Meet little Lucy.
She is dreaming of her perfect forever home. It has no children.
This pretty 6.1-pound girl was surrendered by her owner so that CCRT could place her in a loving forever home where she will not be stressed out by children. Like some toy-sized dogs, Lucy does not appreciate kids, and she was unhappy living with them.
Lucy is a chocolate-brown and tan Chihuahua. Her short coat is as soft as velvet, and you will love stroking her. She is a young nine years of age, in great condition, and really enjoys going for walks on leash, chasing birds and squirrels, and playing with her toys. She does fixate on certain stuffies. Her favourite game is playing fetch with her ball.
Once Lucy gets to know you, which does not take long, she will give you lovely kisses. You need to earn her trust by handling her gently. She is very affectionate and loves to cuddle while talking in your ear. Lucy bonds quickly with her human and likes to be close. In foster care, it has taken time to condition her to being more comfortable when left alone for short periods.
Since arriving in foster care, Lucy has been examined by CCRT’s vet, vaccinated, had routine blood work done along with a heartworm test (negative), and she has had her teeth cleaned. Her teeth are good and she has no known health issues. She was already spayed and micro-chipped.
Lucy must have an adult-only forever home with a calm environment where her dog-savvy human is home most of the day to spend quality time with her. She is used to living in a house with a safely fenced backyard. She is house-trained and does not use pee pads.
At first, Lucy was well-behaved with visiting dogs in her foster home. However, now that she has settled in, it is evident that she needs to be an only dog in her forever home to avoid jealousy issues. Apparently, she has lived with cats at some time in the past.
If you are interested in adopting Lucy, please fill out an adoption application. You can also purchase a sweater and/or blanket for her or any of our foster dogs. Please consider becoming a CCRT Sponsorship Angel for any of our foster dogs by making a cash donation towards their care.
