CHINOOK — Lucy, a 50-pound Shepherd/red healer mix, arrived at PAWS of Chinook as a stray and is now being fostered by a volunteer family.
In her foster home Lucy gets to play with other dogs and children. Her foster family says she adapts quickly to new schedules and environments.
Lucy is nearly two years old and has been vaccinated and spayed. PAWS of Chinook manager Alissa Hewitt says Lucy is ready to be adopted and recommends a family with other dogs because Lucy is so social.
“Lucy is so playful but more than that, she’s super loving. Big time cuddler. She’ll follow you all around the house but she also keeps her own space as long as she can keep an eye on her family, she’s happy,” said Hewitt. “As far as quirks, she doesn’t really have much. She’s great with kids, great with other dogs, and great with all people. She’s just a really calm dog."
According to Hewitt the only thing to really consider when applying to adopt is that Lucy is not a fan of cats, and PAWS of Chinook does require owners to have a fenced yard to adopt.
Adoption fees for Lucy are $100. Applications are required and can be found under the ‘Animals’ tab on the PAWS of Chinook website.
