Description

Lacy was surrendered to us due to a baby on the way and there would be no room for Lacy.   It is obvious she was not well cared for as she came to us obese, weighing 107 lbs. and should only weigh around 70 lbs.  She also came to us with a skin infection and some fur loss, which our vet feels is caused by lack of care and poor quality food.  She is being treated for the skin infection, put on a diet, good quality food, along with exercise that she obviously did not get in her last home.  She is settling into her foster home and dealing with the changes of her new life.  She is confused with some whining, but that is expected with the changes.  She is very sweet and friendly with everyone she has met. 
 

Updates

Lacy is doing really well in her foster home. She's working on getting exercise to drop some weight so she can be more comfortable, she's being a fed a food that should help her skin and her lose weight, and her skin is clearing up some with antibiotics from MAGSR's vet. On her walks, Lacy will react a little to cars on her walks, and a squirrel here and there. Lacy does great in the house and prefers she have the house and her humans all to herself so she gets all the attention. Lacy is very sweet and is waiting to meet you.

Lacy has been doing really well in her foster home. Lacy is such a sweet girl. Lacy does not like thunderstorms. Lacy does fairly good in the crate and she lets her humans know when she needs to go outside. Lacy is somewhat protective of her food. Lacy is very alert and will let her humans know when she hears a noise outside. When on walks, Lacy has a few triggers and reacts to passing bicycles, some cars, and she's always on squirrel alert - otherwise, Lacy is great to walk and loves going. Lacy likes to sleep on doggie beds and couches and she will sleep most of the day. Lacy has some interest in playing with balls now & then. If this laid back girl sounds like she could be a good fit for your home, ask to meet Lacy.

Lacy has really come out of her shell in her foster home, where she lives with no kids, dogs or cats and is the center of her human’s attention. She has a sweet, laid back temperament and is very intelligent, clever and mischievous. She loves playing soccer, and she spends a lot of the day keeping watch for lizards, bugs, squirrels and other creatures in the yard. And she's a professional napper. Lacy likes to cuddle, though usually won't do so voluntarily. Lacy has come so far in her weight loss journey with a food cut and daily exercise, and while we don't have an exact number yet, she looks to be close to a healthy weight. She's more agile and mobile when walking and playing. Lacy is fully housebroken and has an understanding of basic commands,
but her forever owners will need to work on reinforcing those with her. Lacy has a few triggers that need some work, including squirrels, foxes, deer, rabbits, other small animals including small dogs, bikes (!), thunder, fireworks, and some beeping sounds such as delivery trucks. Lacy likes car rides but she has exhibited some anxiety in the car. Lacy will alert if there is someone on the property, but she has never shown aggression towards a person, including on walks--unless, of course, they're on a bike. If you're looking for a sweet, laid back girl who can be the center of attention in your home, Lacy might be perfect for you.
