From the Foster:
Do you have a gentle nature and a weakness for adorably large ears? Lucie is a sweet, sensitive and snuggly little low rider.
Lucie was rescued from a hoarding situation where she never really had the chance to learn how great being a beloved pet can be. She was pregnant when she left the shelter in Oklahoma and went into labor on her transport to Secondhand Hounds. She had 4 beautiful pups that have all been adopted. This sweet girl has been through so much!
But that’s in her past, and now that she has had a taste of the good life, she’s ready to live the rest of her days being your best little snuggle buddy.
She would do best with someone who could offer her a quieter lifestyle and a predictable routine- a cozy couch and a sunny window. (She would also do really well with another dog companion who is confident and easy going, however it is not necessary. In rescue she has lived with 3 other 50# dogs)
She is 100% housebroken - even with the snow! (Although you might have to shovel a path for her when the snow gets deeper than her!) We worked really hard to get here and she’s done amazing- especially having come from a warm climate. She would prefer a fenced yard- even a very small one or enclosed patio. She walks well on a leash with a harness. She likes her daily walks, but being out in the world can sometimes still be a little scary with the unpredictable sounds and sights and unfamiliar people and dogs. She might freeze up, but some gentle reassuring words get her back in motion.
She is crate trained- though she is reliable with free roam. She doesn’t chew things she shouldn’t as long as she has her own things to chew.
She enjoys her furry squeaky toys and rawhide chews. .
She is not a “barker”, but will alert to someone at the door, and sometimes to strange sounds.
Her coat is smooth, shiny and low maintenance/low shedding. She looks like a corgi without the shedding!
