Our brave foster greyhound: Lilly's story

Lilly The Little Tiger :)

We are currently fostering a very special greyhound: lovely 9yr old Lilly. 
Lilly is a refugee from Christchurch -her parents, an elderly couple, lost their home and everything they owned in the earthquake, and had to move to Auckland to stay with relatives. They were unable to take Lilly with them -so she was uplifted to Wellington, to a boarding kennel which offered temporary accomodation for earthquake-affected pets.
It is quite heartbreaking as Lilly was with her parents for years - they adopted her when she was 2-3 years old.

The owner of the temporary boarding kennel was trying to find a forever home for Lilly - so Claire ( Indie's and Romy's Mum) and myself decided to foster Lilly, while she waits for her entry to GAP. :)

Lilly stayed with Claire for a while, and then she came here to Feilding, to join our other foster greyhound Hugo, and of course Louie and Lucy :)

For a doggie that has been through so much - Lilly is the bravest and so wise. In her eyes, you can see she does not want to be any trouble, and is so grateful for everything. We teared up a few times watching Lilly being so wonderful with Louie, Lucy and Hugo.
She is well settled with our pack now -she has been here a few weeks. She loves all other dogs, people, kids, everyone. She is an absolute sweetie:  lovely on the lead, beautifully housetrained, never had an accident inside, never put a foot wrong - absolutely wonderful dog :)

Despite being 9, she is in perfect health, even her teeth are absolutely perfect. Her parents took great care of her :) Her coloring is lovely, she looks like a tiger and has the softest coat :)
We hope Lilly will find wonderful forever home -she so deserves it!  Some more pictures of beautiful Lilly below:
