Latest Update: About Lucy:
We got these two in yesterday as owner surrenders.
Here’s what we know about them:
“My grandpa passed away recently and left behind two very sweet dogs, that I am not able to care for, and I have not been able to find anybody in the family that could take them in. Their vet recommended you guys as a possible rehoming option.
I would really appreciate any help y’all could offer.
Bob is a mix, I honestly could not tell you what he might be. I suspect at least some lab but he is very unique, he was picked up as a stray so we do not know much history.
Lucy is a Slovensky Kopav and is a retired cadaver dog (we can not find her papers but were told this is the case by her previous owner)
Both dogs are very sweet and love attention, they are also very well behaved and have both received past training. they are 7 years old and in good health.”
They are indeed very well behaved and sweet, they’re feeling a bit sad/confused though as you might expect.
We’re going to keep their names –
So welcome to Dog Ranch Rescue Bob and Lucy ❤️
Let’s talk bout Lucy for a moment if we can. We took in both Lucy and Bob as owner surrenders, they belonged to the families grandfather who had passed away and they could not keep them. I’ll talk more about Bob later today, Lucy is supposed to be this breed and judging by the pictures she looks very much like she could be. I’ve never heard of this breed but there are lots of European breeds that I’ve not heard of.
Lucy is 7 years old, and we are also told she is a retired cadaver dog. The unfortunate part is not a single application or inquiry has come in for either one of these dogs. Lucy is a very sweet dog who is very calm and a little shy.
She’s lost her home and she is a little lost in the process, she would be a fantastic dog for a senior who is just looking for a swell companion but we need help finding that. When we get to work trying to find homes for dogs like this that don’t have anything flashy about them its very difficult for people to see them.
Bad news for Lucy on two fronts, she appears to have a torn ACL that she came to us with so I’m sure its quite old. She has an appointment with DVSC next week and more than likely will need surgery. To add insult to injury Lucy has not had any inquiries about her, nor any applications.
I’m just going to refer to her as bad luck Lucy. First she lost her owner after he died and the family couldn’t keep her. She came to us with nobody even looking at her or applying for her. We discovered she had a torn ACL that needs repair which will require 3 months of rest to recover from.
today she went in for surgery, was put under anesthesia and prepped for surgery only to find when her leg was shaved she had a significant skin infection on her leg therefore cancelling surgery. It will be another 2 to 3 weeks before we try and go back to get the surgery done.
Lucy is going to stay with foster mom Tina who will be taking care of her during the whole process which will end up being around 4 months. All we can do is hope in that time frame we get someone submitting an application who is just looking for a sweet, quiet, well behaved, housebroken dog that gets along with all dogs.
Lucy is all of those things but she’s in a bad luck streak we are hoping we can get her out of…
