My story

Ready to be loved unconditionally, go on long walks, pet me, love me, and get up again tomorrow and do it all over again? Then I, Lucy, am your gal.

I am 6 years old, 65 lbs., and filled with fantastic qualities! One of the most important is that I love to get (and give) love and affection. I just want to be around my human(s) and go on walks or long hikes. I get soooo very happy when I see my foster mom put on her shoes and get the leash out – I do zoomies and get very chatty about how excited I am to be going out to explore! I am a good listener too. I have all the best qualities of my breeds; loyal, affectionate, obedient. I know my human keeps me safe; I still like to let her know when someone is approaching just in case she isn’t paying attention. She always is and she tells me to be quiet and I instantly am. Did I mention that I just love to be around my human family? Oh, I love children, too. Have some? Or maybe some grandkids?

At night I sleep in my crate and I know when my bedtime is, so my foster mom does not even tell me to go to bed. Oh! And I love chest and belly rubs, lots and lots and LOTS of belly rubs. You will often catch me on my back, full belly showing and tail wagging wildly! Would you like to meet me? I would love to meet you!

Lest you think I am perfect, I do have one minor flaw. Kitties. I just don't want them in my life, thank you. I get along with dogs OK, but in my world, the best possible thing would be for me to be your one and only bestie. Deal? If so, please apply to meet me today!September 27, 2023, 6:08 pm

Their adoption process


Submit Application

To see all of our pups up for adoption, go here:



Once you see a dog you are interested in, fill out an application here:


Meet the Pet

Someone will call or email you for a phone interview within 24-48 hours, once you have submitted the application.


Home Check

We will schedule the home check once you have been approved. This may be done virtually.

Additional adoption info

All of our animals come fully vaccinated and spayed or neutered (if old enough), and microchipped. Puppies and kittens will be spayed/neutered and have all shots when they are old enough. There is an Adoption application, a quick phone interview to make sure it is a good fit, a meet and greet with the dog, then a home check, and an adoption contract. We ask for a $400 donation for adult dogs, and $500 for puppies at the time of adoption so that we can save other dogs from the shelter. The first step is to fill out an app here:

More about this rescue

Dogs are man's best friend, but it is not always the other way around. The Little Red Dog was founded in memory of a little red American Pit Bull Terrier who did not make it. If you are familiar with the Michael Vick dog fighting case chronicled in The Lost Dogs: Michael Vick's Dogs and Their Tale of Rescue and Redemption. The Little Red Dog was brutally beaten to death by Vick and his cronies because she didn't want to fight.

The Little Red Dog rescues dogs; red, blue, tan, white, brown, black and all colors in between. We do not discriminate against ANY breed; that's because we are a real rescue, and we will help as many animals as we can. Our primary goal is to get them into loving homes. Our hope that some day all of them make it, but most of all, we will never forget the Little Red Dog and many others who did not.
