Rescued from a busy road after being dumped and abandoned
Lilly is darling young pup who was abandoned at only 4-5 months of age on a busy road in the Fethiye region.
This little girl suddenly appeared one day on the main road through Patlangic confused, bewildered and pining for her owner.
Fortunately for Lilly a Turkish couple living in a nearby apartment spotted her and took pity on her.
Lilly stayed very close to the spot where she was dumped sitting quietly and waiting for her owners to return.
At night she could be heard by those living nearby pining and howling for them to come back for her.
The Turkish couple kept a close eye on her and they fed her and gave her water.
However, not everyone living nearby was as sympathetic and it was clear she would not be safe just left where she was.
The couple then approached Animal Friends of Turkey and we stepped in to rescue her off the streets.
She has since been found a temporary respite in a foster home in the area while we go through the process of getting her ready to travel to the UK.
Lilly is a small dog weighing only around 8kg. She is very gentle and she responds well to the affection she is now receiving.
She is now around 6 months old and she is likely to be approximately 9-10 months old when she is ready to travel in August or September this year.
Lilly has also been successfully tested around children.
The only missing thing for her now is to find someone with a big enough heart to take her into their home in the UK.
