48323 – Lucy
Why choose me?
Update 1/5: Lucy and Dane are now playmates! These two goofy pups are a lot of fun!
Update 1/4: Lucy had an eleven year old visitor, and she was great with him! They both had a super time. She’s such a playful, happy dog, I can see why she and kids would get along so well. She’s also a sweetie who really responds to attention and love.
Update 1/3: Lucy and I have a game that we both enjoy. She LOVES toys, so after a quick run around the interaction pen, she’ll hop up on the picnic table and wait for me to throw a toy for her. Once I do, she leaps from the table and charges after it. After tossing it around, she hops back on the table, lies down, and waits for me to throw the toy again. We play this over and over, and sometimes I’ll give her a treat for a reward. Lucy is a sweet, fun dog. She had a rough life before coming to the pound and is just now finding out what it’s like to play and be loved. It’s time that she found her forever home where the love and good times she’s come to know can continue.
Update 12/22: Thanks to donations to the Spay/Neuter Fund, Lucy is spayed and up-to-date on her basic vaccinations!
Update 12/12: Lucy was in the interaction pen next to me today running, playing, stopping for pets and love, and having a grand time. I loved watching her have so much fun. I asked the volunteer if he had any difficulty getting her to leave her kennel, and he said that at first she hid in the back so he sat in her run with her until she was ready to join him. Lucy is definitely making progress, and boy is it worth it! She’s so full of joy once she’s in an interaction pen!
Lucy is a beautiful, sweet girl, but when you stand at the front of her kennel, she’s frightened and hides in the back of her run and barks. If you ask a staff member to take her out for you, there’s no problem. Once we were outside, Lucy forgot all about being scared and loved being in the interaction pen. She enjoyed being petted and especially liked watching other dogs. I imagine the more she leaves her kennel and finds out how much fun she can have, the easier it will be for her to take that first step. Lucy is already microchipped and up-to-date on her vaccinations. If she’s unsure about leaving her run, just ask for help at the front desk. Once she’s with you, you’ll find out what a sweet girl Lucy really is.
