Lucy! I’m hooooome!!!! Miss Lucy is just about a year old and has a little room to fill out. She weighs roughly 42 lbs and probably won’t exceed 50 lbs. This lab mix is basically the perfect dog – she gets along with and is respectful to her doggy roommates, she isn’t needy, she is the perfect size, and she does great in the car!
Lucy is now housebroken! She doesn’t do a great job at signalling, but she holds it until she gets the chance to go outside. She keeps her crate clean and sleeps through the night. So long as there’s a treat to entice her into her crate, she’s fully crate trained – she might whine for a minute, but settles down quickly. Lucy is a little shy when it comes to new things, but once she is comfortable, she makes friends pretty quick. As long as new people have treats, she knows there is no threat there. And at the dog park, she is a social butterfly! Let’s just say Miss Lucy has become Miss Popular and befriends any and all dogs, very quickly.
Now that Lucy is an avid dog-park visitor, she gets along great with new pups and people! She is very playful but also respectful and gentle. Understanding that not all dogs want to be her friend is important and she’s proven that she’s got that down. Her confidence is also improving! It’s best if you don’t use a vacuum cleaner around her, but oddly enough, she has zero problem with the carpet cleaner and hardwood cleaner… she is most shy when on a leash, but that hardly lasts a couple of seconds now that she trusts Foster Mom. At the dog park, she does great with all the new people! She tends to gravitate towards women but ultimately gets along with everyone now that she knows how loving they all are.
Little Miss Lucy is a pretty laid back pup and would do fine with a nice long walk, some dog-park time or another doggy roommate to play with. Without being demanding, she accepts affection happily once she is used to the person giving it. She does tend to follow Foster Mom around, like a little shadow, but she’s curious about what’s going on!
If you’re looking for a sweetheart whose goal is to be a loving and loyal companion, Lucy is just the gal for you!
