Happy Birthday Gary Groot!My siblings and I decided to sponsor this life saving transport to honor our father's 81st birthday.  Our father, Gary Groot, is the main reason we are all animal lovers.  We grew up watching and learning how to properly pamper our puppies and he instilled in us the importance of adoption; how it saves lives.  My father just lost his beloved Precious who he loved with all his heart and took her everywhere, even bought a travel trailer so she could join him on mission projects for the church.  Precious was by his side for the last 15 years and will now wait for him at the Rainbow Bridge.  Suzanne, Karen & Tom   Lucy and her 5 siblings were born around January 7, 2020 and may top out in the 60-65 pound range. Please understand we are truly guessing on the breed for this family.  Some of the siblings have a more Retriever look while others we feel have more of a Collie appearance to them.  They are wonderful with the other dogs and absolutely sweet natured, intelligent, teens, so training should go smoothly.  Update from the foster mom:  Lucy is a happy, playful, one year old that loves other dogs and would love a playmate in her forever home. She loves her toys, playing in the snow and ice cubes! We have had her for only five days. She arrived at our home shy and unsure of us and the moves we make but is adjusting nicely. She is learning to walk on a leash and is improving on that also. She is not potty trained, but found the potty pads the little dogs in the household use and to my surprise is using them.She is only a year old so she is still a puppy and quite the chewer. We have A LOT of toys for her. She is nosy and follows us everywhere around the house. She sleeps in bed with us both which is a wonderful bonding time as she is shyer of men than women. She does go into her crate when we have to go out. Lucy is the sweetest little girl and we love having her here. She will need a home that is willing to give her a little time to adjust when she gets to her forever home.  The Adoption Fee for this dog is $400.00 Adoptions fees vary based on adoptability.
