06/25/2017 WEB MEMO
A staff member writes:Lucy girl, you are a diamond in the ruff. She has such a precious and soothing face. Those beautiful grayish eyes will melt your heart and her gentle touch will make you fall in love. Lucy is a special kind of dog, she is very mellow, loves to cuddle and have her relaxation time. When I first laid eyes on Lucy, I was mesmerized by her soft stare and warmth. When outside the kennel, Lucy is very well mannered and patient, she is so polite and sweet toward everyone she comes across. When I take Lucy into the play yard, she likes to run around the pen, explores her way around. She engages in play with toys and tennis balls. When I sat down in the pen, she immediately ran up to me and hugged me; I was taken back at her gratefulness and love she gave me during our first interaction, I really appreciated that. Throughout our time together, me and Lucy have developed a bond. I really have a soft spot for this little girl, I love her so much and I want the best for her. She would make someone’s life so worth it, she is a queen and she should be treated as such. She is a very loyal companion. I love spending time with my Lucy lou, but I would love it even more if she were to go into her forever home because she deserves that and then some. Come see this beautiful baby at BACC Today !! You will not regret it!!
