Meet Lucky! Lucky is a super special boy and he was given a very appropriate name. Lucky was just about to be put to sleep at a high kill shelter in GA and the Last Resort saved his life in the nick of time. It’s a good thing because he has such a gentle spirit and is so sweet. The vet said he believes Lucky is about 4 years old, but he could reasonably be anywhere between 4-6. He is a 60 lb Shepherd mix. We are hoping there will be a special soul out there that will want to bring Lucky into their home. We think Lucky was probably an outdoor only dog in his previous life and at times we can tell he has been abused in the past. It is a real shame his previous owners didn’t love him enough to give him his monthly Heartworm prevention so sadly, Lucky is Heartworm positive. That’s really not a big deal though as we will treat him until he becomes negative, at the cost of the rescue. Unfortunately, Lucky has also developed seizures and is currently being treated with Penobarbital. We have been able to get his medication adjusted to just where it needs to be and hopefully he will continue to be seizure free. Lucky loves everyone and everything – he is great with other dogs and just loves being around them. He is super with people also and has really come out of his shell, although he is still a very easy going dog. He really just wants someone to be his companion and he is really very calm and pleasant to be around. Lucky is very food motivated and knows to sit and beg for food. If you watch his video you will see that he sits up like a statue to beg for treats. It's really cute! Lucky is a gentle soul without a mean bone in his body. He does pretty well in his crate – he whines at first but then quiets down nicely. Hopefully whoever adopts him will be around a good deal and won’t have to crate him. Lucky stays out of his crate overnight and just lays right next to the bed on the floor. Lucky is potty trained. We would like for Lucky to be adopted by someone with a fenced in yard as he does occasionally enjoy a good roll in the grass on a nice sunny day. He loves a tennis ball and carrying around his stuffed bear. He does very well on a leash also, although Lucy will have no interest in being a majorly active dog. He just wants to cuddle on the couch with you! Lucky is neutered and current on vaccines. Lucky is currently in foster care in GA and will be transported to MD or NJ for an approved adopter. Please give him a chance. He just wants someone to love him and make him a part of their family forever.
