In shelter Dog

Rockville, MD, 20853
Pet name:
Introducing Lucas a 1yr-old Terrier/Hound mix (Breed is just a guess) who weighs about 45 pounds. Lucas is a shy insecure pup who takes some time to warm up to new people. Once he trusts you though he is an extremely cuddly sweet devoted boy. He is very unsure of strangers and new situations and will need an adopter who will give him clear boundaries, lots of encouragement and time to adjust to a new environment. He will need an experienced dog owner who can continue to help Lucas build his confidence and expose him to new people in a calm, controlled environment. Due to his fearful nature, Lucas absolutely needs a quiet home without many visitors coming and going OR a very diligent handler who is prepared to keep Lucas on a leash when new people come to the home. Lucas is wonderful with dogs and will definitely need a confident dog to learn from. He is just as good with little dogs as big dogs so the size doesnt matter, but a friendly confident happy dog is a must in his new home. Lucas is learning his basic commands and is house trained. He is good on leash and crate trained although he doesnt need to be crated. Lucas is neutered, is up to date on vaccines and is microchipped.

***You must be at least 25 years of age to adopt from Lovepaws***

***The adoption fee for this dog is $375, which helps with the cost of routine vet care.

***Note that puppy adoption fees most often help generate revenue that goes towards older, special needs animals that need our help. Surgeries, heartworm treatment, boarding costs and/or all things that often result in adoptable dogs and cats being left behind to be euthanized. So adopting a puppy saves not just one life, but many!

***Please note that our first step in approving adoption applicants is to complete a vet check. Vetting of current and past pets is very important to us, thus we will be speaking with the vet(s) listed on your application to ensure that your current and previous pet(s) are kept up to date on vaccines (including rabies ), spayed or neutered, maintained on appropriate monthly preventatives and examined annually by your vet.***
