Please help give a warm RAGOM welcome to Lilly, or Miss Lilly, or Lilly-hammer, or Lilly-hamster. She turns her head to all of those, probably thinking to herself, “My name is Lilly...just Lilly, you crazy lady!” We are longtime RAGOM volunteers that moved to Puerto Rico for a work assignment. While leaving work one day, my husband found a litter of 5 puppies left in the parking lot. The mom was nowhere to be found. Naturally, my husband brought them home and we began the rescue process. Lilly started out weighing just 12 pounds, but as of September 23rd, she weighed almost 19 pounds. I guess that’s what a little good food will do to you. She was probably the runt of the litter, as she was definitely the smallest. She is completely up to date on all her shots, including rabies and bordetella as well as Frontline and Heartgard. When we first got the puppies, they all had pretty bad dry skin, but with some medicated shampoo, it cleared up amazingly. Now, they all have hair again!! All the puppies have been spayed/neutered. We were able to find homes for two of the five puppies here in Puerto Rico, but Lilly and her sisters (Juno 14-301 and Isabel 14-302) have hit the jackpot. They got to get on a big plane for a “field trip” to Minnesota where RAGOM will help get them to the forever home that they so deserve!!
Lilly is just as sweet as she can be, especially when she gets some alone time away from her sisters. Everyone needs a break from their siblings every once and a while!! She loves to chase pretty much any toy you throw. Squeaky ones are super fun!! She springs and hops when she hears the ice machine...quite possibly her favorite treat! She would follow her resident foster brother (Patch 10-223, a Black Lab) around the house and try to hang all over him. He’s a good sport. Maybe he remembers what it is like to be a young, courteous dog!! Like most puppies, Lilly is still learning to use her mouth appropriately, as she can be a bit mouthy sometimes, but is easily redirected. She is learning to walk on a leash and use the bathroom on the grass. Lilly sleeps through the night in her crate and while I am away from the house without hardly a peep from her. Lilly is great with kids and dogs. We have not seen her around cats. I think she would be fine, but I’m sure curious. Overall, she is a great puppy that just needs some puppy training. There were definitely some “Oh, she’s my favorite” from some people in our neighborhood.
Once Lilly arrives in Minnesota, she will need to get a microchip, then she’s ready for adoption to her forever home. If you think that might be you, please contact your placement advisor and I’m sure Lilly’s new foster would love to set up a meeting!!
Lilly--Best of luck to you, sweet Lilly. The house is already quiet without you!
Your Puerto Rican Foster Family
