Happy Go Lucky!
Lucky’s foster mom says he has a very calming presence, as he is a big dog but makes you the center of his world! He wants to be with his person at all times, whether it’s at home or out running errands. People are drawn to Lucky when they see him out and about because he’s so cute, so big, and so well behaved! He likes to meet new people as long as his person is there to make him feel safe.
As a puppy, Lucky suffered abuse but was rescued by a family at 6 months of age. Sadly, his family can no longer keep him and has asked Doodle Dandy to help find him a new home. Because of the abuse, Lucky is still very timid, although his amazing foster family has made huge strides with him. He loves women, but it will likely take him longer to bond with the men in the house, so patience and continued training will be crucial. Lucky has not been around small children, but because of his size, we recommend older kids.
He loves his toys and will carry one outside with him to play, to go on a walk or just to go potty. When he hears “let’s go!” he grabs a toy and jumps in the car! He doesn’t want to be left behind, and does have some separation anxiety, which he’s been working on with a trainer. To ease the transition to his new home, Doodle Dandy will provide Lucky and his family two training sessions.
Lucky is very calm indoors, but does love to run an play outside, so he’ll need a secure yard. He’s a known escape artist, so a secure, six-foot fence is a must. He would do great with another large dog to play with, and he’ll give a cat its space as long as the cat tells him who’s boss!
This sweet boy is approximately 2 years old and weighs 78 pounds. He has a medium, wiry coat and will shed, but he loves to be brushed, so that will help minimize shedding. He’s up to date on all shots, heartworm negative and on prevention, and microchipped.
His adoption donation is $500.
