Lucy is a beautiful, sweet and gentle lady who is waiting to find a loving forever home. She is smart, and already knows some commands. She is gentle, especially when taking treats. And she is playful, and LOVES to go for a ride in the car and play fetch. Lucy is good with kids, but due to her large size would do better with kids over the age of 5. Lucy is very active, and will need a yard to run around. She loves to chase squirrels and go on long hikes with her foster mom. Lucy gets along with SOME dogs, but not with ALL dogs. Shed thrive as an only dog, or living with an older quieter dog. If another dog is in the home, a meet and greet is required. Please consider opening your heart and home to this sweet girl. She adores people and cant wait to meet her forever family! Lucy is HW positive but has been treated and is ready to go!

Your new pet will require a refresher in house-training. K-9 Lifesavers strongly recommends all new adopters enroll their new pet into obedience training. This provides for an easier transition into a new home, ensures the dog remains well socialized, and helps form a bond between the dog and the new family. 

Adoption fees cover basic vetting, spay/neuter surgery, rabies, distemper/parvo vaccinations, treatment for worms, heartworm testing, monthly heartworm prevention and monthly flea/tick prevention (while the animal is in our care), and transport costs from high-kill shelter. Please note that on average, K-9 Lifesavers spend significantly more on each dog than their adoption fee. Adoption fee for HW positive dogs also covers heartworm treatment at our partner vets.
