Stats: 6 years old, female
Adoption Fee: $275
This is Lucy, a 6 year old standard girl whose family encountered life changes and they knew they were not able to properly care for her. As always, we won't disparage an owner who asked for help with their dog. But as a general rule and something for everyone to learn from - this is another obese dog. She's 70 lbs. and should probably be about 35-40 lbs. This is absolutely negatively impacting her health - she can barely walk at all outside on a cloudy, not overly hot day before she seems on the brink of passing out. She wheezes as she breathes as her lungs struggle to work through all that fat. A dog her age should be able to run and play with ease. We will get her back there, but it's a long road with lots of work. Please make sure you don't let your dogs get like this - it is literally killing them. You'll also note her coat is missing as she was shaved down which we strongly disagree with on any double-coated dog. We can't wait to see this girl when she's 30 lbs. lighter with her beautiful full Aussie coat! We'll help you get there girl! Welcome to LSAR Lucy!
** Please note - Lucy will be not be ready for adoption for some time while we work to get her to a healthy weight, so we will not be reviewing any applications for her until that time. We will post a full bio for her once she is ready for adoption.
