From the Foster:

Lillee is the cutest 7 pound nugget that has ever came out of Kentucky. 
She was surrendered by a family with children that didn't have time for her special needs. 
Lillee was born with a condition called megaesophagus which makes her esophagus not function properly. Because of this she will need to be fed slowly in a bailey chair which is a cute doggie highchair that helps her sit up while digesting food. 
She also needs her water to be in the form of jello so she can swallow without choking. 
After her feeding she needs to be held upright for 10 minutes. 
I am looking for a forever family for her that is willing to make this daily/lifetime commitment. 
It really doesn't take that much time and has gotten a lot easier now that I know what works for her. 
Besides that she is a normal little puppy. She is shy at first but warms up. She loves playing with my two resident dogs and her toys. 
She does great with my kids and likes being carried around by them. 
Potty training has been going really good without accidents when on the right schedule. 
She does great being roam free during the day and at night. 
She seldom gets kenneled up but does great when in her kennel. I would love to find her a home where she has the same amount of freedom and won't have a whole lot of kennel time. 
One of my favorite things about her is how excited she gets at feeding time. She will jump up and down in her bailey chair. 
Serious applicants only please.
