Lucy is a 1-2 year old female Hound Cross. She and Judy were found in the mountains together living as strays. A lady contacted the pound and asked for help as she had been feeding the girls for weeks but had recognised that they clearly had no home.
When there was space in the pound they kindly took in the pups and they’re now safe and waiting for their chance to find their happily ever after. It’s unclear if Lucy and Judy have ever had a home before, but we assume they’re probably sisters.
They get along really well and although it would be amazing to find them a home together, we appreciate this could well hinder their chances. The girls are also fantastic with other dogs, so as long as they’re rehomed alongside friendly resident dogs who can show them the ropes, they will do just fine.
The longer they stay in the shelter, the more difficult it will become for them to adapt to forever homes, so we need to give them the strongest chance of being adopted. She is a little more confident than Judy and tends to lead the way. They are both very affectionate and gentle when they’re comfortable with people, but they both get shy around strangers and in unfamiliar situations.
We think that it will be a while before Judy and Lucy are ready for daily walks, and they would definitely be better suited to a more calm home atmosphere. We’re looking for semi-rural homes with access to a garden for both girls, and we definitely feel they’d be happier with canine pals.She and Judy don’t have a bad bone in their bodies and are so, so sweet with everyone they meet.
Their ideal adopters should be patient, understanding, and recognise they need to take their integration at a slow and steady pace. Rushing them will only make them shut down and get scared. Because of their initial shyness we’re looking for homes without young children, and they have not been tested with cats either.
They wouldn’t fare well in an urban location, but in the right homes we know these two will just blossom. They have such kind hearts and loving, loyal natures, so once they’ve come out of their shells a little more we know they’re going to be amazing companions. She is currently in Cyprus and has a clean bill of health. She is ready to travel once she finds her forever home and you can see her wiggling for attention here.
