|Personality:|| Average Energy, Average Temperament |
|Health:|| Neutered, Needs Vaccinations | Adoption fee is my way of determining if adopter is dedicated to adoption and not a person trying out dog ownership. Will negotiate depending on distance. If adopted would like updates from time to time. Lucky received his name for being lucky that he was rescued from a unwanted home and being dumped on a major roadway. Also, it was lucky that I was the one who received him because I had just gone through a serial assault and this tiny puppy gave me the ability to sleep and feel safe in my own skin. Lucky Doors is an exceptionally smart dog he has always went outside to use the restroom, learned other commands within days like sit, stay, ... (Read More)and lay using hand motions. At 7 1/2 year old he still gets puppy playful and will play ball (as long as they are green), actually giving it back without chase. But, will also lay on his bed as older dogs do when told. He loves all animals, including cats. If he knows that the other animals is ours, or accepted as a friendly he instantly has a friend. For lack of a better word he tolerates children, he instinctively knows easy for young children, and play for older ones. We taught him to not rough house so a child can pull tails, try to ride him, or grab his tongue and Lucky will not bite or be rough back. The only time he has growled or barred teeth at my 3yr old is when James stepped on his paw and broke a nail. Of which I'm sure we can all agree we would have done the same when inflicted with pain. Lucky Doors loves his people and all the people he meets. He somehow know property boundaries, loves to explore his space, run, more space is better for this lovable guy. Luckyso only downside is that if he thinks you have been gone too long he will flip his food bowl and hide the food. He has also on those times found a piece of mail or paper to shredHe has on occasion shown his Jack Russell side with amazing escapes of leaping a fence, or finding the smallest whole to squeeze thru. He also likes a variety in food, so once every so many months he will decide he no longer like the food and we have to switch flavors or brands being used. Season changes come with a slight skin irritation that cortisone spray or benadryl clears right up. He is my dog and he is very wanted but circumstances of black mold and other problems in my home have caused a need to move and we haven't been able to find a friend or family to keep him until we can find a home for our family. This is leaving Lucky staying an unsafe health wise home by himself and essentially homeless. We love our Lucky Doors but he deserves better than the situation we are in. I'd love to find temporary housing until we are settled but I don't know how long that could be. So a fur-ever home is great with the right family, or person.
