Meet Lilliana, a beautiful dog who until recently, didn’t have an easy life. For years, she lived in a vacant, wooded lot in San Antonio with other feral dogs, having litter after litter. Various people fed the dogs, but her sad life persisted until last year when a volunteer finally trapped Lilliana and her adult son.
Upon arrival, Lilliana’s front paw was badly infected and she tested positive for heartworms. It turned out she had an aggressive form of cancer and the only way to ensure that it wouldn’t spread further was to amputate her entire leg. Dogs can do very well with three legs, but losing a front leg is harder.
It’s been an adjustment, but she came through the surgery and the heartworm treatment just fine. She now needs to time to heal emotionally. She gets along very well with other dogs and cats. She’s completely non-aggressive and house trained, but she’s afraid of people.
Lilliana needs a quiet place where she can learn to trust humans. She is on the back cover of the next SARA printed newsletter to give her some extra attention.
