This sweet girl was taken to an animal shelter at 9 years of age. She was very depressed and confused in the shelter. She was so scared in the normal dog kennels (very noisy!) that she ended up living in the shelter bathroom. She had been passed around from home to home before she ended up in the shelter. Lucy loves other dogs and cats and she loves to be around "her people." She is great with all people and has never met a stranger - even kids! She is a follower and very submissive. She can be crated (and does quite well) but loves free run in a house. She is potty trained and will stand by the door to let you know when she needs to go outside. She is a sweet old gal who will sleep in bed with you all night long. She loves her walks too! Her senior exam showed good bloodwork but her alkaline phosphatase was a little high (not alarmingly high) which is common with senior dogs. She is a pretty anxious dog so we put her on anti-anxiety medication to help her through this stressful transition. The medication helps her relax and enjoy life! We are hoping to wean her off once she finds her forever home and feels less insecure. She is seeking a senior dog lover (we know you are out there!) and one who understands dogs with anxiety. Seniors need extra TLC and reassurance. She currently lives with two senior chihuahuas and three cats. She very much follows the pack. She enjoys sharing her dog pallet with both dogs and cats. Since her vet visit, and getting antibiotics and anti-fungals for her skin (which was a mess), she has made huge strides. She will even race around the yard! This heartbreaking story is all too common - senior dog dumped at a shelter leaving the dog traumatized. We are looking for a kind-hearted person to love her through her golden years. Adopting a senior from us means you are opening up a spot in foster care to save another senior turned into the shelter. Sadly, there are lots of them:(
If you are interested in me, please send an email to to get more information on how to fill out an application and have a great meet and greet to see if we are a match made in heaven.
