This is Lucy! She is one of the sweetest and friendliest pit bulls I have ever met — in fact, she would make a great ambassador dog! She’s one year old and is 65 lbs. She was rescued from Minneapolis Animal Control, so she’s a local girl who’s been in foster care for about 3 weeks. She’s good with dogs (in fact, she would LOVE playmate to wrestle with!) and with dog-savvy cats, but her size and energy means she should probably stay out of homes with small kids.
She’s great on walks, great in the car, and really just a happy, healthy girl. She’s learning her potty training (several months living in a kennel in animal control makes that training a little tougher), but she is learning. She’ll make a wonderful dog.
If you’re interested in this sweetheart, you can find her adoption information here.
About this project
For the next month, I’ll feature photos on my blog, my instagram and my facebook feeds that focus on dogs who need homes. These are dogs currently in foster homes, waiting for their forever family. They are amazing pups who will melt your hearts — some are hard to adopt because they are pit bull mixes (the sweetest dogs ever who cannot help their strength) or they have lived on the streets for a long time and are covered in scars or they might be blind or deaf (or both). Some are simply hard to get adopted because they are black, which is the dumbest reason ever. But each dog that has come into my studio in the last few weeks for photos has had a warm heart and wanted nothing more than love. Wouldn’t it be great if one of you could provide that? I hope so. To see all the dogs featured so far, look here.
