This is Lucy, a  lab golden retriever mix that should have been named 'Lucky, because she's had a rough life and she's lucky she's made it this long. First off her left front leg was broken, and it healed wrong. The vet says "just leave it alone, it doesn't seem to hurt her she'll be just fine". Then some how her tail got chopped off and it looks as if she has been on her own for a long time. All that said, Lucy is a very sweet and extremely lovable pet. She really needs a animal lover to take her in, because in my opinion she's due to be a winner.

I can't quit thinking about Lucy, she is laying heavy on my heart because I know how so many people want a 'perfect dog', and if that was the case in real in life, I would be just like Lucy. Okay, so she's not your everyday run of the mill Westminster Breeding Association bloodline. She is an awesome dog who healed herself and has continued to survive no matter what the odds are against her. Lucy needs a home now for the simple fact that this is the kind of dog that is put to sleep because "she's not perfect".

Okay, now lets see if we can save another innocent critter this week. Can you please help save Lucy? Tell your friends, coworkers, family and just about anyone that can appreciate the story of a dog that nearly lost in life but won at the last second, because you cared enough and you came to her rescue. As of this post on Monday, September 3rd Lucy has one week left to live. Let's save Lucy.

More Info:

Lucy came in as a stray, for all I know she is not house broken nor do I think she's an indoor dog. In fact when I went to see her, she was the only dog in all the pounds kennels that was resting outside. Lucy needs shots micro-chipping and to be fixed. Lucy can be seen at the Animal Control Shelter.

Please visit the Abilene Animal Shelter and help save Lucy.
