Meet Lily!

Lily is lively & energetic, especially when she is taken outside. Inside, her favorite place to be is in your lap. When she's not in your lap, she will be following you around. She's starved for attention but with her sweet personality and cute expressions, it's easy to give her lots of attention. She's very good natured & does not get upset even if you mess with her while she's eating. She enjoys being brushed & combed and will gladly lay there while you do it.

You can see in her eyes that she wants to please and she responds very well to her name. She's a fast learner. After only 3 days in her foster home she's pretty much potty trained, which is good considering that for most of the last 3 months she's been either at a shelter or boarded at a kennel.

Lily weighs 12 3/4 lbs. She has been given all her vaccinations & dewormed. She tested negative for heartworm & is on preventative and has been spayed & micro chipped on 5/26/04. She's in healthy condition with good skin & teeth, and a shiny coat. The vet estimated her to be about 4 years old. Lily is presently in ShihTzu rescue but we think she looks like a Brussels Griffon/Yorkie mix. The vet also thought that she looked part Brussels Griffon.

Lily is with LONE STAR Shih Tzu & Lhasa Apso Rescue in Dallas/Ft. Worth, TX. If you are interested in learning more about Lily you may contact them at marilymar@msn.com. If you are interested in adoption you may fill out their adoption application.

Lily has been Adopted!

A note from Lily's new mom:
August 25, 2004

The little girl is doing great. She seems to adapt quickly to different situations. I took her to the office today and she helped me on the computer...with her body in my lap and her head on the desk. She was snoring away! Everybody loved her and she had a great time. She's eating well and of course wants more...has even tried to get into Hershey's food. I've started working with her on all the jumping and she catches on really quickly. I've been using some intermittent reinforcement with food and have gotten to where she will now accept just praise for sitting down. She is really quite a bright kid.

She's has found a stuffed animal in Hershey's box of toys that she has taken up with. She's pretty good at retrieving and letting me have it back. I haven't been able to let her run loose in the back yard yet. She can get her head through the fence...don't think she can get the body through, but certainly don't want to take a chance. We'll get some mesh over the weekend and take care of that though.

Overall, she's doing great and fitting right in....seems like she's been here forever. I'll try to keep you updated occasionally.

Take care,
