Lucky is great with other dogs, as can be seen in the short video elsewhere on this page of her playing keep-away with a bone from a few of the dogs at GSRSV's rescue ranch. She didn't even get upset when another dog took her bone! Lucky loves to play, but plays too rough at time for her owners' two other dogs (a female Golden Retriever and a male French Bulldog/Beagle mix), which is the primary reason they are seeking a new home for her.
Lucky has not been around cats, so we don't know how she is with them. We will try to evaluate her with cats in the near future, and will consider a home w/ a dog-savvy cat for her.
Lucky is housetrained and well behaved inside, where she spends the majority of her time. She is very active when she's around the other dogs, but will relax and snuggle with her people when she's the only dog present. When her people are away, they keep her in a crate to give their other two dogs a break. Lucky is fine outside and does not dig or bark excessively. She is great on leash and walks right beside her young female owner. She would likely be an excellent jogging partner. Lucky loves playing Frisbee and tug-of-war.
Lucky was reportedly the only survivor of a litter of 14 puppies found in a box near Lake Tahoe in January of this year--which is how she earned her name. Lucky and her siblings were about 8 wks old at the time. The woman who found the puppies eventually put Lucky up for adoption, and her present owner adopted her in August. Now, she and her father are also seeking a new home for Lucky because of her excessively rough play with their other two dogs.
GSRSV has evaluated Lucky and is and is placing her as a "Program Dog." This means that GSRSV is placing Lucky through its adoption program while her owner continues to care for her.
Lucky is located in Roseville. Her adoption fee is $210.
