Humane Society’s Pet of the Week: Meet Lilly

Humane Society’s Pet of the Week: Meet Lilly Humane Society of West Alabama

Miss Lilly is a 5-year-old female terrier/hound mix. This adorable dog has quite a story, and she is this week’s Humane Society of West Alabama Pet of the Week.

Lilly is a medium size dog, weighing about 40 pounds, but she needs to lose a couple of pounds. Poor Lilly was found wandering around highway 43N where she had been roaming the area for about 10 days – and no one knew who she belonged to. So, the HSWA guesses she was probably dumped. How someone could do that to this sweet, loving dog?  

Miss Lilly - isn't she gorgeous?!

The Humane Society of West Alabama adopted out Lilly 4 years ago, but she was returned because the owners have since had 2 children and said they just don’t have time for her now. She was pretty much put in the back yard and got bored after being used to being inside a lot and with another dog. They brought the other dog back earlier this year, and this left poor Lilly alone with no one to play with and give her much attention. They thought it would be best for her to be in a home where she will get attention, be inside more with her folks, and maybe have a play companion.

Lilly is pretty calm and laid back. She loves attention and loves to be around people. She is playful, and seems to do well with other dogs. Lilly should be fine with children, 10 and up. She will require a fenced-in yard to make sure she doesn't take off after a scent and not find her way back. Lilly has started on her crate training. She is up to date on her vet care, spayed, and is heartworm negative. She is on heart worm and flea/tick prevention. Please call 205-554-0011 or visit to request an appointment to meet the HSWA’s available animals.
