Default Miss Lucy

Lucy is currently taking up residence in my home. I am fostering her through One Heeler At A Time, which is in southeast Indiana.

Lucy is most likely an ACD/smooth coated BC. She is an awesome dog, truly. Needs a little work on impulse control and learning to have an off switch, but other than that, she is great. Knows most of the basic commands, and we have been working (inconsistently) on down and recall. Sits are pretty solid unless there is a lot going on. She's great on a leash, good with meeting other dogs. Awesome potential to be a sports dog. Very biddable, pretty soft, definitely a people please'r. Great toy drive, awesome tug, loves to fetch. LIVES for her Kong.

I would recommend she go to a home without cats, as she does have herding instinct and a decent prey drive. Also, she should go to a home without any dominant females (males maybe as well?).

Lucy went with me to the pet store today (with Josh and Harlow in tow), and met up with Danielle and Sir.

Wasn't expecting to make it into the store with her, as she has been known to be a little skittish and nervous, however, she freaking rocked the socks of me. She had awesome focus, pretty decent recovery time when she got distracted, and was very responsive to any command I gave her.

We worked on heels, sits, downs, and focus work/name recognition. She WAY exceeded my expectations. This dog will make somebody a great dog with just a little work. She needs to work on dog greeting (she is just a little awkward), but other than that, awesome.

I haven't! I don't know why! She seriously takes everything in stride, and is awesome. Now that I'm getting to know her better, I am able to take her out and do more things.. so I'm hoping that will help to spark some interest. And she is gorgeous. I keep telling myself she will not become a failed foster. Lol.

Some new pictures of Luce!

We've been letting her off leash at my family's lake off of the road, and she has done fantastic! She has really strong prey drive, so I was worried at first, but I've had no issues. She loves, loves, loves to play.

Sure you don't need another?

She was not feeling good as of last night. Had some gross poop accidents in her crate.. Taking a fecal to the vet tomorrow! Fun. Hoping it is nothing too bad.
