“Lily’s Story” is the tale of a Weimaraner, Lily that becomes a search and rescue dog. Lily grows up in Joplin with her best friend and owner, Tara. Tara sees that Lily is smart and has an incredible sniffer! The two become a team, doing their best to help people who are lost or missing loved ones.
One day Lily becomes very sick. She survives a mysterious illness with the help of veterinarians and Tara by her side. Lily’s recovery is a miracle, but her challenges are far from over.
A month later, Joplin is hit by a massive tornado! The search and rescue dog’s bravery and resilience are put to the test as she is called upon to help put her city back together, piece by piece.
This is a story of hope and hometown heroes, celebrating the courageous spirit of one very special dog.
