Amaya has had a tough life compared to most kids her age. She faces doctor visits and treatments on a regular basis. But she also has something special that a lot of them don’t: a pint-sized best friend.
Lily Ruby is the name of the teacup Yorkie that now belongs to Amaya, who is faced with a life-threatening liver condition.
"Puppies like to snuggle and give lots of kisses," said Amaya, "I will have her forever to love." But this pooch didn’t just show up one day – it was the cultivation of something much greater: Amaya’s wish. With the help of Subaru of America, Inc. Amaya received the exact pup she had been hoping for.
Lily Ruby is much more than just a dog to Amaya. She is a sense of security and optimism that helps Amaya stay strong day after day. Amaya’s mom, Laurie said, "We face daily obstacles with Amaya’s condition and Lily Ruby has given Amaya a lifted spirit and best friend."
