Dog ID: 22-045

September 27, 2022:

Two weeks ago we brought Vesta (formerly known as Lucy) home and she has settled in like family. She has quickly learned how to tell us she needs to go outside by standing by the patio door. We’re getting better each day with waiting patiently for the “Ok” command to eat and to stay “off” the couch. We’re still working on walking with a leash and hanging outside without eating grass and everything else that grows outside. We wouldn’t be this far along if it wasn’t for all the time and training her foster family did with her. She is so sweet, gentle, loving and eager to please. We had our grandkids visiting this week, ages 2 & 3 and she is so good with them. She tries so hard to refrain from jumping , she just wants some love from them. Once our guests leave we will work on sleeping longer than 7 1/2 hours at night. She barks at 5:30am and because we are trying to keep from waking our guests we have had to get her out of her crate. We are really happy with her and really don’t have any issues or concerns with her. We have a Vet appointment on Wednesday and registered her chip. We are going to look into training classes next week.

Lucy said goodbye to her foster family today and moved on to new adventures with her forever family!

Lucy is an energetic, sweet pup. She loves playing in the yard, chewing on anything and everything including flowers, sticks, bushes, rocks…even the badminton pole. But she is easily redirected with a toy or a ball.

Lucy is learning to walk on a leash and will sit to have her harness put on. She adores our 70-lb. dog and even tries to get sticks and bones from him. They run and chase in the yard even in the rain!

House training is going ok. The only “accident” today was the humans forgetting the schedule. Lucy’s vet appointment went well, and she will get shots next week. She weighed in at 24 lbs.

Crate training is hard as Lucy whines and cries when you first put her in. Fortunately, this doesn’t last long. At night Lucy goes right in and sleeps 6-7 hours. Overall, Lucy is doing well and, like any puppy, is full of life.

Lucy arrived safely at her foster home today. More information to come as we get to know this pretty girl.
