Lucy may have been looking for love when wandering about in Blount County, Tennessee. Picked up as a stray on November 26th, this two-year-old Bully Breed mix was taken to the Blount County Animal Center shelter. Lucy had a microchip but the phone number associated with the chip was inactive. The microchip company attempted to find Lucy’s owner’s as well but had no luck. Despite her attractive personality and beautiful black and white fur coat, Lucy waited and waited for love in the shelter. No one contacted the shelter about her or came looking for her. Besides being a less-noticed black dog, Lucy had a big barrier to adoption or rescue. Lucy tested positive for heartworms and the cost of treatment is high.

Stephanie Garrett, RADAR’s liaison with the Blount County Animal Center shelter, reached out to RADAR on January 24th to see if we could assist with Lucy’s heartworm treatment costs. We agreed to help, and Lucy had her heartworm treatments on February 20th and March 25th.

“Lucy has a great demeanor, is wonderful with children and is very smart,” Stephanie told us. “She enjoys sitting for treats and going for walks. She is a very polite young dog.”  Now that Lucy is on the path to good health, she is seeking an adopter or rescue that will love Lucy! Be sure to view more photos in Lucy’s gallery.

RADAR paid all $404 of the heartworm treatment costs for Lucy.

UPDATE! All funds for Lucy have been raised! Thank you!
