Adoptable Dog Of The Week – Lucy

Looking for a forever home to call her own, Lucy is our Adoptable Dog of the Week. This lovely lady is a 7-year-old Weimaraner from Des Moines, Iowa. Lucy is purebred, up to date with shots, good with kids, and good with dogs.

Lucy’s Story:

Meet Lucy! She is a 7-year-old sweet girl who came to Heartland Weimaraner Rescue as an owner-surrender. Lucy came in a bit overweight, weighing 95 pounds, but has been working hard on regaining her girlish figure and is down to 80 pounds! She is house trained and crate trained, and she stays in a crate while her foster mom is away. Lucy is a great girl and does not go looking for trouble, but like a typical Weimaraner, you probably don’t want to leave your sandwich unattended! She knows basic commands, and has been doing well with leash training. She is focused and loves to learn new things. Lucy is a true “Velcro” dog and will follow you everywhere you go. She loves to go for rides and does well in the car. She is sociable, affectionate and welcomes all visitors eagerly, although she is polite and doesn’t jump. Lucy shares her foster home with several small herding dogs, and she is great with their infatuation with her. Lucy is spayed, up to date on vaccines and prevention and is microchipped.
