Saturday and Sunday – October 19 and 20, 2013 – Lily and Leo were 7 month old littermates who came into rescue after being pulled from a shelter in Arkansas. Leo’s leg was broken, but with the fantastic work of his foster mom, Marie Stacks in Little Rock, he had healed and was ready to go to his forever home in Florida with Matthew Willey.
Lily was fostered by John Segars in Pine Bluff. She is described as a super sweet cuddle bug who is full of typical Malinois puppy energy.
Lily and Leo were both headed to Florida, so they began the transport together. Their drivers were Marie Stacks, John Segars, Tammy Culverhouse, John and Nadia Miller, Robert and Karen McGuigan (Lily’s new mom and dad), Mickey Tener, Bonnie Kisko and Larry Willey (Leo’s new family). A huge thank you to all those who touched these sweeties on transport, their foster families and a big thank you to John and Nadia Miller who took a 325 mile leg along with Mickey Tener who took a 334 mile leg and also overnighted Leo on Saturday night. THANK YOU!!!
This team made it look easy, great communication and superior handling, keeping Lily and Leo relaxed and comfortable on their long trip – the dogs did well and everyone enjoyed themselves. Leo did have a bit of a fright when confronted with the biggest dog he had ever seen (okay, it was a horse!) but this weekend was all about the adventure and the forever homes waiting for them.
Update: Both Leo and Lily have done very well in their new homes. This is Lily, so very happy with her new family.
