LUCY LOVES TO WRESTLE AND RUN WITH HER MATES

This 6-month-old, 9 lb. sweetie, a mix of Yorkie and Powder Puff, is slowly getting used to humans. Lucy spent her first 6 months running amuck with her littermates with zero socialization. Although still skittish and prone to hiding, she will now come for treats and can occasionally be picked up and cuddled, but on her terms.

Lucy is totally attached to her gang and loves to run, fetch toys and particularly chew on anything available. Her adopter will need to have a steady supply of dog friendly chew toys. Where she comes from everything was fair game—wood, plants, paper, garbage…

Harbouring many of the characteristics of a puppy mill dog, Lucy could be a flight risk and needs an experienced (with fearful dogs) and patient family who will allow her the time it will take to become more confident, learn to walk outdoors with a harness and leash and to be housetrained.. Lucy must be adopted together with a member of her pack or to a home with another young, playful and confident dog that she can bond with.

Lucy is neutered, vaccinated and microchipped.

FIRM REQUIREMENTS: Experience with timid dogs. No condos or apartments, children 14+, a securely fenced yard, swimming pools only if fenced separately, someone home a good part of the day. Lucy must be adopted together with a pack mate or with another small dog or more in the home. A cat OK if used to dogs.
