Pet Of The Week – Lucas

Please meet Lucas!  Lucas is a young Cattle Dog Mix who would love nothing more than to have a home of his own. With his expressive eyes, adorable ears that perk up to listen, and gorgeous coat in shades of chocolate and cream, you’d never guess that only 2 months ago this sweet boy was abandoned and left alone with his sister near a creek. When he was rescued he was starving and his gorgeous coat was hidden under lots of dirt, but with love, care and lots of good kibble, Lucas has transformed.

Lucas is a very sweet boy. He can be a little shy at first, most likely because of his life before the shelter, but once he becomes comfortable that shyness transforms into happiness and his silly, playful side quickly emerges.  Lucas loves being petted and receiving (and giving) affection. He also loves the outdoors, and going for a walk is one of his very favorite activities.

If Lucas could describe the forever home he is dreaming of, he would ask for a kind, patient environment where his new family could continue to help him come out of his shell. He would love a home where he could go on long walks with his humans, as well as a securely fenced yard where he could spend time playing outside. Lucas loves other dogs and gets along well with them at the shelter, so a doggie sibling would also be a good fit for him.

Lucas will come to his new family neutered, de-wormed, heartworm tested and up to date on all vaccinations, including rabies.  He has so much love to share; could he share it with you?
