Lucy in Logansport, IN

Just Adopted!

Lucy is a beautiful Ruby girl who is about 6. She enjoys being with her person, and she follows her foster mom around the house. She also loves sitting on a lap and getting cuddles. In fact, she will scratch at your arm or leg if she wants more attention. Lucy is affectionate, but she needs help gaining some confidence. She gets scared easily, and she likes to have a safe place to retreat to. This has gotten better while in the foster home, but Lucy’s family will have to be patient, kind, and willing to help her develop more confidence.

Lucy knows her name, and she is completely housebroken. She hasn’t had a single accident at her foster home, and she is good about letting you know when she needs to go out (she will bark or sit by the door). She has been learning some basic commands, such as “sit.” She is crate trained, and she is happy to sleep in the crate at night. However, she would really love to get to sleep on the bed with her person.

Lucy was very matted when she came into rescue, and she is not fond of being groomed. She tolerates short sessions of being brushed, but her family will have to continue working to get her comfortable with grooming.

Lucy gets along well with her foster family’s 4 other Cavaliers. She is happy to run around the yard with them, but she does get startled if one of the other dogs barks.

Lucy is up-to- date with her vaccines, and she has been spayed. Her teeth have also been cleaned. Lucy only has a couple of teeth remaining, but she has no problem with eating food or treats. She is also microchipped.

Lucy would be happiest in a family with someone home much of the time to give her lots of love and attention and to help her gain confidence. Additionally, the ideal home would have one other friendly and gentle dog to keep her company and help her learn the ropes. She will also need a safe yard with a secure fence because she does enjoy exploring the yard. With patient love and care from her forever family, she will be a great companion.
