Lucy and George

Lucy and George

"We adopted Lucy in early January and she has been such a delight!

"When the shelter found her, she was in pretty bad shape. She was significantly underweight and had a giant burn on her back. After several months of love and care, I am happy to report she is at a healthy weight and her scar just gives her more character.

"She is extremely affectionate and loves to cuddle. We are extremely grateful for finding her. She has been a blessing to our family!"

"After a few months of bonding with her we decided she needed a friend! We introduced Lucy to George (formerly named Doak) in early April and they really seemed to hit it off.

"A week later we brought George home and the two of them have been best friends since. George is extremely energetic and loves his time playing with Lucy at the dog park. We are so happy to have him in our family."
