Not knowing Lucy’s background, 4 Paws doesn’t know why, but she doesn’t like other dogs and other dogs do not like her. She would need to be in a home where she was the only pet. Lucy is a Lab mix, golden in color. Adoption fees are $65. Call 251-DOGS today for more information. Go see all the dogs at the shelter at 290 Rodeo Road.
