Lilly in Bonita Springs, FL

Lilly is a sweet, easygoing 7-year-old girl. She is a lover and a big Cavalier at 24 pounds, but she's not overweight. 

She loves to be next to you and will put her head on your leg, lap or hand and is quite content. She sleeps in bed with her 3 foster Cavalier brother and sisters, although she came from a single dog home her whole life.

She was relinquished to Cavalier Rescue USA because her owner was traveling out of the country extensively for work. Although Lilly seemed a little sad at first, she quickly adapted to her foster home, which includes both Cavaliers and cats, including a deaf little kitten. As far as we know, Lilly had never even seen a cat before, but they all walked over to her and said hello! They touched noses and went on their way! No problem at all.
Healthwise, Lilly has a history of occasional seizures. She saw our neurologist and is now stable with no issues in rescue taking two inexpensive medications twice a day, Phenobarbitol and Levetiracetam. She is otherwise healthy.
Lilly is housebroken and enjoys both the yard and walking on a leash. She walks with her foster brother twice a day and keeps up a good pace. She loves to be brushed and combed. She enjoyed a dog bath in my big sink and loved the blow dryer, especially sitting on my lap the entire time. She enjoys short car rides. Most of all though, this velcro girl loves to be with her person and will be content to be wherever you are!
This sweet girl will be happiest in a home where there is a loving adult home much of the time. She would be happy as an only dog, or with another friendly dog. She's more people centered though and being with people is what makes her most content. She was raised in a home that had a fenced yard, so that is preferred.
