That day came when David Lanteigne rescued her for his mom. Christine Spain had suffered from alcoholism and depression, but when Lilly came into her life, she made great strides in her recovery.
But then Spain got some bad family news and she sadly relapsed.
While Lilly and her mom were out on a walk one evening, Spain passed out some railroad tracks. As a train approached, Lilly did the only thing she knew would save her owner…she dragged her off the tracks.
Unfortunately, Lilly sustained debilitating injuries when she took the brunt of the train’s hit.
