We received a call from a shelter about a young
female boxer that was surrendered to their
facility. When she arrived at the shelter she was
completely reactive and scared in her surroundings.
They did not feel they could adopt her out.
After we agreed to take her into our rescue
program, the shelter did a little research and found
out that her previous “owner” had to “go away for a
long time". Lily was left in the care of his
elderly mother, and was kept crated on the back
We had Lily transferred to a vet hospital to get
spayed, heartworm tested, and to update her
inoculations. After her arrival to a safe and
friendly place she was a completely different boxer
girl. She was extremely loving and affectionate.
Below is the first report from Lily's foster
“ I just love Lily. She is such a great dog.
She is completely different from when I picked her
up. Now she is a very confident energetic girl who
just loves attention and playing. It almost seems
like she was just waiting for a chance to be
herself. Thank you for giving me the opportunity to
After three days Lily has settled right in. The shy
and cautious girl has vanished. Lily is full of
personality and has been wonderful to have around.
Lily loves to play with her foster brothers and
sisters ( two boxers and a
lab mix.) She is full of energy and LOVES to
play outside in the fenced yard. She happily shares
her food bowls, treats and toys with whomever wants
Lily seems house trained and knows how to sit and
lay down. She walks well on a leash and is very
friendly to everyone she has met. She loves to
cuddle and her eyes just sparkle when she is being
pet. Lily is a beautiful girl inside and out and
she deserves the very best family. Is that you?”
