Tell me a bit about yourself? My name is Lucy and I am a fabulous Mature Bloodhound with the perfect dose of sass and silly antics.
Whats your favorite pass time? Where to start.. I love to spy on all my neighbors from the window. I also like to find a good chew bone, cozy spot on the couch and relax with my chew toy. I also enjoy walks and a dip in the kiddie pool my foster family got for me. I love to dunk my face in the water and take big drinks.
What would your ideal adoptive home be? My Adopters should have a home with a fenced in yard at least 5 ft plus. I like to run and chase small critters so it would keep me safe. It should be a home without kitties or other female dogs that are big.. I do great with small dogs and male dogs with proper slow introductions. My foster mom's Chihuahuas are my BFFs. I would also like a home all to myself as the only pup too. I do well with all humans and little humans as well. I would not do well in apartment or shared wall living.
What skills do you have? I am potty trained. Crate trained I even go in when asked. I know how to sit and even shake! I will sometimes throw up two paws! I also have a fabulous hound singing voice. I am good with baths, nail trims, ear cleaning, and vet visits!
What skills could you work on more? I love to go for walks but need to walk in a more remote place as I get pretty worked up when I see other dogs out walking with their pup parents. I also love to steal rags and food off the counters! I think its super fun but my foster mom doesn't seem to think its as fun as I do.
What other things should we know about you? I am a super healthy gal but take medication daily to help me with urinary incontinence. That means I sometimes leak urine when hanging out or sleeping, but with my medicine I do not leak at all! Yay me! I am super a sweet girl and have been looking for my furever home for a long time now!
Whats your history? I joined my foster family back in Feb of 2017. I joined them after a local MN shelter I was staying at requested to transfer me from the shelter to a foster based rescue to help me find a home in an environment more suitable for myself. I was at that shelter because I was found running around as a stray.
