Lilly #13 Yellow Labrador Retriever Female 6 Years Old ID#3204
Meet Lilly! Lilly left her breeding farm to join Brookline. She’s a very pretty and is good with dogs and kids, but shy of strangers. She just needs a little time to figure out the wonderful changes coming in her life. Please read her blog from the bottom up to learn more about her time in foster care.

Lilly is a 6 year old dog who was rescued from a breeding farm in Pennsylvania on the day before Thanksgiving. When Lilly was brought to her foster home she was shy and nervous. She huddled by the front door for the first several hours. It didn’t take Lilly long to warm up though! In just a few days she was cuddling up on the couch with the family and resident dogs.
Lilly currently lives with her foster mom and dad, two children, two other dogs and two cats. She loves everyone! She plays with the 4 year old dog and gives respectful space to the senior dog. She enjoys wrestling with her 11 year old human foster brother. Lilly is interested in the cats in the home and sometimes gives them a little chase. She will bump her snout into them but never puts her teeth on them. She would do well with cats who are used to dogs.
Lilly took a few weeks to learn the potty routine but is not totally housebroken. She knows a few basic commands such as “sit” and “stay” and comes when called. She loves to take walks around the neighborhood and park and only pulls slightly when she sees something interesting or wants to be the leader when walking with her doggie foster siblings.
Lilly absolutely loves to snuggle on the couch and cuddle up in bed with you. She makes a contented whining sound when she’s comfy and happy. She also likes to “talk” to you when she gets excited. Lilly has the typical activity level for a 6 year old dog. She enjoys playtime but settles easily and sleeps much of the day. She has free run of the house with the other dogs and has never needed to be crated. This girl could easily be named “Mary” because she is “practically perfect in every way”!

Lilly was spayed on 12/28/23 and is recovering beautifully.She is up and moving with no issue and is loving long walks with her foster brother and sister dogs. She loves leading the way with the pack!Once Lilly is finished her antibiotics and has her staples removed she will be available! While we are excited for her, we will be sad to let her go.She has very easily integrated into the family and is a different dog from the sad and scared girl we picked up in November. A little TLC went a LONG way with this sweet girl!

Lilly is acclimating to home life very nicely. She has started learning how to play with her doggy foster brother and has shown a bit more interest in the cats, but is still being gentle with them.She loves all humans and will snuggle up to anyone who is willing. Lilly’s personality is really starting to show as she likes to “talk” to you when she wants something. She is starting to learn the household routines, and we are continuing to work on house training.Lilly’s vet appointment is scheduled to get her updated on all of her shots and for her pre-spay bloodwork. We expect her to be available for adoption by the new year.

Lilly has been with us since the night before Thanksgiving.
She was very nervous and confused at first but had been quickly settling in. She does a lot of sleeping to recover from the stress of the big change in her life but she is an absolute sweetheart and cuddle bug! Lilly is doing very well with the other dogs, cats and kids in the house. She is enjoying exploring the back yard and going on walks. I am sure she will gain her confidence and show us more of her personality in no time!
