Lily is a female German shepherd who is estimated to be about 2-3 years old. She, along with 40 other German shepherds, were found living in horrific conditions in a home in Memphis, TN. Rescuers brought them to safety and 7 of the shepherds came to us at Char-Wills German Shepherd Rescue. We have no history on these dogs, but they are settling in at our rescue kennel and their personalities are shining through. They are almost ready to find their forever homes. Meet & Greets are available now, and the dogs can go home with their new families after they are spayed & neutered. Each dog will need a family with patience and understanding, as they acclimate to home life. It takes some dogs a long time to realize that they are now safe and their next meal is guaranteed. They must not be expected to acclimate immediately - the process often takes at least a few months.
Lily is a strong young girl! Despite surviving in unimaginable conditions, Lily holds her head high and is friendly with everyone she meets. She gets along with the friendly male shepherds here, and also met children ages 7 & up and was good with all of them. Soon, we will be testing her with our resident kitty Tony & update her info. Lily is 78lbs of pure, sleek muscle and it's obvious when you take her for a walk as she does tend to pull a lot. She has a lot of energy to burn, but is getting better each day as volunteers work with her on leash-manners. In her eyes, you see the desire to please, the desire to be loved, the desire to belong to someone. Lily will not be able to be spayed for a few weeks, but she is available for Meet & Greets now.
Lily has been micro-chipped, de-wormed, and vaccinated. She is on Flea/Tick/HW prevention, and will be spayed prior to adoption. Lily is Heartworm Negative.
