“My name is Lily Lou and I am from Highland Home. I am the two-year-old Boston Terrier of Kent and Stacey Perritt. Oranges are my favorite treat but I love all fruits and vegetables. I enjoy fetch,playing with my toys  and car rides. I was adopted after my parents rescued me from the middle of a busy road. I was skinny, filthy and covered in fleas. They took me home to just give me a bath, feed me, and then find my owner, but now I am living the good life in the Perritt household. Boy, am I thankful!”

By the time the Perritts learned that Lily’s prior living arrangements were no longer going to work, they had already fallen in love with the pup and were relieved that they could keep her. According to her owners, Lily Lou likes to express her feelings with “huffs” and other physical and auditory cues, especially when she is annoyed or does not get her way. Lily Lou’s best friend is her deaf bulldog sister, Elly May. The two canines formed an instant bond after Lilly’s rescue and both doggies sleep in a king sized with their human parents every night.
