Adorable, fun and playful Lilly was found as a stray with her brother Ranger. They were scooped up and vetted. Lilly is super social and fun once she gets comfortable. We are guessing that she will weigh in the 50-60 pound range full grown. She is 3-4 mo old now. All dogs in our program are up to date on all their shots, spayed or neutered, and micro chipped. Our dogs are in foster homes which enables us to learn more about them in a home environment. We do not place dogs on a first come first serve basis, but rather to the home best suited for them. An application, adoption fee and contract are required. Please direct all questions to All our dogs can be met with an approved application. Thank you for looking at a rescue dog for your next family member.
