Dog of the Week: Legacy (Lucy)

Julia D Dog of the Week

Hi, Lucy here! My name was Legacy when I arrived in Iowa, but my foster family thought Lucy was much cuter!  I lived in a crowded shelter with my brother Reggie in south Texas before Last Hope swooped us up. Reggie has found his forever home, but I’m still searching for mine! I am nine months old (8/18) and I LOVE everyone, though I think small children are toys, so older children would probably be a better fit for me (I don’t bite them, I just knock them over with my kisses and chew on their yummy feet! I don’t know why they get so upset!). I got really excited and barky when I met a cat recently, but I don’t try to hurt them. I just want to play, but I don’t understand why they keep scratching me!

Having another playful dog close to my age and size would be ideal for me. I love to wrestle endlessly with my foster sibling as I have tons of energy, but I settle down nicely in my crate when I’m alone and I sleep all night in my foster mom’s bed. If you don’t have another young dog, you would need to be very active with me! I would be very unhappy if I had to stay in a crate all day long. Since I came to Iowa, I’ve gotten taller and very agile and have come close to clearing my foster family’s four-foot fence. True to my breed (mountain cur), I am very loyal to my family and I bark at people walking by my house. I wouldn’t hurt anyone, but my bark will sure keep intruders away! But most importantly, I need a family who will be active with me. I am bred to work, which means I need a lot of exercise to be happy. I love to give kisses and sleep in and would do anything for my family. I am a big kisser and I love to curl myself above my foster mom’s head or snuggle up on top of my four-legged foster sister.

Legacy’s adoption fee is $300 which includes spay surgery, being up to date on vaccinations, a microchip with free lifetime registration, and a free obedience class. If you’re interested in this cutie, please complete an application HERE or email
