Lilo

Sex: Female
Breed: Staffordshire Bull Terrier
Age: 3 years old


Lilo is a 3-year-old Staffordshire bull terrier that was kept as what we call a “backyard” breeder. She birthed countless puppies for her owners, no doubt bringing in a serious amount of cash for said owners. Her owners moved and left her behind. Alone. After years of faithfully providing an income for them. Just left her behind. In the backyard. The landlord eventually had to call animal control to have her removed from the property.

The only evidence that she had had a home was the choke chain collar still around her neck. Lilo found a foster home with Randi and came in full of hope and mega wiggles. Dog kibble in a bowl was a surprising delight each time it was presented to her. Being bathed was a spa like experience, as was rubbing balm into her cracked paws and nose. Air conditioning, quiet surroundings and a plush bed did not go unnoticed or unappreciated.

She is quickly becoming a well-balanced, gently mannered dog and is going to be a HUGE (literally and figuratively) asset to a lucky family someday soon.

Lilo’s precious family cruelly abandoned her, plain and simple. Now that she is a Mutt, she has the power of “Ohana” on her side. Because Ohana means family and family means nobody gets left behind or forgotten. Randi has promised Lilo that she personally will see to it that she is never left behind or forgotten again. Her personality continues to shine. Her newest trick? Holding the leash in her mouth and walking herself. Silly girl!

She does have some nodules in her mammory glands and may need a mastectomy in the near future which we will keep you posted on but all in all she is doing well.
