Does your dog need a dog? Does your dog want to take a dog for a walk? Does your dog need company now that you actually have to go back to work? We’ve got the dog’s dog for you.
Lucy is a 1.5 year old loving and extremely well behaved dog who absolutely loves other dogs. She is well trained, obedient, great on a leash, quiet, fully housetrained, doesn’t beg or get pushy, and only goes on furniture she is expressly allowed on. She is not good in a crate but she is safe and well-behaved in a house even when left alone.
This girl is happiest at the dog park and loves to wrestle hard with the big dogs but can also play gently with the little ones. Currently in a foster home with no other dogs, she is lonely for company. She needs to have other dogs in the home to be happy and to manage anxiety. She is great in doggie daycare or boarding.
Lucy is fearful-aggressive with visitors in the home. Her family worked with her and truly loved her but stranger danger in a home is not something that can be “cured” - it can be managed but it’s a lot easier to manage in an adult home that doesn’t have a lot of unpredictable guests. Lucy is fine on walks and in the dog park, but does not appreciate newcomers, so is not appropriate for a house with children of any age, or well-meaning but hand-sy strangers. Being with other dogs calms her stranger-danger response considerably.
Lucy loves to go on walks and hikes, is smart and very trainable. She loves to chase wildlife but isn’t quite fast enough to catch any, so cats are also not recommended. She is the sweetest love with her own people and only took a couple of days to bond with the foster, so you and your dog can have a new best friend.
