Lilli Mae – special Terrier mix with special diet needs seeks a SPECIAL home that deserves her happy loving presence.

Lilli Mae was just four months old when her foster mom spied her in a local high kill shelter. ALL ears then (and still pretty much that way now!), Julie begged Director Lisa to pull this sweet happy girl. The best description for Lilli Mae is that she is a golden retriever trapped inside a tiny terrier body. She is the happiest pooch on the place—and two other goldens live there, so that’s pretty darn happy!

But once Lilli Mae arrived at her foster home, she started breaking out in bumps (like acne) all over her tummy. While the spots looked awful, they never caused this cheery little puppy one moment’s discomfort. It was amazing to her foster mom that nothing seemed to faze this fearless girl.

A trip to the vet determined that Lilli Mae simply has a food allergy that she should grow out of by the time she reaches adulthood. The vet’s own dog (a beagle) had had the same problem which was resolved by feeding a special Duck and Potato dog food.

Lilli Mae has responded very well to her new diet and to weekly special baths. She is a great eater and has grown to 20 lbs. Lilli Mae never meets a stranger and plays happily with all the dogs and cats in her foster home. She is eager to please and smarter than most kids.

Her forever home will have to commit to keep her on her special diet (strict obedience) until she outgrows the allergy. The food is readily available at Petco (Natural Balance) or at the vet as a prescription diet (Royal Canine).
