Tired of answering questions about your relationship status over the holidays? Consider a committed relationship with our girl LUCY LIU! She’s a sweet and loyal companion who will happily snuggle up to you at the end of the day and not ask you about your job or roll her eyes when you tell her how much you just spent at Boxing Day sales. Overall, she’s calm, cool and collected in most situations. She’s a pretty low energy dog and is more interested in chilling at home than playing fetch at the park. That said, she does enjoy getting outside for a few shorter walks per day. Usually, 30 mins at a time are good before she starts losing interest. She rarely loses interest in napping though. LUCY is very loyal/affectionate and of course, would love to spend as much time with her humans as possible but needs to continue working on her independence. She has shown some signs of separation anxiety (barking when alone) but has been improving with a consistent crate routine and structure. For example, if she’s whining to be let out of the crate and you let her out she’s going to realize that crying works and then cry more the next time. She does get a little vocal from time to time so a house would be a better fit for her.. LUCY can be nervous meeting new people (especially men) if they are hunched over so getting down on her level and allowing her to approach first is key. She is a very human-friendly pooch and will warm up quickly with proper intros. She would be fine in a home with older children who can respect her laid-back lifestyle. She’s been ok with other dogs who can match her energy but hasn’t shown too much interest in playing with them. She hasn’t been tested with cats but she does live with a hedgehog and doesn’t even care that she’s there. If you’d like to meet LUCY LIU fill out an application to adopt today!
