LUCY

Hi, I'm Lucy, and I'm ready for a home of my own.  I was flown here from the New Orleans area on a Pilots N Paws flight after my owner died and the family surrendered me to the shelter. I was loved at some point in my past though because I've had a bilateral TECA ( ear canal ablation). This means that I cannot hear so well, and I learn by watching you closely. I'm a petite little girl with an estimated birth date of 7/11/2010. 

I've come to GCCSR in July, I've really blossomed.  I was sad and skinny when I first arrived, but now I am happy and healthy!  I've been described as a laid-back dog who is such a love bug, offering tons of kisses to my foster mom.  I match my energy level to yours, but mostly I'm calm and quiet, and I like to be where you are.  I will follow you everywhere you go - kitchen, bathroom, outside, living room, couch, you name it!  The kitchen is my favorite because I always hope to score a snack when in that room!

I have foster doggy siblings, and I get along with them, but we all kind of ignore each other. Sometimes I will scold them if they get in my way while racing to the car to get the best seat for a ride, but it never escalates. There is also a human child that visits often.  I love following her around, too, but my foster mom puts me in my kennel when she has a snack because I will try and snatch it.  I was super thin when I arrived, so that is probably why I am extremely food motivated.  I have yet to met a kid with a few morsels of food in their hands that I won't steal, so protect your stash, people!  

I have a huge backyard to play in, but I prefer to be inside.  I really, really like it when my human goes out in the yard with me.  I don't stay there long.  I basically do my business and want back in!  I guess you could call me a homebody!!!  My foster mom thinks that I used to live in a home without a yard, because even though I almost always use the doggy door to go outside and potty, sometimes I prefer to use a puppy pee pad. I'm working on that though!

I guess I am what you would call a loyal companion animal.  YOU are my job.  I love to be near my human;  that's all I want (except maybe a little extra snack). I'm up to date on my vaccinations, spayed, microchipped, and heartworm negative.  Because I'm hard of hearing and snappy with food, a home without small children would be best.  Can't wait to meet you!
