Lucy's loving, trusting and caring to the point of being just a bit needy (as in always needing to be petted.) She's gentle to a fault to the point where the kids in our neighborhood (ages two and up) have made her a required "play date" .She's so non aggressive it's like she read Mahatma Ghandi's guide to the art of pacifism. She's a Lab so she sheds, and she needs to lose weight as well. So if we love Lucy why are we looking to give her away? Well it seems our family is due for an addition which means less attention for Lucy. My job is changing to include way more travel., If you want a warm caring definition of "man's best friend personified" to join you on walks or jogs in the warm weather you will LOVE Lucy. A family with kids is preferable--as is a house in the suburbs (Lucy loves room, we live on an acre in a cul de sac and she's top dog in these parts). We just had her to the vet and the 20lbs aside, she's in great health. Make no mistake as goofy as she is, coming home to her xuberant 'puppy like" welcome never failed to put a smile on my face. Her new family should be as loving and gentle as she is--because she doesn't just deserve it but will respond to it as well. Last item? She's an amazing 'greeter'-- her beyond puppylike welcome when I come through the door never fails to put a smile on my face. If you are interested in adopting Lucy, please email firstname.lastname@example.org for an application. All applicants will be screened and a home visit is required.
