Lucy is very timid and shy but is very sweet. She needs someone who is patient and will help her become confident, trusting, happy and loved. She'll need socialization, and leash-training.
She more than likely did not have a good start to life, she was found on the streets and has never been in a home before. She came in with another dog and follows him around. She will go into the grooming area of the facility but always runs back to her kennel. It is her safe place.
When staff go into her area she backs away. She doesn’t snap or growl, she is just timid and displays avoidance. She hates being on a leash.
We would consider her semi-feral and will need a strong confident handler and a calm environment. She would likely do well with a confident balanced foster-sibling to show her the ropes. As she still struggles with being on a leash, she will need a home with a yard. A behavior assessment is available.
She's a quiet girl and has a permanent head-tilt. She is a distemper survivor, and now has the hope of a second chance at life. If you are interested in fostering this dog, please fill out an application.
