Lucky is a precious nine year old dog that nobody seems to want. But he has some very endearing traits and we LOVE him. You will see one of his most endearing traits when you witness him on a car ride. LUCKY LOVES TO GO FOR CAR RIDES and anytime we walk him through the parking lot at the shelter he asks to get in all of the vehicles parked there!
Because he was chained up for the first seven years of his life and hasn’t had much experience, he is afraid of other dogs, very defensive around them, and must not be around them. But he is not a bad dog! Lucky has lived at our shelter for two years now and he hasn’t had a single, qualified person interested in adopting him. Being a “perpetual motion machine” when he is “confined” in an active environment, he damages his legs as he circles and then he limps for days. But when he is hanging out with people or riding in vehicles, he relaxes enough to truly enjoy life.
Today I took my husband Ed and Lucky on a joy ride. Ed sat in the backseat with Lucky and when Lucky wasn’t looking out the window he was curled up tight on Ed’s lap, doing his best to tuck himself completely into Ed. As Ed’s hands carressed Lucky’s satiny, sleek coat, Lucky fell asleep on Ed’s lap. Ed is convinced that Lucky is the best dog ever to have shared the backseat with him. LUCKY IS EXCELLENT IN THE CAR!!!
The saddest thing about the ride is that it came to an end. When Ed woke Lucky up because it was time to get out of the car, Lucky saw that we were back at the shelter and he hesitated before he got out. How sad. What Lucky really wants and NEEDS is to go for a ride that will take him to a NEW destination—his FOREVER HOME.
If you have a fenced yard and no other animals can ever get to him, PLEASE consider adopting Lucky. He will love hanging out AT home most of the time (no public places or dog parks for him) and going for rides with you any time you’d like a little buddy to tag along.
If you aren’t in a position to adopt Lucky but you ARE in a position to take him on rides with you, HE WOULD LOVE THAT too. He is VERY GOOD in the car and the perpetual motion of the car calms him completely down. So loves hanging out with people in a calm environment.
