Say hello to Lucy, our gorgeous Toy Poodle girl who is described by her foster Mum as sweet, loving, licky and feisty! Lucy is currently being cared for in an Oldies Club foster home in Beccles, Suffolk and she's patiently waiting for someone to offer her a forever home. Lucy has lived with the same person all her life, but now that her owner has gone into residential care she needs to find somewhere new.
It took Lucy a few days to settle into her foster home, but considering that she's about 16 years old and hasn't had much change in her life, we think she did very well. She can be left alone for a few hours at a time, but she appreciates some newspaper being left down just in case she needs the toilet.
Lucy shares her foster home with other dogs and gets along with them okay, but she has poor eyesight so occasionally bumps into them. Her foster Mum thinks she would be fine living with another older and patient doggie friend, but would probably be happier as the only dog.
Lucy may be able to live with cats in her new home too. If she happens to see her foster Mum's cat running she enjoys a little chase, but Lucy should be okay with a confident cat that is used to being around dogs.
There's nothing better than snuggling up to your best friend.
Due to Lucy's age and the fact that she has poor eyesight and hearing, she will need a new home without young children. She can occasionally be a little nippy with people if they surprise her, so she needs an understanding owner and a home where she'll have some peace and quiet.
Lucy's favourite pastimes are eating and enjoying the company of her human, so she's quite an easy girl to please. She enjoys pottering around in the garden or having a gentle stroll out, but she needs to be kept on the lead because she can't hear you calling her. Lucy is very good in the car.
No! no more pictures thank you!
Lucy can sometimes be choosy with her friends and she's quite wary of some men and will growl at those that don't take her fancy. She'll therefore be happiest in a home similar to the one she came from – with a single lady who has plenty of time to devote to her and give her the company she enjoys.
Some final words from Lucy's foster Mum; Lucy is a very loving and affectionate girl who just wants someone to keep her company and love her in return. She is content to potter about the house and garden and is no trouble at all.
Lucy is spayed, vaccinated, microchipped and worm and flea-treated. She has a heart murmur and is on Vetmedin and a diuretic to keep her lungs clear. Occasionally she suffers slight incontinence during her sleep, but she is paper trained and will use newspaper overnight if necessary. Blood tests have shown that Lucy has normal liver and kidney function.
Oldies Club would be happy to continue funding Lucy's heart medication after she has been adopted.
