Lucy’s adopters will need to carry on managing her anxiety. Lucy is currently receiving an SSRI and is working with a trainer/behaviorist. Many more details available.

Meet Little Girl Lucy. She is a combination dog/cat/bird/person. Lucy looks like a dog and talks like a dog, but has the agility of a cat, the high pitch play noises (and worry noises) of a bird, and she sits with her back straight up like a person (also loves being carried like a baby). She is silly and crazy, athletic and smart, and so so sweet once she realizes you are her person. Lucy’s perfect day would be entirely spent with you. She will cook with you in the kitchen, sit and watch tv, play, and snuggle. She has even been known to follow people into the bathroom. Lucy will love just being around you, but a day she would truly enjoy is lots of time outside, running around playing fetch, or sitting in the sun. Lucy prefers not to be left home alone all day or sharing her home with other pets. Mainly, Lucy just wants an owner who can be her mama and for whom she can be the number 1 companion. If you are looking for a dog who will be the warm lump keeping you cozy in bed or on the sofa, a dog that will amaze you with her athleticism and agility, a dog who will very quickly carve a deep notch in your heart, a dog who you will be devoted to as an owner and create a safe warm environment for, then Lucy is the dog for you.
