Despite her chaotic life so far, Lucy is still wearing her gappy, cheesy smile!
Lucy has traveled all the way from Texas to find you! Having previously been adopted from the US, she moved to Canada as a pup and has sadly ended up back here in a shelter when her previous owner was no longer able to take care of her. We are really looking forward to finding Lucy a loving home where she can finally get the stability and consistency she needs and deserves!
Lucy is a big cuddly goofball! Once she gets to know you, she will greet you with all the tail wags and kisses you could dream of! Lucy absolutely loves her walks where she can sniff and explore everything she sees. Sometimes, she gets too excited, and will try to take YOU for a walk instead. Lucy is a very strong girl, and has therefore been trained to walk in a halti collar. Her adopter will need to pursue this and continue to work on her leash-training. She enjoys roaming in our off-leash compound, where she often gets the slowest, goofiest zoomies you’ve ever seen – her little legs just can’t keep up with the rest of her body!
Lucy has shown some barrier reactivity here in shelter. She has been particularly reactive to certain men, and will need to work on slow introductions. Once she gets to know you, Lucy is a sweet, friendly girl who won’t forget a familiar face. She always remembers those who bring her treats!
Lucy is a big foodie, dinnertime is her favourite time of the day. Much to Lucy’s surprise – she could really do with cutting back on the treats and losing a few pounds! She is currently on a diet to help her with her weight-loss and allergies (typical to the Pittie breed!).
If you feel like sweet Lucy would be a good match for you, send us in an application online today so we can arrange a meet with her Foster Mom!
