Lucy is a wonderful GSD (and I guess crossed with Sheltie per size and fur type) who has been dealt a rough deck of cards across her life. She was originally adopted by an acquaintance from a shelter at age 2 (no knowledge prior). Then she was abandoned in their backyard last Mar for 3 months and fed out of a cut dog food bag and bucket of water. When we got her, she was eaten up with fleas, suffering from malnutrition, and positive for heartworms, so we did a full treatment (finished in Jan 23). She is such a trooper, beautiful (enough to make you smile), smart, loves life and wants to protect her people (sometimes barks at dogs she sees in the window walking by like she's so bad, ha). I would keep her in a second if my permanent 75 lb female GSD would accept her (our male Belgian loves her). But after 8 months of trying to integrate, we still have to keep one of them in a kennel and know keeping them both isn't fair to either. I want to find Lucy a loving home she so deserves where she is accepted by all and can live out her life comfortable and feeling safe.
