Lucy is a very lovable 6 year-old Boxer mix who found herself homeless at an overcrowded rural county dog shelter after her owner died. From there, she made the trip to Canine Lifeline so she could take her time finding a great new home. In spite of all the recent changes in her life, Lucy has a great attitude and is a very playful and affectionate dog. According to the shelter, she lived with cats, kids, and other dogs so would seem to get along with just about everyone. Lucy LOVES toys of all kinds and is always up for a great game of fetch. She’s pretty good at bringing the tennis ball back and dropping it at your feet to throw again. Lucy is also reported to be a great Frisbee catcher so she would love to have a big yard where she can show off her fetching and catching skills. She is crate-trained and likely to be housetrained too although we can’t guarantee that she won’t have an accident or two as she gets used to her new routine. True to her breed, Lucy loves to snuggle once playtime is over and is certain to keep her new family warm as the weather gets colder. She does need to work on her leash skills but with daily practice with a harness or Gentle Leader, she should soon be walking like a pro. This girl is going to make her new family very happy so if you’ve got a good throwing arm, Lucy would love to meet you! Lucy weighs about 60 pounds and her adoption fee is $250. She’s spayed, heartworm negative and on monthly preventative, up to date on vaccinations, wormed, on flea and tick preventative, and microchipped. As part of the adoption process, all adopters must commit to a two-week adjustment period to make sure it’s a great match before the adoption is finalized. Please email if you’re interested in Lucy. An approved application is required before we schedule meets with any of our dogs. Please note that we don’t place our dogs in homes with children under 7 years of age. We correspond via email so please check your junkmail or spam folder to make sure our reply hasn’t landed in there.
