LUCY: dob: November 21, 2013....weighs a healthy 40lbs

RESCUED from an EX-hunter(yet, he'd 'just returned from a hunting trip in N. Dakota', the day I met Lucy and took her into our rescue...JERK!) in Rutherford County, NC. 

Miss Lucy was bought from a breeder and kept chained to an open-ended box for 3 years prior to coming to H4S CARes. Owner 'bought her for his 5yo grand-daughter, who lost interest in her until she had a litter of puppies, which the child decided she no longer wanted Lucy, but wanted to keep one of her, they called H4S for help with the rest of the litter. We went back to rescue Lucy, when they agreed to let us take her the next day(thankfully!).    

Lucy tested HW+ and has undergone treatment and is now ready for her fur-ever person/people to open their hearts & home to her & is patiently waiting for her new life to BEGIN!

Lucy is so willing to please her person and only wants a kind hand and love in return for her own UNconditional love and devotion.

Friendly, but shy of strangers/especially men's hands...obviously has been 'strong-armed', but very respectful and nary an aggressive bone in her body. Loves kids!
Looking for a LOVING, RESPECTFUL family in a rural/lake or pond  environment OR a LARGE, preferring a 6' stockade fenced yard to run and play in....the more room, the happier/more contented she will be! LOVES TO HUNT SQUIRRELS!!!!!! Lived under tall oak trees, so squirrels were her main focal-point while chained up to her PAST 'home'. NOT GOOD WITH CATS!(in her mind, they are the same as squirrels).

MUST be an INSIDE companion animal, and have her own soft, warm bed beside her human to sleep/rest on. 


Adoption fee: $125(includes spay, micro-chip, all medical records from day#1 with Howlin4Spirit and vet's records, Martingale collar & leash, current health certificate & beef knee cap bone.

This rescued pup is in and will remain in foster care in Rutherfordton, NC until her adoptive family/person is approved.

Our Adoption Process...

All dogs are fully-vetted, speutered, dewormed with Drontal, checked for heartworms, vaccinated per their age requirements(puppies need 4 booster vax, given every 3 wks), microchipped, all puppies are quarantined(2-3 week period), and placed in a foster home situation, while awaiting their forever homes. Upon contact, we send out an adoption application for potential adopters. This allows us to evaluate which dog(s)would best suit their family, environment, and lifestyle. We, then, review their situation and desires, check their references, and contact them as soon as this has been accomplished. Home checks are required.
Fees are set on an individual basis, and range between $100-$150.
