Lily has finally found a home! She has stayed in California and has a small girl to call her own. Lily, even though she was the most "normal", psychologically, of all the dogs that were seized from a single breeder in LA County almost a year ago, also turned out to have the worst health problems, due to a botched debarking. After Dr. Aiken, who has helped many of our rescues, operated on her to remove massive amounts of scar tissue and to reconstruct her trachea, Lily became a new dog. We think Lily is going to have a very good life with her new family.
We were wrong. Lily was returned after about a year. But she was lucky enough to be adopted by the wonderful people who had had Babar and now Kody (and later Xander as well) and went to her true home.
