    Lucy's Info... I am already spayed, good with kids, and good with dogs. Lucy's Story... Meet Lucy! Lucy is solid black girl weighing approx 22 lbs. Our best guess for her breed is Basenji or Fox Terrier. She has adorable ears that stick up like a shepherd when she is interested in something. Lucy is an absolute cuddle bug and loves to sleep, snoring very loudly. She is great with children, even tolerating her 3.5 year old foster sibling and she plays well with other dogs. Sweet little Lucy has not had the best of lives up to her rescue. She was raised on a farm and kept outside in a pen with many dogs. It is likely she was abused by her ... (Read More)former owner, a man, so she can be very fearful of meeting new men, especially if they are wearing a hat but will warm up in the right setting and is working on her socialization. Lucy is crate trained and mostly house broken. She is not destructive (she does like to steal socks however). She is up to date on shots and spayed. Lucy will be microchipped prior to adoption.

PIease Read Before Adopting a Basenji in Kentucky
    Basenji Dogs can make good pets in Kentucky if they match your IifestyIe. The Basenji is a playful, charming, energetic breed. They make excellent family pets but do best with older children. Basenjis can live in an apartment but need lots of daily exercise and long walks. A Basenji likes to chew and should be given toys and attention or it will get into trouble. Basenjis do not do well with cats and other pets beside dogs.
