27-09-2016 Lucy is a 2 year old female Collie cross who has come to us to find her forever home. She was adopted for a short time but has been returned through no fault of her own. Lucy hasn't experienced much of home life and it will take her some time to adjust to living in a home and to learn what is expected of her. She is a very happy, energetic little girl who knows how to walk on a lead. She could be homed as an only dog in the right circumstances but she would learn about house training and life as a pet much easier with another dog who she can copy. Lucy is absolutley adorable will make an amazing addition to the family so if you would like to offer the sweet girl her long awaited forever home please apply.
What can i say about Lucy? Firstly she is a beautiful girl who loves EVERYONE. Lucy loves to run around the sand school with her ball and she also comes back when I call her name and show her I have a treat. She takes these very gently from your hands if you tell her "Gently".
When she first came into us she didn’t have a clue how to greet a dog so Matt and I have been working with her. She loves to run with other dogs while they are playing ball, but she can be quite barky. Lucy will be best suited as an only dog or a home with bigger dogs.
She is a glorious dog that just wants to please everyone. Day in and day out she sits in the front of her kennel seeing other dogs come and go and she’s just stuck there. Lucy loves to explore through long grass and loves her long walks down to the stream. She would love a home to call her own and she so deserves it. She is an absolute pleasure to work with. Everyone here loves her.
She has been out with me on a bike but she gets very nervous when I am cycling. Lucy is looking for a cat free home but she could be homed with other dogs who are bigger than her, or in the right circumstances as an only dog. Lucy is a very confident girl and is just dying to get out of kennels. She’s been here far too long. Lucy also gets on very well with horses and she walks perfect on a lead with light correction. She will sit and give her paw for her dinner or treats. She’s not one to be missed out on.
Lucy is still waiting for her forever home, I've been trying to find new things to do to save her getting board, so we have been on all different adventures today. Her morning started of playing in the sand school with 10 other dogs and she wasn’t a problem, as long as she’s in a group of dogs that love to play she is fine, so if homed with another dog he/she must be active and able to keep up with her. Then she had her lunch and went for a walk down to the stream for a paddle, this is one of her favourite things to do. Then we went into the round pen to have one 2 one time with her and Finn, they are a great match as there both full of beans, so as i write this Lucy is sleeping in her basket very tired as she’s had quite a day of it. She was a born runner so she does run VERY fast. She would suit a family that are very active or even agility. Lucy is very good with all people, but i wouldn’t home her with younger children as i would be afraid that she would run into them and knock them. Lucy isn’t one to miss out on, we would love it if she was to find her home before Christmas.
What a beautiful dog !
Can't believe no ones snapped her up, she's so loving and loves nothing more than being with you and having a cuddle on the sofa . Lucy could be an only dog and this girl deserves a lovely home so please if your looking for a dog to join your family or have as a companion she will reward you with love.
Lucy has been in foster with me for a couple of weeks, to say she's settled is an understatement! She has got such a beautiful nature about her, the way in which she plays is a good way to look at it...with my big Shepard and Retriever she plays quite full on, however with Charlotte my disabled Pomeranian she is so gentle and respectful, every time she greets her she is very calm which shows how good her understanding is. When the dogs aren't playing, Lucy loves to cuddle next to you on the sofa and she'd happily stay there all day if you were going to! She has been clean in the house since she's been with me, as long as you have her in a routine she is fine.
With Lucy I knew exercising her was going to be the main issue, as she was so bored and stressed in kennels that she had so much energy built up inside her that she didn't know how to control it, so I've been doing recall training with her and she's impressed me no end! We've been in fields, beaches and woodlands and she's been good as gold. Lucy is the type of dog that would hate just doing road walks, she needs to be off having excitement, new smells, new dogs, new things for her to roll around in!! She loves to explore, she is such a fit dog that she could go for hours if that's what you wanted also, however I've been ill last couple of days and haven't been able to take her out much and she hasn't played up, she's just realised that's more time sleeping on the sofa! Lucy has got quite a strong mindset so will need an owner who has got an even bigger one to be able to get her full potential out of her. She is a fun companion to have, she could go as an only as long as she were to have the right amount of exercise and not to be left bored. If she were to go to a home with dogs, I'd advise bigger ones who she can play with to help with her playtime outside!!
Lucy has been in foster with me and my pack for a couple of months now and even though there's been a few applications they haven't fitted the criteria that Lucy needs. What is vital is;
Lucy has had a few people interested in however no ones come forward just yet that fits the criteria.
I've been working with her one on one recently more than in a pack environment and she reacts a lot better.
She loves to play with a tennis ball and throws it around for herself! Lucy runs very well next to you and loves to compete! She is a lot more obedient when she hasn't got a dog to distract her but that's not to say she isn't improving, she loves to play!
Lucy loves meeting new people, she loves children and if there were a family there would be more people to tire her out!
You won't get a more affectionate dog than her, especially on the bed! She loves to curl up in a ball so you don't realise she is there!
An active person who enjoys their exercise but wants a calm cuddly dog in the house is required!
