At the young age of three months, a little puppy named Lily was rescued from Staten Island. She was kept outside all the time in her New York home and needed someone to bring her indoors and love her. The Fur Friends in Need rescue group saved her and placed her in a foster home. Her foster family (and foster doggy siblings) fell in love with her big brown eyes and sweet puppy personality. She did great in the foster home but was quickly adopted just a few months later into what they thought was her forever home. However, that was not the case.
Just five months later, Lily was returned to her foster home and the search for a forever home started again. When she arrived in her adopted home, she seemed like the perfect dog. She got along with her doggy sibling, but then Lily began showing aggression toward other dogs. Her family wasn’t sure what to do or how to handle the behavior. Instead of involving a trainer or seeking help, the family let her run loose and then eventually decided to give her back.
Lily is back with her foster family and is doing well, but desperately needs a home where she can be the only dog in the house. Lily is a year old now and still has lots of energy, but loves to be around her people. They call her a “Velcro dog” because she needs to be next to people at all times. While Lily was great with her foster siblings as a puppy, she needs to wear a muzzle around them now when playing or being near them due to her aggression issues. She is playful and relaxed with the muzzle however, but it’s not an ideal situation for her to be muzzled or crated while at home. Lily is also in dog training to work on her issues. She needs a home where she is the only dog and where she will be given plenty of opportunities to be active and exercise.
