We adopt out to homes around the US and Canada, but require that you are present for the meet and greet in Newcastle, WA.

Makes you want to break just down & just cry thinking about Lucy, how she ended up in a slaughterhouse for human consumption & yes you did read that correctly in China. What we do know is she was pulled out of there by our outstanding Chinese rescuer just in time. It’s absolutely soul destroying to think about the horrific situation he ended up in. Working with one of our truly devoted, dedicated & absolutely outstanding Chinese rescuers she rescued Lucy & many others for us. Without this beloved rescuer going in & getting Lucy out, her fate was a torturous death. She transferred Lucy to her own rescue & covid had hit & the waiting began. Along with Lucy & many other sweet souls he got well & they waited to come to the US. This became a very extremely expensive situation with covid. We were finally able to bring everyone back through cargo which is an astronomical expense per dog, but we believe every sweet soul such as Lucy & her friends deserves to be loved & cherished & given the chance to have a wonderful life. Now Lucy is looking for a special family to cherish her & be patient with her & remember what this beautiful soul has been through & a family that meets all her needs.
Lucy was rescued by our truly amazing Chinese rescue friends & just as always we are beyond grateful to the Chinese rescue who we are so extremely thankful for what they do day in & day out for these babies, we cannot thank them enough.
Lucy was bought back to the USA where she is now a US citizen & is so happy to be here & can’t wait to find her new loving devoted forever home.
This tiny little lady is such a sweetheart of a little miss. She is just so happy & grateful all the time. Clearly in China they were vicious to our sweetheart Lucy. It is so unfathomable to think that anyone could be so cruel to our beautiful Lucy, but they were. She is such a lovely, soft & gentle little lady. She maybe a little shy at first with some people. Our vets said she was such a good girl while she was with them & so easy & friendly. She almost lost his his precious life in China & was so very close & deserves the very best loving forever home. From her pictures you can see she loves life & wants to be held & loved & give love.
She has enjoyed eating since he has been here in the US, but let’s face it, being fed the way we are feeding her is all new to her & just being fed all the time is new to her. We have to be careful with Lucy to not over feed her as her belly can back with fecis if she is over fed. We first thought Lucy was pregnant after several weeks of having her & got x-rays done on her to make sure she wasn’t & her belly was full of fecis from over eating & our vets thought perhaps she had a hiatal hernia & needed to see a specialist who we took her to see & no, she just needs to not over eat. The specialist did find that Lucy has a small involuntary head movement probably from being hit in China to breed. She also said that she had a stomach severely distended with food, she suspected that she had the appearance of a hernia induced by food bloat. Our vet also discovered that poor Lucy had been debarked, the heinous act of taking away her beautiful voice in China.
Lucy has done amazing walking on a harness & leash & done so well with us so far but would still need continued work. She gets very excited when on her walks. Lucy is a rescue & will need patience, time & understanding. Lucy adores being pampered & doesn’t want you to stop when brushing her, touching her, she loves it all & being picked up & cuddled. She also does amazing & being groomed. She also does extremely well being touched in general. We have had her with many breeds of dogs & she has done well with different size dogs & adores dogs so we are only looking for a home for her with another dog in the home she can play with.
Lucy also did so well with our vets when she went for her dental & spay. She likes to be wherever you are.
Having toys & a warm bed is all new to Lucy & we have been excited to change her world with the introduction of toys & lots of love & affection & a loving environment.
Lucy has learnt to ride in the car & does well in the car & has so much excitement for a good car ride & gets excited each time we put him in the car to go with us. She is such an amazing, fun happy little miss. With Lucy we are only looking for a crate free home for this lovely little lady only, as she has spent who knows how long of her previous life in a crate. We are also looking for a forever home for Lucy where someone is home during the day or she can go with her people wherever possibly he can go with them.
Lucy is looking for a forever home who will cherish her & love her as she should be loved & be very patient with her & understanding.
Lucy has been around many breeds of dogs all shapes & sizes & she is currently with other dogs & enjoys their company so we are looking for a home where she can be with another dog or other dogs in the home. We currently have her with other dogs. A fully fenced backyard is mandatory for Lucy’s new forever home.
Lucy is now roughly 12.6 lbs he is 7 years old & perhaps a miniture schnauzer, what she is mixed with we are not sure? We took Lucy to a specialist to make sure she did not have a hiatal hernia which she did not. Unfortunately she was debarked in China. She is spayed by laser by our wonderful vets, she had blood work done along with x-rays. She had a dental scale, polish, along with dental x-rays, gum surgery, had a total of 14 teeth removed, had 2 incisors removed, 4 molars minor removed, 4 modular intermediate removed & 3 premolar minor removed, she is heart worm negative, she is microchipped, up to date on her shots, had her shots including DHLPP, Bordatella, CIV, rabies & dewormed.
We have spent far more on Lucy with bringing her to the US with her travel airfare costs, alone bringing her through cargo, without anything else then on top of that paying for her medical care & boarding fees, blood work, x-rays, including a dental/scale & polish. Spay by laser, shots, microchip, etc, than her adoption fee comes close to covering.
Lucy has not been around cats since being in the rescue, but it’s always up to the new family to be responsible with their animals. We have not had her around small children so we do not recommend small children nor cats. But it’s always up to the family to be responsible with their children & cats.
We were not there when Lucy was conceived so we do not know who her parents were, nor her true birth date & it’s always up to the new potential family to look at the pictures & decide what they think her breed is.
As with all of our rescues & Lucy’s friends she will need work on potty training & training, so this should be something the new family would be willing to work on & commit to. Please do not submit an application if you are not willing to commit to one of our rescues care for their whole life & that includes if they need training. Please do not email us asking is Lucy potty trained or available, nor do we ship dogs anywhere as we will not respond.
We would never say anyone of our rescues are potty trained. Our rescues need homes where the people are understanding of their past & what they have been through & what they will need in their daily lives & not willing to give up on them & if they do need training in their new home will in fact take them to training & not just say they will when applying.
Please only submit an application if you are truly interested in adopting Lucy & going through our process and have read her listing fully to the end & are wanting to adopt. If you are not responsive to our calls, emails or your references do not respond we will move on & remove your application from our system. You must be willing to go through our screening process which includes your references being checked, a phone interview & a virtual home visit using Webex due to covid & followed by a meet and greet & if it’s a good fit, up to our discretion. We will only be accepting applications for Lucy who understands her needs & that meet all the requirements for this lovely sweet happy little lady.
Once we find the right home for each little soul we work fast, within days so the dogs can go to their forever homes in quite a timely manner. We do not hold onto dogs for people as our goal is to save lives & please do not submit an application if you are not ready to adopt. We also cannot respond to every application unfortunately.
Lucy has an adoption fee of $995 & is ready for his truly loving forever home & compassion & understanding of what she has been through.
