In April 2017 we lost our schnauzer, Frost, after 10 years. Our family was devastated. It took along time before we could think about another dog. One night my husband was on pet finder and came across @tracysdogs_tx and he sent me the link, Lucy (aka Chelsea), was the first dog I looked at. Instantly, I knew I had to have her, so I showed the kids her picture and we all agreed she was the one to add to our family.
That night our application went in and after about a week we finally got the call Lucy was ours! We didn’t know too much about her, except her previous owner had surrendered her to a kill shelter claiming that she needed too much attention.
On September 16,2017, Lucy along with 50 other dogs drove 36 hours from San Antonio TX to New Jersey Petsmart for our meet up. Tracy’s Dogs goes once a month to different states for people to adopt these dogs and its all captured on Facebook Live, it is truly an amazing event. When we saw her get off the trailer it was love at first sight! We named Lucy after my grandmother who has passed and I just love to say her name everyday.
Since bringing Lucy home she has started school to become a Therapy Dog. Currently, there are about six more weeks before Lucy takes her test and can start working. It is amazing how she wants to learn. She picks things up really fast, and she is one the most loving, friendliest dogs I’ve ever known. I definitely think Lucy’s super power is love. She loves everyone. Every trip out she wants to interact with everyone she meets. We are still working on the “don’t jump on people” thing. I could not imagine life without her now. Lucy also has many friends all over the world we interact with everyday on instagram.
Ultimately, her sweetness, loving demeanor, and heart makes Lucy PAWFECT for our family.
