This is Lucy. We love Lucy. We loved her the moment we read the email from our friends at Toronto Animal Services…
is a sweet, senior girl with no behavioural issues. She is a total doll with humans and other friendly like-minded dogs. She
doesn't think much of the overly obnoxious ones. We estimate her to be about 8 years old. She has some mild dental issues,
some skin tags and cysts associated with aging, but nothing glaring to speak of. We suspect the cysts are benign but will
likely be recurring and may have the potential to make her uncomfortable if they grow too large. She's been vaccinated for
DA2PP/Rabies/Bordatella, spayed, microchipped, dewormed and is currently on a course of antibiotics for her skin.
We love Lucy.
We love her enough to put aside our financial worries.
But we must act quickly.
The shelter is currently at their max with abandoned dogs and they may have the start
of a Kennel Cough outbreak on their hands. Lucy has started to cough. Being an older dog, her best defence against this upper
respiratory infection so common in shelter circumstances would be to get out of the shelter asap and into a quiet and peaceful
enivornment while undergoing a course of antibiotics for 3 weeks.
So we are in search of a loving foster home (with no other dogs as it is contagious) for dear little Lucy.
In fact, if you're looking to adopt a lovely beagle, we would consider a Foster to Adopt scenario in Lucy's case. We suspect
she is highly adoptable and will only require minimal veterinary care at this time.
