A Loving Dog’s Christmas Wish: To Be Adopted

She's spent more than two-and-a-half-years at a shelter — it's long past time for her to have a 'fur-ever' home

A loving dog who has spent more than 900 days at the Pennsylvania SPCA delivered a letter to Santa Claus last week asking for her Christmas wish: to be adopted.

Lucy, a Dogue de Bordeaux mix with a “big personality, big smile, big fun and a big heart,” is the shelter’s longest resident.

She was dropped off at the SPCA in May 2017, with her sister, by animal cruelty officers with the animal rescue’s Humane Law Enforcement unit.

After spending more than 2.5 years at the shelter, Lucy is in search of a fur-ever home.

Last week, Santa decided to pay her a visit because the dog has been a good girl this year.

The special encounter was posted to Facebook on December 16.

Lucy asks Santa to grant her one wish this year

Lucy, our longest term resident dog (she has been here for over 900 days), delivered her letter to Santa this week. She has just one wish – to find a #furever family.Details: Let me tell you about my friend Lucy. This girl has a big personality, big smile, big fun and a big heart. When she loves you, you feel it from head to toe! She is a top-notch snuggle Queen. She came in through our Humane Law Enforcement in May of 2017 with her Sister Bella. She has made quite a few friends here at the shelter and has amused everyone with her silly antics! She enjoys learning new things and is looking forward to learning more with her forever family, she also likes agility! She likes car rides and swimming in the creek. She is a "bone-a-fido" treat critic and won't hesitate to let you know when a treat is sub-par. She loves to play dress up and is open to meeting other dogs to live with. Lucy thinks cats are for chasing, so best not to tempt her with kitties or small animals. She can be wary of some men, so she will need an adopter that is willing to give her time to adjust and work with her on her trust issues. I invite you to come meet Lucy at PSPCA! I will be more than happy to tell you more about her, my name is Nicole and my email is someday6472@gmail.com

“Queen Lucy,” as described by the shelter, is looking for a home with adults only.

She may get along with a smaller dog and she’s “not a fan of kitties or other small furry subjects.”

The shelter says Lucy is scared of strangers, so she needs a patient owner “to help me work through my fears.”

Lucy would live best in an environment that has a backyard, loves car rides, swimming in the creek and “enjoys learning new things.”

Anyone interested in adopting Lucy can contact her human pal Nicole Modrell via email.
