Lilly is a 7 year old, 8 lb Chihuahua/Min Pin or Chihuahua/Rat Terrier mix. She was surrendered after a death in the family, and went from being loved, to being tied to a tree and having litters of puppies. She came into rescue with a very serious case of heartworms and intestinal ailments. She is a brave little girl, and made it through the treatments is now healthy and ready to go. Lilly is a sweet & sensitive girl. She craves attention all the time and wants to be right next to you. She is definitely a velcro dog. She gets along with other dogs and cats, but will push any of them out of the way to get a pet! Lilly is crate trained and house trained with a doggy door. She is used to being home during the day while her person goes to work. She enjoys taking a walk before and after work to do her business. She does great on a leash, although on the leash she thinks she is the boss of the neighborhood and will bark at other dogs and people. She is shy at first, and doesn’t like being held tightly by strangers. She’s friendly once she gets to know you. She does NOT seem to like children and would be best in a home without real small kids. She eats 1/4 of a cup of dry kibble twice a day. She has eaten both Fromm Chicken and Nutro Lamb & Rice and has done fine. She eats ravenously and would probably benefit from a slow-feeding bowl to make her slow down. She gets treats after walks and at bedtime. She loves to burrow under a blanket or sheet in her bed, or your bed! Lilly deserves a loving home where she will be cherished. She looks forward to being able to run and play since she’s had to stay calm for two months. She would probably play with another dog if given the chance. She is easy to love.
