Lucky is a 5-month-old, terrier-mix puppy who weighs about 30 lbs. She has cute "radar" ears, and is a sweet, happy girl who is fantastic to be around.
She's lucky, in part, because she was scheduled to be put to sleep at Pasco County Animal Services for overcrowding reasons, but she got a second chance at life when the Suncoast Animal League rescued her.
Lucky is very loving and sweet with people, but she must have had some scary experiences in the past. It takes her a while to adapt to new surroundings and she is nervous around new dogs at times. She's just a baby and what we've seen has been fear, not aggression, so with training and socialization with the right owner, she should outgrow this quickly and be a fantastic dog. However, for this reason, we suggest that she should be adopted by a family who has experience with raising puppies and does not have pre-school aged children.
She would also benefit from living with an older, well trained dog who could be her mentor. Once she knows and trusts another dog, she's playful and good with them. Lucky is crate trained, is getting close to being house trained and is learning basic commands.
So who will be the lucky family? If you think this cutie might be the one for you, please call the Suncoast Animal League office at 727-786-1330 to make an appointment with her foster family.
