Lily the blind Great Dane and her companion Maddison find a new home

Lily the blind Great Dane and her companion Maddison find a new home November 3, 2011
Lily and Maddison have found a loving forever home!

Don’t you just love stories with happy endings? I told you last week about Lily and Maddison, two Great Danes in the United Kingdom looking for forever homes. There was one small problem: Lily is blind, afterdoctors removed her eyes after she developed a condition called entropion. Maddison is her constant companion in life, making is possible for Lily to get around.

Dogs Trust, the UK’s largest dog welfare charity, was faced with the challenge of not only placing two very large dogs but one with special needs. And they needed to find a new home together.

The Daily Mail reports that this story has a happy ending: the Williams family in Crewe, Cheshire, UK has given the pair of gentle Great Danes a new home.

The Dogs Trust received 2,000 responses to their plea for a home for Lily and Maddison. But Anne Williams, 52, a business manager for an insurance company, and her husband Len, 53, a retired fireman, were the perfect match. Anne tells the Daily Mail that they’ve always had two dogs and they live in the country. Lily and Maddison can also look forward to holidays in France and the Lake District.

You can read the entire story in the Daily Mail. And if Lily and Maddison touched your heart, why not visit your local animal shelter? There are lots of dogs and cats looking for forever homes!
