Lilly is a very sweet, well-mannered girl who had a rough start to life. She was surrendered after being rescued from someone who had tons of dogs, crates on top of crates. She came into IBR very thin, with patches of fur missing as well as ear and eye infections She has been to the vet and is being treated for all these issues, but will require drops in her eyes twice daily for chronic dry eye the rest of her life. She is mostly blind, but does seem to see some shadows and light.
In spite of all this, Lilly is the sweetest girl. She is still a little timid at first, but warms up nicely. She gets around the house fine despite her blindness, but will not go up steps.
Lilly gets along with the other dogs in her foster home, who are all older and laid back. It is unknown how she would do with a younger, more playful dog, as she might be frightened by another dog jumping at her to play. She also does fine with the 4 year old human kid and cats in her foster home.
Because Lilly is so underweight, the vet wants to wait until she gains a little before she goes in for spay surgery. If you have been consideringsponsoring a bulldog, there isn't a better time than now or a better choice than Lilly. She needs a lot of help.
MAY UPDATE: Lilly has really come out of her shell in foster care. She was very timid and shy at first, but no more! She is sweet and loving and wants to be with her people.
Lilly is great with all other dogs she has met, loves cats and is good with all ages of kids, too. She is blind, but her foster mom thinks she can see some shadows and movement. She is completely house trained and crate trained, but does not need to be crated.
Because Lilly came in so underweight, the vet wants to wait until she gains about 5 more pounds before she goes in for spay surgery. If you have been considering sponsoring a bulldog, there isn't a better time than now or a better choice than Lilly. She needs a lot of help.
When Lilly is ready to find her forever home, it will take a special family to understand this sweet, amazing girl. If you think that might be you, please mention her by name when filling out an adoption application.
