Lilly Pad

Hello all you bulldog lovers it’s me Lilly Pad in the house!  I know you might be looking at me and thinking you have seen this face before. Well, maybe.  But it was my daughter Caboose!  Back in September Caboose joined rescue.  And ever since then all I have thought about was me joining rescue to. I was so excited to see Caboose get all the medical help she needed. I watched as she lost weight,  grew stronger and was finally able to run like the wind.  Now it is my turn.  

A couple weeks ago I had puppies during the arctic freeze, and sad to say none of them survived.  With no heat and nothing to keep them warm they were just not strong enough.  Right then and there I knew my days of making babies was over.  I sent a SOS out to rescue, packed my backpack and here I am.  

I went to see Dr. Larsen on Wednesday and I told her to fix me up so I could find my very own sofa.  Well Dr. Larsen said I was running a fever,  my fur was very thin,  and my ears were infected, and I still had stitches in.  And I would be at the clinic for a while. So……I face timed Caboose and told her the good news I was is rescue I and showed her me sitting in Dr. Larsen’s lap and she squealed like a pig!  The best news ever is that in the coming weeks Caboose is coming to see me and I consider that a huge win-win.  I am 3 years old, and I weigh 36 pounds and I am going to just love my new life in rescue!

4/13/21 Update:  She has had a great couple of weeks, exploring the inside of a home and learning to be a loved dog.

Lilly is 3 years old and weighs about 35 lbs. She is definitely the smallest Bulldog our house has ever seen! Foster ma does want to hold her like a baby because no other resident is this tiny! She loves the kisses, snuggles and pets and will stay perfectly still for these activities. Then she is off like lightning, happily running through the house, hoping you will chase her. She keeps us smiling and laughing because she is quite the character.

Because Lilly has only known a life of being a momma, she is learning what it’s like to live just as a member of the family. She knows to do her business when she is outside and we have a parade for her when she does it, but will urinate in her crate every night. This is what she has known for three years and it’s going to take some time for that to stop, if ever. Her forever family will need to be patient with this and give her the grace that she deserves. Foster ma just washes her crate pad and blankets every morning… It’s not a big deal.

Lilly loves her food and is treat motivated, though she prefers to take her treat away from the crowd to enjoy solo. LOL

A home without small children would be best for her because she still startles easily.

Lilly is full of hijinks and fun, loving to steal shoes off your feet and blankets must be taken down to the floor, off the couches. You can’t get mad at her, as she is just so happy! She is getting along very well with all of her foster siblings and will try to engage any of them to play.
