Tail-waggers of the week: Frida & Lily

Meet a couple of the many great companions available at our local animal rescue groups:  Frida and Lily


Meet Frida Mae.  This 7 - 8-year-old frisky girl is probably a mix of Basenji and something else (Boxer? Heeler?). Whatever the breed mix is, the combination results in a really great dog! At 38 pounds we think she is the perfect size. Frida believes that is the perfect size, too—for your lap.

Frida Mae not only listens to commands,  but actually follows them. She also seems to be fine with other dogs, but would probably do best with a larger male. Her interests include chasing lizards and other skittery creatures, joining in with two of our other dogs that have the same interest, and getting lots of exercise. She will need a back yard with a superior fence/wall and gates, which she cannot jump over, dig under, or in any other way escape (because the lizards CAN and do escape, before she thinks the party is over!) 

Frida sleeps well in a cozy, covered crate, but would love to sleep in the same bed as her owner, if possible. Her nature, indoors is much more sedate, preferring to politely share the sofa while watching tv or snoozing.  When asked what her preferences are for a new home, she says, “Lots of love and lots of treats.” 

Frida is spayed, microchipped and current on vaccinations. Her adoption fee is $150 and her license transfer is $11.

Lily is a fun, loving, 10 pound Chihuahua mix who is around 10-years-old. She’s confident around dogs of all sizes and fine with cats. Lilly is also crate and potty trained.

Lily has some medical problems — but nothing that slows her down — not even a little. Lily is being treated for Valley fever, uses eye drops and does very well on the food she is currently eating as it keeps her skin and fur very healthy and smooth and silky. Lily’s Valley fever was left untreated so long that a couple of her vertebra were permanently damaged, so it’s best she be in a home with a low to mid-level energy. Although she sometimes disagrees, rough horseplay with others and jumping off tall things are not something she should do.

Lilly loves to be the queen of the home so honestly if she can find a human to snuggle with and adore on that would be perfect for her. She does well in the car as well. Overall Lily will do great as a companion, can be housed comfortably with another easy going dog and a cat. That can certainly be a great combination for such a wonderful girl.

Lily is spayed, microchipped and current on vaccinations. Her adoption fee is $150 and her license transfer is $11.

Save a life

Most Tucson rescues are small, volunteer-based non-profit groups who rely on the community to fulfill their mission to save animals lives. Not only do they count on donations from the public to cover costs, they depend on people who are willing to open their hearts and homes to needy animals until they are ready for adoption. If you are interested in saving a life by becoming a foster, you can let local rescues know by registering on their individual websites or at Saferlifeline.org.
