Although Lucy loves her own people, she can be quite shy when meeting new people. She likes to give strangers that come over her house a good barking at, but quickly realizes that your friends are her friends. Out and about she can be nervous about meeting new people, and will sometimes try to hide behind her foster mom. It is usually only a matter of minutes though before she realizes that new people are just as good at giving her attention. Lucy is also very nervous around young children, and so this, combined with her shyness, makes us think she would do best in a home with adults and older children.
Lucy does not enjoy loud barking dogs, she feels the need to return the favor. Otherwise, she has done great at meeting a variety of new dogs out and about while in rescue. As with her foster brother, she has not had any interest in playing or interacting with them.
Lucy came into rescue quite overweight and with some skin infections. Her ideal home will be one that can commit to taking her for walks and hikes to keep her exercised and socialized in a positive way. And of course, shower her with the endless love and attention she deserves!
Lucy is being fostered in Maine.
