Meet Lucy XII!

Lucy, named because she was found “on the loose, is a sweet 35 lb. black chow. After being brought in as a stray, Lucy immediately started showing immense love and gratitude to her foster parents. She is 1-2 years old and while she generally has a very calm temperament at home, she loves her play time with her fosters and most importantly, her foster fur sibling. Lucy would do great in a home with other dogs who are interested in having play time.

Lucy is crate and house-trained, but will require some training to get more comfortable walking with a leash. She currently gets very overwhelmed by all the stimulation on walks, and has a hard time staying focused. She would thrive in a house with a backyard as she is very adventurous and loves to explore. Her favorite activity is chasing squirrels and birds, and she could entertain herself for quite some time if she had a backyard of her own.

Whether it is giving you a kiss or hug (which she does often), Lucy looks at you with her big brown eyes and truly makes you feel like the most important person in the world. She may take a little bit of time to warm up to a new person because of what she’s been through, but it only takes her a few minutes to get comfortable and be herself. She is so grateful to be taken care of and shown the life she deserves that she will make a fantastic companion in her forever home.
