A beautiful Pit Bull named Lily Bug (aka Bug or Lily) is a super affectionate pup. For months, Marisa, Bug’s mom, thought it was Bug who needed the attention but instead, Marisa learned the true nature of Bug’s heart.

Bug goes to the office with Marisa and the staff loves her! Who can blame them, right? Amazingly, Lily Bug can sense when a coworker is having a rough time or feels stressed and will target them for hugs and some quality hangout time.

Marisa is so grateful for Lily Bug. She makes sure she’s rewarded for her selfless heart. She takes her to Shake Shack and orders her a Pooch-ini. Well, actually, Bug jumps up to the window and orders it herself. If Shake Shack is closed and they walk past it, Bug will insist on waiting there for them to open. Her mom has to drag her away if they don’t open until the next day.

Local residents have come to know Lily Bug as the loving Shake Shack dog and come to see her for their own “Lily Love.” The Pittie lights up people’s lives, and it’s all for them. It blows folks away how a Pit Bull can sense when she is needed.
