Lucky is one of the special abandoned ones that is 'lucky' to be alive. Lucky was found on a roadside in starved condition by a police officer. This nice man did not want to take her to animal control where she would most likely be euthanized. He instead took her home where he and his wife and children nursed her back to health and gave her a fitting name. Once healed, the officer then brought Lucky to us hoping that we could find a good home for her. He already had several dogs and could not keep Lucky permanently.
When Lucky first came to us, she was still a little thin. Because she is short, she looked like she had some kind of terrier in her breeding. As she filled out and got stocky, it seemed that Lucky was also probably part Pit. She is definitely a mix. And although she looks part Pit, she is quite short for a purebred. Lucky's coloring also indicates a breed or breeds different from a purebred Pit. Her coat is a, two tone pattern of chocolate and chestnut. She has white on her chest and feet, laced with lots of chestnut freckles.
Lucky is now close to 7 1/2 - 8 years old and has been with us awhile. Pits or Pit mixes can be harder to adopt than other breeds. It is unfortunate for Lucky because she is a loving, entertaining little gal! She has a happy personality and LOVES to run and play! She looks you right in the eye and is very engaging, personable and loving! She actually looks like she is smiling most of the time!:)
Lucky is great with male dogs, particularly ones that love to play like her. Lucky is 'alpha' with other females and wants to be the boss. She is not mean but likes to be in charge.
For someone who does not want a puppy but wants a grown dog with a happy, fun, loving personality, Lucky is absolutely the dog! WE BEG YOU TO COME SEE AND CONSIDER HER!
