From the Foster:
Little Lucy was never shown human love and attention as a breeder dog and reflects it today. She doesn’t like being picked up or held but will tolerate it. She’s still getting used to positive human touch and has come a long way.
She craves your attention, but is fearful at the same time. She will follow you around the house but will not get close enough to be touched. She’s good with my dogs, easily acclimating to the pack. Lucy had dental issues when she arrived and needed all of her teeth pulled. She’s a good eater, but requires soft food only.
She needs a patient owner who can help her shed her puppy mill past and become the beautiful, confident dog she deserves to be.
