Not long ago, a young dog was discarded in the woods by her former owner…the person that abandoned her walked away, leaving behind a crate and an old shirt. The abandoned dog, dubbed “Lily,” no longer had her person, but she did have that individual’s scent and in an effort to be close to that person, she laid down on the shirt and waited…hoping against hope, that her owner would come back.
On September 12, Animal Lighthouse Rescue, explained:
Lily was dumped by her previous owner in the woods. The owner left a crate, and a tee shirt next to the crate. Lily, being the good girl that she is, stayed where her owner left her, waiting for him to come back. Which he never did.
The rescue group added:
A woman found lily and had been leaving food for her. When we went to go rescue Lily, she was still laying on the shirt, where she had been for weeks.
Fortunately the two-year-old dog is no longer sitting in the woods alone – waiting for a person who is not returning. Today, she is with the rescue group who describes her as “amazingly sweet,” and a snuggler who is great with other dogs and adoring of people. Though Lily likes small children, they tend to frighten her. The rescue group is hopeful that Lily’s timid nature will fade as she learns to trust and feel safe.

(According to the rescue group, Lily was found in Puerto Rico, but she has been flown to New York City to be adopted to a new owner)
