You may have seen us post about Lucy before. She has been with ECPR for a while, and she has found a very special place in all of our hearts.
Lucy is an incredible, unique dog! She is a 3-year-old cattle dog mix and although she is beyond wonderful with people, she came to us with dog reactivity.
Our staff was not intimidated by her challenges in the least. Over the last weeks, they have been working with her every day to create a positive-reinforcement training plan to help desensitize her to being around other dogs.
When Lucy first came to us, she did not know how to socialize with other dogs. The moment she saw another dog, she would bark and try with all of her might to tug on her leash and get to that dog. Now, after the time we’ve spent with her training, she is able to have other dogs passing by her and in her visual range, and when asked to pay attention to her human handler instead of the dog, she obeys immediately.
All dogs are intelligent in their own ways, but Lucy has one of those minds that never stops working! You can see in her sparkling eyes that she is always thinking and always seeking a new puzzle to solve.
Lucy is looking for a home where she can be the only pet. She adores human attention and wants ALL of it! She is very active and she would do well in a home where she can go on lots of adventures. Her ideal home would include human parents who are willing to learn about the training plan we have been implementing with her and making sure that continues after adoption so that Lucy can continue to be the best possible version of herself. Lucy also thrives on brain games, she may do very well with agility, or even just puzzles and find-the-hidden-treat games.
If you’re an active person looking for a loyal best friend to join you on your daily adventures through life, Lucy may be the girl for you! To learn more about Lucy or if you’re interested in meeting her, give us a call at 206 557 4661
