Name: Atticus    Breed: Blue Lacy Mix  

Approximate Age: 3 years old    SEX: male

Approximate Weight: 55 lbs.

Has Lived With: other dogs

Currently Living at: SHELTER. Atticus needs a foster home, or even better yet, a forever home!

Atticus is a beautiful 3 year old Blue Lacy mix. He weighs about 55 lbs and, because of his age, he's down growing. Atticus was in pretty rough shape when our partners in South Carolina found him but he's come a long way and can't wait to come to DC and find his forvever family! 

Atticus is a playful and energetic boy so he will need plenty of exercise and playtime each day to be a happy and healthy pup. He would love to go on long walks and regular trips to the dog park. After he's tuckered out, Atticus loves curling up for a nice nap and belly rub. He can't wait to go to obedience training with his new family so that he can bond with his people and become his very best self!

Atticus is good with other dogs so he'd be a great addition to an existing pack or happy to soak up all the attention as an only dog. The nice folks at Lucky Dog don't know how Atticus is with cats or young children but if you're interested, let us know and we can try to find out! 

Like most shelter dogs, Atticus may need a refresher on housetraining. He is likely crate trained.

Atticus has tested positive and been treated for for Heartworm disease. Heartworm is not contagious to people or other pets, but results from mosquito bites.  Heartworm, if left untreated, is life threatening, but after treatment, dogs that were heartworm positive should suffer no significant long-term effects so long as they are kept on a monthly heartworm preventative.

The adoption fee for this dog is $450, which includes the cost of routine vetting, including vaccinations, spay/neuter, and heartworm treatment. If you are interested in adopting, please download our Adoption Questionnaire and email it to Meg H at

About Lucky Dog Animal Rescue

About Our Rescue Group...

Lucky Dog Animal Rescue is a group of highly motivated and highly dedicated volunteers. We spend countless hours making sure that wonderful dogs find loving forever homes.

Our Adoption Process...

The adoption process begins when you submit an adoption application either online or at an adoption event. The individual responsible for the dog you are interested in adopting - a position we call the “adoption coordinator” - will then set up a time to discuss your application over the telephone. The adoption coordinator will check your vet reference to make sure all current and past pets were kept up-to-date with their shots and medical care. The adoption coordinator will also set up a home visit with one of our trained volunteers. That individual will come to your home to ensure that it is a safe environment, to confirm that everyone in the home is on board with adopting a dog, and to discuss any other questions you may have about dog adoption!
