This beautiful young lady is Lilly, a yellow lab mix that is just around a year old. It was Lilly's lucky day when a rescue in Virginia walked in to her shelter, and pulled her out on the day she was to be euthanized. Lilly then came up to Popcorn Park and we've been loving her ever since! Lilly seems to be a bit of a shy girl when you first meet her, and even cowers a little bit, but once you leash her up and tell her she's going for a walk, the real Lilly comes out! Lilly is such a fun-loving girl that is super-sweet and affectionate. She is very polite and walks well on a leash, and also sits nicely when asked. Lilly absolutely loves to go in our exercise yard and will run and play, but then run up to you and flop on her back for a bellyrub. Lilly gets along with other dogs, but is too excited by cats so it's best she go to a home with no cats. This sweet girl would love a home with a nice yard to run and play in, and an active family that will love and care for her the way she deserves to be loved. Lilly has already got that second chance that she was hoping for, now she just needs the perfect home for her dreams to come true! 2/17/13 File#22281
