Arrival Story:
She was rescued from the same puppymill Molly came from. I bought a dog from a woman I thought was a good breeder, but she turned out to be a horrible puppymill. She kept her dogs in cages all the time and never gave them any socialization. When I got to her house I found out what she was but I felt so bad foe Molly I couldn't leave her there to become the next puppy factory. So I bought her anyway. I made calls and tried to find a way to get this woman shut down but I was not successful. Two years later I went into my local petsmart to find a rescue adoption day in progress. There was a sign up asking for donation for the 67 yorkie and silky terrier that had been seized in a puppymill closure. I knew it was the same woman I had already meet so I decided to help. I started a food drive and collected blanket for the rescue then later before the dogs were put up for adoption I got to pick one to adopt. Lily was so afraid of everything it was hard for her to do even simple things. She had never been in a house she had no idea how to go up or down the stairs. How to eat out of a bowl, pee outside. That has been a real challenge. I was ready I knew she would have daily challenges but, she has grown and learned that not everyone is out to hurt her. She is a wonderful dog who has overcome alot.

She graduated at the top of her class in obedience. She is the most well mannered walker in the pack. She loves other dogs but is not so sure about people. I have never had a harder time with any dog. A fearful dog is the hardest to rehabilitate because their fear is crippling to them its one step forward and three steps back. She is almost two now and she can do most things. She has funny little fears that you never expect, like she will not walk over the utility access in the sidewalk. If it is a different texture then the concrete she walks around. Its kind of funny to watch. She still doesn't like men but she is better. She will take treats from the kids and occasionally she will let them pet her for a second. It may not seem like much but for her it is a huge deal.
