August 8th 2005

Arrival Story:
I saw her shelter photo posted on the Catahoula Rescue message board, along with a plea to save her. My last foster had recently been adopted so as it happened, I had an open spot. Since my adopted dog is a female, I generally only foster males, and Lucy was listed as an adult male. Oops. Lucy was boarded while the paperwork was put in order then transported to me via Operation Roger.

Lucy was caught in a dog trap in Spalding County, Georgia. Stray dogs are a big problem in Georgia, dogs are not well-regarded - they are hunting tools. If they do not hunt well they are abandoned. The person who found her in his trap could have shot her, but instead he turned her into the Spalding County Animal Shelter (a gassing shelter) to give her a chance to be claimed. That didn't happen, sadly, and no-one adopted her either. Now I am fostering her. When she arrived she was full of fleas and parasites, which along with a spay operation, will need to be taken care of before she can be adopted. The last photo is her shelter photo, the others were taken at the place where she was boarded in Georgia. In person, she is a rather small dog, only 50 lbs. Lucy has been DNA tested and is a cross between Catahoula, Boxer, and terrier. On August 29 Lucy gave birth to four male puppies. Soon she is going to her new forever home.
