UPDATED: Lucy is in foster care and her foster mom encourages anyone interested in meeting her to call the shelter and make arrangements to visit her and see her loving life with all the dog buddies she has made.
Salutations, my name is Lucy and I am a sensitive gal. I have come to WCHS from a far away land called South Korea and I am ready to find my forever home. I have never really had a place to call my own so I think it will be awesome to have a family that loves me and keeps me safe. I have not had much opportunity to be socialized so many things are new to me. My family will need to be patient with me and help me overcome my horrible past. It is required that my new family has another dog (35# or larger) in my new home. It will help me feel more comfortable and confident in new surroundings if I can follow my canine friend's lead. One thing I know for sure is that I cannot share a home with cats. They just make me crazy and I am sure it would be no fun for the cat. I would be good sharing a home with dog savvy children that are 13 years or older. Fast movements make me very nervous; I need the whole family to be able to make me feel more comfortable and build my confidence. I am good with all sorts of handling as long as we take it slow. I actually seek out attention and I enjoy the company of people. Although I am about 58 pounds (and could use a few more) I think I may be destined to be a lap dog. I have good manners with my food bowl, but I do get a little uneasy when people come around and look like they may take it away. I do not get mad, just uncomfortable. I think once I settle in and realize that I will always have plenty to eat and you always give me great food I will learn to relax. Since I have been at the shelter I have discovered these spectacular treats called pig's ears. They are wonderful to munch on and play with and I enjoy sharing these fun moments with people; although I also think it is fun to hide it from you. I know I have a lot to learn but I am very smart and I also love hot dogs which are fabulous motivators. I think I would love to explore this wonderful world with you; so many new sights and smells to soak in. I am looking forward to gaining more self-assurance by engaging in brain games or canine activities like nose-work or focus exercises. Did you know a dog can build confidence by working on agility, introducing novel items in safe and controlled ways, targeting exercises and obedience training? Stop by to meet me in person, give me some time to get to know you and discover my gentle charm and sweetness.
