Golden Retriever / Poodle (Standard) / Mixed (medium coat) : : Female : : Adult
Lucy is a 5-year-old Goldendoodle that favors her Golden parent more than her Poodle parent. Her owner had to sell her home and move in with her son and could not take the dog. Lucy was already spayed and up to date on her vaccines. However, at the foster’s home a short time after engaging in some play with the resident dog, Lucy was limping. An orthopedic specialist determined that Lucy had a torn cruciate ligament, so AGR had surgery done to repair the leg. Lucy is a wonderful, sweet girl who just loves attention, whether it’s from people or other dogs. She is very smart and playful, in addition to being very cute. She loves to swim, play tug and go for walks. Everyone loves Lucy including her new mom who said:
Lucy, Lucy Goosey, Luze Goose, Lucifer. No matter which name I call her, I LOVE LUCY ! Lucy is my first official foster failure. I am so happy that she is, since I did not see that in the very near future that I would have to say goodbye to my 14-year-old Goldendoodle, Jack, on December 22nd. I was asked to foster Lucy for just a couple of days in early June. I was hesitant since I had just said goodbye to 10 ½-year-old Nash, my first AGR rescue. I was thinking what could a few days hurt, plus it would be good for Jack to have a friend around again. Well, Lucy had other ideas about only being a foster. Her letter from her former owner said Lucy never gets on the furniture, never begs, and hardly sheds. It was within the first 5 minutes of being at my house that she had made herself comfortable on my couch with no intentions of moving, shedding everywhere, and drooling for a piece of popcorn! Lucy also loves to steal just one shoe out of a pair from my closet, dish towels off the kitchen counter, T-shirts off my dresser, and any other fun thing she can find. She doesn’t destroy these items, just carries them around proudly as her prized possessions. However, stuffed animals or stuffed toys of any strength are no match for Lucy – she will have them “blown up” in 2 minutes flat with stuffing scattered all through the house. If you are in my kitchen while Lucy is eating, you’d better have shoes on. I have never seen a dog eat like she does. Lucy will take a mouth full of food, walk away from her bowl and spit out the food as she goes, leaving a huge mess trail. But not to worry, she will go back and eat every bite of kibble eventually. Lucy cannot wait for the pool to warm up. She definitely is a princess and will not swim in cold water. When she is in the pool, she loves to be held like a baby and sung to, especially Garth Brooks songs. Lucy has already enjoyed AGR events and loves meeting all her new Golden friends. She brings me joy every day when I miss Nash and Jack sorely.
This foster failure happened just at the perfect time for both the adopter and Lucy!
