On April 15, 2018, Brian and I picked up our first Pointer Rescue, Org foster dog, Lilly.
Lilly is an orange and white English Pointer, and was found as a stray in Tennessee. This (approximately) 2-year old Pointer ended up in a very urgent situation in an over-full kill-shelter. Luckily , Pointer Rescue stepped in to help her!
These are Lilly’s shelter intake photos:

Welcome to your foster home and the start of a new life, Lilly!
Lilly was THE sweetest dog! She was an extremely easy foster, as she had no issues being in a crate, was dog friendly, and learned commands quickly. We did have to work very hard to slowly add some healthy weight to her, as by the time she got to us, she was very thin.

Lilly was very thin when we picked her up!
Lilly was so broken and neglected when she arrived … but the “after” results in a photo and what we see person are an amazing transformation. It’s mind boggling to me how people can mistreat animals. The fact that these dogs can love and trust humans again after all they’ve been through just proves to me what amazing souls they are! We are so happy we were able to help Lilly, but even more honored that we got to call her family for a temporary time.
