On November 30, 2021, we unite for a worldwide celebration of generosity known as Giving Tuesday. This global day of giving provides life-saving support for Paw Placement to lend a helping hand to homeless pets in our community.
We are so proud of our volunteers who give it their all throughout the year and our friends who we consider family.

Cattle Dog / Mixed (short coat) : : Female (spayed)
Lucy was found roaming the streets by a kind soul who entrusted her into our care. After a search for o wners was exhausted, Lucy made herself comfy in her foster home, where she is learning to be a good doggy citizen!
As a cattle dog mix, Lucy is everything her breed says she is and then some. She is not one for first time owners, nor those looking for a mild-mannered, easy dog to integrate. By nature, she requires a thoroughly experienced dog owner who understands what it means to be a true pack leader and knows how to guide her brilliance in the right direction. Lucy has to share a bond with someone not merely based off treats and tricks. A person who knows the value of discipline, one that understands all that it takes to have a profoundly respectful relationship and is willing to do exactly that, is a person who has the potential to move mountains with this dog. Furthermore, Lucy is just as energetic as she is intelligent. It is necessary that her future owner leads an active and engaging lifestyle, as she needs someone who will provide an outlet for her that goes beyond just backyard time. She is not appropriate for an apartment/condo setting. This girl would love to find a human to keep up with her or, better yet, a human who makes her keep up with them. Even though she’s not the easiest dog around, we want to stress that what you put in is what you get out. Her potential is infinite and our experience with her in foster care has been evidence of that . She loves people, children, and other dogs. In her foster home, Lucy has been working hard on potty training, sharing, kennel training, and basic commands.
Please note: socializing dogs, especially young dogs, is critical to their development. Puppies need to have positive experiences with new people, places, sounds, dogs on a WEEKLY basis to ensure they do not grow into insecure, fearful or even aggressive adult dogs. Please consider this when adopting during this pandemic. Socialization is currently more difficult, but it isn't any less important, so please be sure you can fulfill this need in a new dog before committing to adopt. If you are interested in adopting, please complete an adoption application. Because we are still understaffed due to COVID19, we will only be able to email those applicants that are approved to schedule a meet and greet. Thank you in advance for your understanding if you don't hear back from us regarding your application.
