Lucy 1812

1 year old · Adoptable · $125

Considering adopting? The first step is to complete our online Adoption Application.
Please do not call the shelter; do the application first.

Lucy, a border collie mix, was born 11/6/22 and weighs about 50 lbs. Lucy was returned to the shelter after her original adopters sadly determined she just wasn't the right fit for them, nor they for Lucy.

This sleek bodied girl is full of energy and would love a home with an active family who would like to take her hiking or on other outdoor adventures. Lucy has spent a lot of her life in the shelter so she will need an experienced dog owner to teach her the rules of her new home. She does very well with her routine here and we believe she will adapt well in a patient home that could also provide her with a routine to follow. She has a touch of "stranger danger" but warms up quickly.

Lucy gets along with most other dogs but we believe she would do best as an only dog in the home, with friends outside of the home to play with. She is not such a fan of cats. She is kennel trained, potty trained, and has learned commands such as sit and wait. We do not recommend children for this high energy girl.

Lucy is a busy girl with high intelligence. We just know the right family is out there waiting for her!

All pets arrive spayed/neutered, dewormed, microchipped and vaccinated. Adoption fee for Lucy is a suggested minimum of $125 (more gratefully accepted). All pets are placed with a 30-day money-back trial period, to give pet and family enough time to discover any unknown allergies or other conflicts.

Can't come to Republic? Don't let that stop you! We have monthly transports to the Seattle area, delivering adopted pets to their new owners. If you can add a little to your donation to help us cover our volunteer driver's expenses, that would be great!
