~~We have been fostering Lucy, since September 27th. She is an enjoyable girl who likes her human sidekicks, interacting with us and watching everything we do inside the house as well as out. She is crate trained and house broken. She likes to be hugged with lots of human skin-dog fur contact for fairly long periods of time (1-2 minutes). Lucy has not chewed on any of our furniture or shoes. She is up to date on her meds. She is heartworm negative. Right now she is thin and starting to eat more and will be putting some weight on. On my home scale Lucy weighs 43.5 pounds. She had previously been in a South Carolina animal shelter since 3/4/2016.
Lucy enjoys both inside and outside of our house. She is happy in our fenced backyard for up to 2 hours at a time with a person with her in the backyard almost all of the time. She watches the dogs of our neighbors with a lot of interest. She enjoys running along the fence with them. She is not much of a barker during these displays. She is a fast runner. She is not much of a barker at all.
Lucy is a very affectionate and attentive animal who loves to play with people at a slow to medium pace. She has a favorite squeaky toy that fascinates her. She does not get up on kitchen counters or into garbage cans. In our home, she is not allowed on beds or to get into chairs or couches. She obeys and knows these rules and learned our rules in a day or two. She likes her open door crate and goes into and out of it frequently as a center of her activities. She sleeps overnight in her door-shut crate, and then goes outside at about 7am before I leave to go to work. She sleeps and rests in her crate and also on an elevated small exercise trampoline with a blanket on top. She is fond of this trampoline as one of her favorite zones and learned this trampoline-area in just one try. She has learned our house rules faster than any dog we have ever fostered (about 20 total dogs and 4 boxers)
