Wiggle - Day 1,257

Yesterday I was looking on the Labrador Rescue South East & Central Facebook page and this gorgeous girl caught my eye:



Her write up says: "This lovely girl is Lily who is three years old and spayed. Lily is a very uncomfortable girl at the moment as she has very itchy skin due to allergies which has made her lose her fur from scratching. She is currently on treatment to try and settle this down and make her more comfortable. Lily has lived with small children and is wonderful around them, she also has lived with another dog.

Our helper described her as the 'perfect dog and an absolute sweetheart'. Lily will need a home who are prepared to follow the instructions given by the vet to the letter. She can only be fed her special food and is currently attending the vet for anti allergy injections on a regular basis. Hopefully, once these start to work, the visits will get less and less until hopefully her condition is under control. Lily did have a problem with her hips when she was little but has not had any trouble now for over a year. This side of things we believe can be managed by keeping her weight strictly under control, managed regular exercise and perhaps a supplement for her joints-hydrotherapy would be great idea also!

All in all Lily is a wonderful, kind girl who really does deserve a lovely home where someone is prepared to get her skin under control. We have had many dogs through Labrador Rescue with a similar problem to Lily (Wiggle to name a famous one!), and they have proved that given correct treatment, and with patience they can live a much more comfortable life.

The Charity will continue to assist in funding treatment for Lily's skin in her new home. If you would like a chat about the lovely Lily please contact Barbara 01234 831854 or Jacky 07736 791899"

She sounds so sweet and with skin problems no worse than Wiggle. We're keeping fingers and paws crossed that Lily finds her special forever home very soon!

Wiggle is an excellent example of what great payback is to take care of a Lab in need. Once they are in shape is just a love fest for years to come.
I hope Lily finds somebody in need of sharing some love.
