Lucky is about to make someone very lucky!
Lucky was an abuse case, removed from his home, and was housed at the local shelter. Following the court date, and his permanent removal from the home, he was immediately taken into rescue. Lucky is not the least bit skittish. The former owner kept him in a crate 24 hrs daily, never let him out, and he lay in his own waste. Lucky has had multiple baths trying to get the stains off. With time the stains will go away as will the stains on his heart.
He is a beautiful, sweet soul and luckily does not appear to have any permanent scars from his unfortunate beginning. Lucky LOVES to play and would love an active family or a family with kids who would love to run and play with him. Toys and playing with other dogs are some of his favorite things! He walks fairly on a leash but needs more leash work. Lucky loves to be with his people and loves to please his people. He always has a smile on his face.
Lucky needs to be in home where someone is home most of the time. Since he was an abuse case, and the abuse was having him crammed in a tiny crate lying in his own waste, it’s not fair for him to go to a home where he’s crated 8 hrs/day. Lucky sometimes runs under foot, so would not be appropriate in a home who has a family member who is a fall risk.
We truly think Lucky is so deserving of an amazing life- is that you!
Lucky loves to play!

PLEASE - Think long and hard before adopting a puppy - consider the lifestyle change this puppy will come with - he cannot be crated for more than 3-4 hours at a time until he’s older, puppy proofing your home will be necessary, puppies scratch and nip so if you have small children, can they handle this?? Training will be so important in this puppy’s life, do you have the time??
Please review this checklist for socializing puppies - do you have the time - ask yourself before adopting.
IMPORTANT INFORMATION -

Adoption donations cover pre-adoption vet costs (including vaccinations, spay/neuter when age appropriate, and heartworm testing/treatment when necessary), a microchip, and transportation to New England if necessary.
Donations for our young, healthy puppies and dogs support their fellow canines of advanced age or suffering from injuries and abuse whose donations are reduced but whose veterinary costs are typically much higher. We appreciate your understanding that your newly adopted dog will help others in need.
