacarpals are the bones along the back of the hand in a human..... so my widdle foot is broken. I hope Dr. Lucy can fix it without surgery.... especially because so many of my furfriends in UYR are ringing up BIG bills. Cross your paws for me, OK? So far I like other dogs, I'm playful, I give LOTS of kisses, and I'm cute as a button. I might be a bigger button than the average yorkie, but FM thinks I might be a silky. Again, I'll know more tomorrow :)... You know what they say, "A rose by any other name would still smell as sweet!" Yorkie, Silky. Whatever. I'm still cuuuuute.
OK. Let's keep in touch, OK? I am going to be ready for my FURever home as soon as this whole hand - I mean paw - business is fixed. Licks and wags! - Lily
