Lily's story

I adopted Lily who was previously known as Libby. Lily was in foster care after being seized by the Blacktown pound. She was severely abused for the first 6 months of her life. She suffered from severe anxiety, to the point she would wet herself and hide under anything she could find in order to feel safe. It took a lot of time and patience but she has come a long way in 3 years, and is now an obedience champion and all around beautiful, happy and outgoing girl.
