Lilly's Story...
To meet our sweet Lilly these days, you’d never think she had ever had a care in the world. “The perfect dog” is the way Lilly’s foster mom describes her. Lilly is a very loving, perpetually happy, easy dog to live with. Even though she is blind, Lilly isn’t the least bit concerned about that. She is fearless, navigating her way around her foster home, up and down the staircase, and around the back yard with complete ease. Lilly has no time for anyone’s sympathy. She realizes she is perfect just the way she is. She is house-trained, crate-trained and generally just likes to go with the flow.

That’s the great thing about senior dogs. They have been around the block a time or two and understand what it takes to live peacefully in a household. Seniors like Lilly appreciate the simple things in life: a good nap, a yummy treat, or a good scratch behind the ears from their owner. With seniors, what you see is what you get - no surprises.

Lilly is a delightful girl and the apple of her foster mom’s eyes. To this day, we are baffled as to how her former owners could have turned this precious blind dog out into the street, but this is what happened to Lilly. We rescued Lilly from a local animal shelter, after receiving a desperate plea on her behalf. When Lilly left the shelter with her foster mom, her tail was wagging the entire time. She was more than happy to turn over a new leaf and trusted her foster mom from the beginning. Dogs are amazingly resilient and Lilly’s willingness to love seems to know no bounds.

Judging from the animal shelter’s estimate on Lilly’s age, she is about 11 or 12 years young. She is perfectly portable at about 12 to 13 lbs. Lilly is in excellent health and has no plans to slow down any time soon. She is spayed, current on shots, microchipped, heartworm-negative and is current on monthly heartworm preventative. Lilly has also had her teeth cleaned. Our $175 adoption fee helps offset the cost of Lilly’s vet visit.

We know that most people are looking for puppies or younger dogs and that many people are hesitant to adopt a dog who has more years behind her than ahead of her. But we have to believe that there is a special somebody out there for Lilly - someone who will give this precious girl lots of love and take good care of her. Someone who is not afraid to open their heart to a senior dog. If you would like to give Lilly a loving, forever home, we invite you to complete our adoption application today: href="http://www.tassieshope.org/adoptionapplication.shtml">

Why Adoption is a Great Option

Lilly, a Carrollton Chihuahua/Terrier (Unknown Type, Small) dog was adopted! Here's how you can benefit by looking at adoption as an option to buying a Chihuahua/Terrier (Unknown Type, Small) for sale in Carrollton, or seeking a Chihuahua/Terrier (Unknown Type, Small) dog from a breeder in Carrollton.

  1. Rescues and shelter volunteers in Carrollton already know the personality and tendencies of their pets. This means they can match you with the right pet. That will makes it much easier transition to owning a pet for yourself and your new pet.
  2. On average adoption fees are much less than you'd pay a Carrollton breeder, or pet store. Plus most often rescue pets have already been to the veterinarian for a check-up, had a round of vaccinations, and are spayed or neutered. That is a lot of savings!
  3. You will become a hero, and give a needy dog or cat a loving home. In fact, there are even Chihuahua/Terrier (Unknown Type, Small) breeders who help with Chihuahua/Terrier (Unknown Type, Small) rescue. One puppy or kitten adopted in Carrollton paves the way for another one to be saved.
