The Craigslist ad in KY read “Female Basset Hound, good breeding dog, $25”. Lily was only 3 years old and used for breeding. She had been living in a barn on a hard concrete floor. Her soft white fur was stained on her legs, behind and tail from laying in her own urine and feces and dirt. She was so skinny you could see every rib bone sticking out of her sides. She needed our help.
After she was cared for by a vet and spay, so she wouldn’t have to ever be bred again, she came to NY. She made several trips to the spa to try to make her stained fur white.
