More About Lucy
Lucy and her housemate Ricky were taken from a neglectful home situation where they were used for breeding over and over and not given any health care. They were received into rescue in horrible conditions. Lucy had infected teeth, severely matted fur and an infected uterus! With lots of medical care and love we were able to help Lucy with all of her medical challenges. She has been in a loving foster home through all of her medical proceedings and recovery.
Her house-mate Ricky was also in horrible condition and they both have been though so much together and count on each other for support. We are looking for a home to keep them together. Please see Ricky's petfinder page for more information about him.
They both have been with their foster mom for quite some time making sure they are recovering and healthy and ready for a true lifelong family. Here is what their foster mom has said:
They are both extremely loving to their human and love attention and snuggles.
They both love to sleep with me at night. Ricky sleeps right up next to me. Lucy likes a bit of her own space but they both stay right close all night long. Neither one can get on the bed on their own so once on for the night, they pretty much stay put.
Lucy is very attentive and listens much better than Ricky. For example, when outside I have had them now leash free in the yard and she will come when called much better than he will. Even with the new discovery of squirrels, she will run to chase them but when she hears me sternly call her name she turns right around.
Neither one of them will ask to go out so staying on top of when and what they do outside is necessary
They are both great in a crate together. They are crated (in a very large crate) during the day while I am at work but they can be left out of the crate for a couple of hours at a time unsupervised. I will leave them out if I am just going to be gone for a little while.
I believe they would do best with a quiet family surrounding, possibly a single person or couple that would make them the center of attention. I lean this way because of Ricky's coughing and having a calm environment would help him in the long run. Neither one of them is going to require a lot of stimulation or high activity. They will run around and play for about an hour and then they're done and wiped out.
