Lily is an adorable brown dog estimated to be around two years old. The tiny pup weighed only 13 pounds, and her weight might have gone lower. This is because his owner abandoned the faithful pup in the woods in New York, and she was there alone for several weeks without any food.
When a kind woman found Lily, she was sitting on a blue shirt, most likely owned by his owner. There was also a small crate next to her. Her dad must have left the shirt there so that the scent would keep her calm and prevent her from following him as he left. And like the good dog that she is, Lily stayed right where she was.
Taken out of the woods
The woman who found the dog didn’t know what to do. She couldn’t take the dog home, so she returned occasionally to give her some food and water. After talking about it with her family and friends, they contacted a charity group called Animal Lighthouse Rescue.
The New York-based organization gladly agreed to send rescuers and retrieve the abandoned pup. When the rescuers arrived, they found Lily lying on the blue shirt. Her faith never wavered, and she was still waiting for her family to return for her.
Waiting for a new family
The rescuers brought Lily back to their facility, where a vet thoroughly examined her. Thankfully, her time in the open as a homeless dog didn’t affect her health. But because of what she had gone through, the dog was understandably timid. She was confused about her new situation.
The shelter staff is now looking for a new home for her, and they are confident that once she has settled in, she will turn back into the happy pup that she is. Because the dog is very loyal, they know she would be a great addition to any family.
