Grant found Lucy 3 weeks ago dumped along a country road in the middle of nowhere south of Terre Haute. He thought he saw a big squirrel and pulled over to check it out. Poor little puppy was beyond filthy and lonely. Grant took her right in (he's wanted another dog for years). He had her bathed and vaccinated before he even brought her home to meet the family.
It's taken a bit to get her spiffied up. She was covered in an oily film. I've taken, no exaggeration, 50 ticks off of her. She was coated in fleas, might have mange (mites), and we are taking care of her worms. yuck!
So far she has a wonderful personality! We aren't use to having a dog around that wants to please us. She loves people, kids, and most of all Grant! She wants to love Sadie, but Sadie is making that part a little difficult...
It's taking me a bit to adjust to having her. I didn't want one more thing under my feet, to feed, bathe, or clean up poop after. However, like children, she'll be worth it in the long run ;)
At least we got a super duper cute pup.
Sadie didn't mind her around too bad while she was digging.
Lucy was really really excited to watch.
These are from her first full day home.
she was about 8 weeks old when found
she was in a ditch with no houses around, and Grant didn't see a mother
maybe a beagle/ collie mix
if you have any ideas on breed mixes we are all ears
Grant is smitten with her and Lillian is in love.
