3-year-old, Spayed female, Pointer/American Terrier Mix (best guess), 45 lb.
Lucy is a sweetheart of a dog who was found running down the middle of a rural road one day in early summer. She was emaciated, covered in fleas, and had had puppies at some point recently. She was likely dumped out. Despite everything, she has a great disposition! She loves all people, listens well, and is very playful. Lucy plays well with the other dogs she has been introduced to in her foster home, and loves to play catch with the 10-year-old grandson of the home. As Lucy is still getting over thinking she's "starving" all the time, if she goes to a home with another dog, she will need to be fed separately, as she tends to have food-aggression with other dogs. She is intelligent, and has figured out how to climb chain-link and wire fencing, so a home with either secure wood fencing or an underground/radio collar fencing system will be needed. One of Lucy's favorite things is to sit on the porch with her humans, and she also loves walks!
She has gained some much needed weight, been fully vetted, and is ready for her forever home. Lucy has been spayed, microchipped, vaccinated, and is on her monthly preventatives. All she needs is a place to call home! She weighs approximately 45 pounds. Her estimated DOB is 09/25/2013. She is in foster care in East Tennessee. Her adoption fee is $450 which includes all vetting and transport. Vet references, personal references, and home visits may be required prior to adoption.
