LUCY's Story...
LUCY--LUCY'S STORY--"A PROMISE BROKEN" LUCY IS A GORGEOUS, 3 YEAR OLD, 60 POUND, SMOOTH COATED COLLIE/AUSTRALIAN SHEPHERD MIX PUP!!!, WHAT A GREAT COMBINATION!!! . LUCY'S WORLD WAS SHATTERED WHEN HER OWNER WHO HAD RAISED LUCY SINCE SHE WAS AN ADORABLE, WIGGLY PUPPY, DIED AND LUCY AS HER OWNER WISH WAS INTRUSTED TO RELATIVES FOR "SAFE KEEPING", BUT AS WE SOON LEARNED LUCY WAS ANYTHING BUT SAFE. THE FAMILY PROMISED TO CARE FOR LUCY AND LOVE HER, THEY BROKE THEIR PROMISE, THEY LIED, THEY THREW HER AWAY!!!! THEY WALKED THIS GENTLE, LOVING, COMPANION PUP INTO A HIGH KILL SHELTER, TIED HER TO A POLE, SIGNED HER OVER TO THE KILL SHELTER, THEIR COMMENT WAS "WE DON'T WANT HER", AND WALKED AWAY!!!! THIS WAS A TRAGEDY FOR LUCY AS HER OWNER AND LUCY WERE INSEPARATEABLE. SHE WAS ADORED AND HER OWNER TOOK GREAT PRIDE IN HER AND THROUGH THE YEARS TRANSFORMED A PLAYFUL, BOUNCY, PUP INTO A LOVING, GENTLE, BEAUTIFULLY BEHAVED GIRL. IT IS UNIMAGINABLE TO US HOW ANYONE COULD BE SO HEARTLESS AND CRUEL AS TO LEAVE A GENTLE SOUL LIKE LUCY IN SUCH A SCARY AND DANGEROUS PLACE. WE RECEIVED A CALL FROM A SHELTER VOLUNTEER WHO TOLD US ABOUT LUCY. SHE SAID LUCY LAID IN THE CORNER OF HER CAGE, HEAD DOWN, EYES CLOSED TREMBLING WITH FEAR. WE COULDN'T GET TO HER FAST ENOUGH. WHEN WE FIRST SAW LUCY WE WALKED OVER TO HER, SPOKE SOFTLY AND GAVE HER A PAT, SHE LIFTED HER BEAUTIFUL HEAD, HER TAIL BEGAN TO WAG EVER SO SLIGHTLY, AS IF SHE WAS SAYING "PLEASE HELP ME". FATE GAVE US LUCY THAT DAY, A WONDERFUL GIFT. IT IS OFTEN SAID THAT THE SOUL CAN BE SEEN IN THE EYES AND LUCY'S CHINA BLUE EYES DO TELL A STORY OF A PUP THAT HAD BEEN A TRUE LOVING COMPANION ALL HER LIFE. SHE IS A PUP THAT HAD DEVOTED HER LIFE TO HER OWNER. LUCY DID NOT DESERVE SUCH BETRAYL, IT WAS NOT HER FAULT, SHE DID NOTHING WRONG JUST A FAMILY WHO WERE COLD AND UNCARING, A FAMILY WHO BROKE THEIR PROMISE. DESPITE THE PLIGHT LUCY FOUND HERSELF IN SHE HOLDS NO GRUDGE AND IS HAPPY AND GRATEFUL FOR EVERYDAY. WHEN WE WALKED LUCY OUT OF THAT SHELTER THOSE GOREOUSE EYES SEEMED TO SPARKLE AND HER WHOLE SWEET FACE SEEMED TO SMILE. SHE KNEW SHE WAS SAFE!!! THE FIRST TIME YOU SEE LUCY SHE WILL ABSOLUTELY MELT YOUR HEART. SHE HAS THE SWEETEST FACE WITH THE MOST BEAUTIFUL PALE, CHINA BLUE EYES WE HAVE EVER SEEN. THEY HAVE A KIND, GENTLE LOOK AND IF LUCY COULD SPEAK YOU WOULD SWEAR SHE IS SAYING "LOVE ME", IN OUR OPINION IMPOSSIBLE NOT TO. HER COAT IS ALSO BEYOND BEAUTIFUL, FLAWLESS AND SO SOFT IT FEELS LIKE VELVET. IT IS A GORGEOUS "TIGER BRINDLING" COLOR, A MYRIAD OF COLOR, JET BLACK, RICH WARM COPPER AND PALE VANILLA. LUCY IS ALSO A BEAUTIFULLY BUILT PUP WITH PERFECT BODY CONFIRMATION BUT HER TRUE BEAUTY IS HER HEART AND SPIRIT. LUCY IS THE UNTIMATE COMPANION. SHE IS GENTLE, LOVING AND AS AFFECTIONATE A PUP AS YOU COULD EVER HOPE TO FIND. SHE IS A "CUDDLER" AND WHAT WE CALL A SOFT DOG. SHE WILL COME AND SIT A CLOSE TO YOU AS SHE CAN GET , REST HER HEAD IN YOUR LAP, LOOK AT YOU WITH THOSE EYES ASKING FOR A PAT OR A RUB WHICH SHE ADORES. SHE WILL SNUGGLE IN, CLOSE HER EYES WITH SWEET SATISFACTION KNOWING SHE IS WITH THE PERSON SHE LOVES MOST IN THE WORLD--YOU!!! BEING WITH A FAMILY WHO LOVES HER IS THE ONLY LIFE SHE HAS EVER KNOWN, THE LIFE SHE DESERVES TO KNOW AGAIN. THIS GENTLE GIRL WOULD FIT INTO ANY FAMILIES LIFE STYLE. SHE NEVER MEETS A STRANGER CHILDREN TO SENIORS SHE LOVES THEM ALL. LUCY WOULD DELIGHT IN BEING HER OWNER'S ONLY COMPANION AS SHE CAN BE A LITTLE FUSSY WITH SOME DOGS, JUST LETTING THEM KNOW THAT SHE IS THE STAR, A TRAIT NOT UNCOMMON WITH MANY BEAUTIFUL FEMALES, SHE IS FINE WITH CATS. WHATEVER YOUR DAY CALLED FOR IS FINE WITH LUCY, IF SHE IS WITH YOU SHE'S HAPPY. SHE LOVES EARLY MOENING OR LATE AFTERNOON WALKS, SHE WALKS BEAUTIFULLY ON LEAD, GENTLE AND EASY. BEING THE COMBINATION OF TWO HIGHLY INTELLIGENT BREEDS THERE'S NO WAY LUCY ISN'T SMART, BOY IS SHE!! SHE IS A VERY ALERT PUP, AWEAR OF HER SURROUNDINGS, A BREEZE TO TRAIN AND SHE DELIGHTS IN PLEASING THOSE SHE LOVES. AT DAY'S END WHEN LUCY COMES INTO HER HOME SHE CONTINUES TO SHINE, HOUSE TRAINED, WITH BEAUTIFUL MANNERS, RESPECTFUL OF HER SURROUNDINGS A PLEASURE TO BE AROUND. YOU WILL FIND LUCY CURLED UP AT YOUR FEET, NAPPING, CONTENT AND HAPPY JUST BREING WITH YOU. IN FACT HER FOSTER MOM, ONE OF OUR DIRECTORS AND WHEN ASKED ABOUT LUCY HER COMMENT TO US WAS "SHE'S PERFECT"!!!. AT BEDTIME YOU WILL FIND LUCY ALL SNUGGLES IN HER BIG FLUFFY BED JUST AS LONG AS IT'S CLOSE TO YOUR BED BUT OUR DIRECTOR ALSO SAID SHE IS THE BEST CUDDLE SOFT SLEEPING BUDDY EVER. LUCY ONLY HAS ONE REQUEST AND HER EYES TOLD US THIS THE FIRST TIME WE SAW HER. SHE WANTS HER FAMILY, TO BE SOMEONE'S CHERISHED COMPANION, TO BE A PART OF SOMEONE'S LIFE AGAIN. SHE WANTS TO BE LOVED AS DEEPLY AS SHE LOVES.

Why Adoption is a Great Option

LUCY, a Pawling Collie/Australian Shepherd dog was adopted! Here's how you can benefit by looking at adoption as an option to buying a Collie/Australian Shepherd for sale in Pawling, or seeking a Collie/Australian Shepherd dog from a breeder in Pawling.

  1. Rescues and shelter volunteers in Pawling already know the personality and tendencies of their pets. This means they can match you with the right pet. That will makes it much easier transition to owning a pet for yourself and your new pet.
  2. On average adoption fees are much less than you'd pay a Pawling breeder, or pet store. Plus most often rescue pets have already been to the veterinarian for a check-up, had a round of vaccinations, and are spayed or neutered. That is a lot of savings!
  3. You will become a hero, and give a needy dog or cat a loving home. In fact, there are even Collie/Australian Shepherd breeders who help with Collie/Australian Shepherd rescue. One puppy or kitten adopted in Pawling paves the way for another one to be saved.
