Please meet our little Lily. Lily came into RAGOM from a hoarding situation. She is a petite girl who weighs about 38 pounds.

We don't think Lily ever lived inside of a house. She is housebroken, but many other things about living inside have been challenging for her. We have a crate set up for her and leave the door open so she has a safe place to be when she needs it.

Lily has only one toe on her right back foot. She has been limping on that leg, so we took her to the vet. We are in the early stages of figuring out what treatment she may need for that. She is currently on Carprofen to help her in using that leg.

Lily has had several rounds of wormer for hookworms. They have been tough to totally eradicate. She just got done with a treatment, so in a month we will need to retest and see if the wormer was successful.

The things Lily will need in a forever home are a pretty quiet house with no children. Lily startles easily and does not do well with loud voices. When new people come into the house, she does a lot of alert-barking.

Her forever family will need to work with her to desensitize her to various things such as the vacuum. She is very afraid of any vacuum noise. We are using some Tellington Touch and other methods to help Lily along so we can try and get her to relax.

Her forever home will need time and patience to help Lily be the dog we know she can be.
