Lacy

Last Updated: April 27, 2024


Date of Arrival: June 24, 2023


Age: Born July 11, 2018


Breed: Pomeranian/Bichon Frise


Size: Approx. 10 lbs


Gender: Female


Adoption Status: Lacy is looking for a very very special forever home experienced in working with dogs who are very skittish and trauma affected.


Must Haves: A fully fenced yard, a patient and gentle home, movie nights





Personality: Lacy has quite the little personality! When her foster mom says 'no' to her, she will give the saddest little face and do all she can to be able to do what she wants! Lacy is now allowing herself to be petted but likes to be near her foster family and even lean on them in bed at night! She is very skittish but is doing better at being around people and is no longer bite reactive as she was when she first came into rescue. We believe that with time and patience, she will be an amazing, sweet, funny, and quite possibly a bit cheeky, little sassy girl!



House training/Pee Pad Training: Lacy is pee pad and outdoor trained.





Walks/leash training: Lacy will not allow contact to put on a harness yet. She is too high a flight risk and has not built enough confidence yet to allow for walks and being outside of a securely fenced yard.



Children: Lacy may be ok with older kids but will not do well with younger kids or a home with a lot of commotion.




Dogs, Cats and Other Friends: Lacy is best in a home with another calm and confident dog, who would gently help her come out of her shell.


Best Home Environment: Lacy must have a very securely fenced yard. She needs people who will truly understand that she will be a lifelong flight risk and will always ensure they are doing everything to keep her safe. Some precautionary measures include (but are not limited to) always practicing gate security, regular fence inspections for any potential "dig out" spots, possibly installing a double set of gates to enter the yard, never just opening a door to the street where she could bolt through, always ensuring a well-fitting and secure harness and leash. Lacy needs a home that is truly are open to accepting her for where she is at this time, and is committed to the lifelong process of building confidence, trust and a loving relationship. Lacy will not progress dramatically in a week, or even a month or two. Her journey will be made up of tiny little progressive bits and pieces, with some successes and some setbacks. But with patience and gentle encouragement, she will find her comfort, confidence, and trust.


A note about secure fencing: While each dog is different in level of security we require the fence be of a height that a dog could not jump over (some of our dogs can easily scale a 5 foot fence) and that there are no gaps in fencing, gate is secure and the bottom of fencing has no gaps or where a dog could "dig out" from underneath.

A note about flight risk: Flight risks can be caused by many things - fear, lack of "street-wise" skills, or incredible curiosity for the sights, smells, and sounds on the other side of a fence. All of these reasons could lead to a dog looking to break free of a leash or seek out gaps in fencing so they can move beyond a fence.



Health: Lacy is a clinically healthy dog



History: Lacy is an owner/breeder surrender



Adoption Fee: Lacy's adoption fee is $450.
