“My name is Lucy and I’m hoping you can help me find a new home.  Not too long ago I had a loving home with my lady. Sadly she passed away and my life changed forever. Her family was kind enough to bring me to their home but they cannot keep me. While I’m grateful to have a place to stay, it is not the same here. I spend a lot of time in my crate. It’s not because I’m not a good girl, it’s just how it is now. But I really want to find a home where I don’t have to be in my crate so much. So let me tell you about myself:

“I am a 12 year old schnauzer who weighs 16 pounds. I live with 2 other dogs now and I’m very good with them. I’ve not ever lived with cats so I can’t say how I’d do in a home with one. Kids are O.K. too as long as they are nice to me.

“Do you like to go for walks? I love to go for walks! I’m well-behaved on leash. I can do stairs and yes, I’m crate trained too. I will stay in my crate when you’re away from home (if you need me to) and I’m fine with that.

“I have diabetes. This means I need a shot of insulin twice a day. I’m a pro at this! I just lay down nicely so I can get my shot. After my shot I get a treat which is great! It’s no big deal really, you just have to be sure you are ready to commit to this. Because of my diabetes, I will need to be vetted regularly to be sure I’m kept regulated. It’s a lot like people who have diabetes.

“My family will tell you that I’m a very sweet and quiet girl.

“I’m living in Bothell, WA. now. If you cannot give me a forever home, maybe you know someone who may want to? You can tell your friends about me as I hope to find a new home soon.”

Lucy is not an ODH dog; we urge prospective adopters to do their own evaluation.
