Lucy is a beautiful black lab mix with a shiny coat. She could be as old as 13 years but does not act that age; her veterinarian now guesses 8 to 10. She weighs 60 pounds, is long legged and statuesque. She is completely housebroken. She loves her people and men in particular. She is loving, loyal, and devoted. Being out in the yard or going for a car ride are her ideas of great fun. She actually really enjoys the company of children but this rescue does not adopt to homes with young ones.

Lucy does not like females or large dogs getting in her space. She is fine watching them from a distance and wags her tail but once they get in her face she growls. She is currently living with many large dogs and just isn’t happy about it. It’s fine when outside in a large open space but once in the house it can be a problem. Therefore, Lucy should go to a home with no other dog though perhaps a smaller male dog might work.

Lucy does pretty well while her foster mom is at work. She gets lonely when left alone for a long work day and commute, though. She loves her person and wants to share her life with he/she/them so wants to sleep in the bedroom with them. She is content to sleep in a bed on the floor. She doesn’t get on the furniture and her foster mom has not seen any destructive behavior.

Lucy is posted for Rebecca’s Rainbow and is fostered in Tacoma, WA.

ODH has not met this dog; we urge prospective adopters to do their own evaluation.
