Update on Lucie Feb 1, 2015

Lucie patiently waiting for pets ! LV Pet Expo, 1/31/15
Lucie, new foster, is waiting patiently to meet new people at the Pet Expo! She has been with us for about 2 weeks now. She is a 5 1/2 year old female, who is UTD on shots, heartworm and lyme negative, and will be spayed prior to adoption. She loves going out for walks, and her tail is always curled up and bouncing around! She is a shy, timid husky, due to poor socialization and being confined to a kennel for most of her life. She is working on learning the rules of living indoors, including potty training. She is working on crate training, and has some good days, and some bad days in the crate. Some days she goes in there voluntarily and lays down, other days she howls while in the crate. She is a vocal little girl who has, on many occasions, pranced around the yard howling! She is making progress everyday, and learning that humans are a great source of pets and chin scratches! She is friendly and interested in other dogs, any size. She is playful with the two male huskies in her foster home. Due to her timid nature, she would enjoy a quiet and calm home, possibly with another dog! We do not think she is cat friendly. She is currently being fostered in Lehigh Valley, PA. She will start training Feb 7th, 2015 with our wonderful trainers from Passion For Paws! Stay tuned for more updates on Lucie's progress!

Meet Lucie!

We have a new foster who arrived this past weekend. She has been named Lucie, after Lucille Ball, since she is a red and white husky! She is 5 1/2 years old. She is doing great thus far, and has made some progress since coming into the foster home. When she arrived she was very dirty, so after 4 washes with Nature's Miracle "Tough on Dirt" Shampoo, her beautiful coat is showing! Her fur is a little coarse and thin at the moment, but we are certain it will improve over time, and especially with the FreshPet she has been eating. She's hesitant to walk on the leash by herself, but if other dogs are leading the way, she is happy to follow. She enjoys her time in the crate, as that is her den. She is working on manners and potty training as she is currently a counter surfer and has had a few accidents in the house. She gets along great with the other huskies in the home. Lucie is also a howler, and at night will sing before bedtime, We will try to capture this on video, but she does seem a bit shy to sing on camera. Lucie needs a lot of training and socialization, so she is not ready to be adopted. She is currently in heat and will need to be spayed after that. She is currently being fostered in Lehigh Valley, PA. Please check back for updates on Lucie and her journey! Check out the pictures below to see Lucie's transformation this past weekend!
