Please welcome lovely nine year old Lucy to RAGOM. She comes to us from a loving home where she had lived since a puppy. Sadly, the surrendering owner's wife passed away this past winter and the owner's work kept him working very long days. This left Lucy alone for long periods of time. He wants Lucy, who he describes as "the best dog I've ever come across in my life", to have a better quality of life than what she has now. At the recommendation of his veterinarian he placed a call to RAGOM and Lucy is now safely placed with us and being welcomed into the RAGOM community.
Lucy is a medium sized dog weighing 61 pounds. Her mother was a border collie and her father a flat haired black retriever. The result is an intelligent, lively and sweet-natured dog who seems much younger than her actual age. She has a beautiful soft, silky black coat with one white spot on her chest. She is a bit barrel shaped through the torso and needs to lose 5-10 pounds. She has been dieting since the day after she arrived and is doing very well with having some of her kibble replaced by green beans.
She went for her wellness examination on June 9th and, except for 2 items which need a closer look, is in excellent health.
That's it. Assuming all is well with the pathology report, she will be ready to go home with adopters...after a brief recovery period.
Lucy gets along with children very well. She still is anxious from the big changes in her life, so more on Lucy in the next update. She has made extraordinary progress in just this first week.
