Lily 7 >Lily {Hound cross}   ADOPTED

I’ve known Lily for quite a while.  I first met her at the Lethbridge Animal Shelter.  She had arrived in early December and was still there when I started volunteering in early January. In early February she had puppies.  She raised her litter while at the shelter and they grew up, and were all quickly adopted. Lily was not.

Every time I went to the shelter, she was there waiting for a home.  She left briefly and I celebrated for her, but then she came back.  Someone didn’t check with their landlord first to see if it was OK for them to have a dog.  Apparently it wasn’t.  So after 5 months of living at the shelter, Lily was still waiting for someone to adopt her.

Then this past Thursday, she was adopted again!  Yippee for Lily!

But it wasn’t the happily ever after we were all hoping for.  Her new home had a family emergency that was going to affect their living arrangements and they realized that they wouldn’t be able to keep her.  But there is some good news.  The family who adopted her from the shelter are friends with one of our volunteers so instead of bringing her back to the shelter, they surrendered her to us!  I’m so happy that she is finally in a home environment and is getting lots of exercise and love, but she still needs to find the forever home she deserves.

So more about Lily….

Lily 9 >Lily {Hound cross}   ADOPTED

Lily is a super fun hound cross.  She is playful, friendly and great with dogs, cats and people.  Lily spent about 5 months at an animal shelter so she has been really enjoying having some room to run. She gets the zoomies a few times a day and you can see the pure joy in every moment of it.

She loves to chew bones and to play with squeaky toys.  She runs around the house shaking her toys and rolls around on the ground playing with them too.  She loves to play with other dogs and enjoys wrestling and chasing them. 

She does have a hound’s bark but she is quiet unless she is excited.  She hasn’t shown any interest in the cat at her foster home and has greeted the children she has met on walks nicely.  She does pretty good on a leash (unless she gets the zoomies!) and has obviously lived in a home before as she knows what it means when you put on your coat and shoes.

For more information on Lily, please contact the Windy City Canine Rescue at info@windycityrescue.com or by calling 403-359-3139.
Our adoption fee allows us to provide the basics for the dogs in our care, but we are always encountering additional expenses (dental work, medicine for illnesses, etc.).  If you would like to help dogs like Lily, but aren’t looking to adopt one at this time, please consider a donation.  Thank you.
