Lily playing with her foster sister.

Lily: 5 Months-Old, 42.6 Lbs and Growing (Lab Rescue will Coordinate Spay with Adopter)

Background: Born October 9, Lily and her sister (recently adopted) came from an "oops" litter and were surrendered to us by the owner of both parents that are Labs, but the pups look mixed so it’s likely they have a different dad. There were six total, and the owner was able to find homes for the other four litter mates.

We picked up the puppies on January 21 and placed them in a foster home. They had not been exposed to anything other than that of their home so the outside world was very new and they, especially Lily, were skittish and quite afraid. But, within a day, they quickly came out of their shells each with their own, sweet personalities. Lily arrived at 28 lbs and has almost doubled her weight in the month she's been with Lab Rescue.

Here's what the foster says:

Lily is a rambunctious pup with tons of energy and lots of love. She is a tall girl. Like any young dog her age, she is curious, mischievous and so cute. Lily has long legs and good sized feet, I have no doubt that she will be a good-sized adult. As young dogs can be, Lily is a cuddler, she will greet her humans as soon as they are near. She will settle down for a nice pet and will enjoy some play time. Lily enjoys playing with other dogs, kids, adults and probably anyone who would be willing to give her a few minutes.

Lily is crate trained and sleeps well through the night. She is both outgoing and sweet.

What the Rep says: We are looking for a home where Lily won't be left alone and one that can commit to training and doggie playgroups! Lily’s sister was recently adopted and Lily does seem a little sad and although she plays with her human and canine foster siblings, she’s been going off and spending time in the crate where she and her sister would often spend time together. Someone who works from home, or is retired would be ideal! We are searching for a family that understands young dogs require a lot of time, patience, and consistency. Lily is not quite house trained yet and is a typical puppy that chews, loves to play, but calms well, too.

Lab rescue pays for all their shots, spay/neuter and microchip. You must go to one of our vets to have the full medical bill taken care of. If you use your vet then only a portion will be paid for. Adoption fee is $450 and spay and neuter deposit is $400

Lily is located in: Oakley.

Our volunteers donate their personal time & phones so please only call during reasonable hours (8am - 8pm). The Rescue Rep identified in the dog posting is the only person with information about the dog - please only contact the designated volunteer. We do call everyone back within 2-3 days so please be patient. We work very hard to make the right matches for the dogs and for the new owners. We get 3-5 dogs per week; we do not have a facility where the dogs are housed, they are in foster homes throughout the Bay Area.
