Breed: Labrador/Chihuahua X
Age: 1 year
Welcome to the Pawsitive Change program Lucky!
Lucky is one of the happiest dogs on the planet! He loves to meet people, go places and just spend time exploring. He is energetic and loves to play with his foster brothers who are several pounds larger than his 28 pound frame. That is no concern for him! He will take two on at once - ever optimistic he is about life.
Lucky had a rough start as he was dropped off at the shelter with a broken leg. It was decided after several consults that he could keep his leg since surgery was not an option by the time Marley's Mutts was able to take the little guy into rescue. He never lets his leg slow him down - he is up for any kind of exercise and play.
Lucky is crate trained, is not an escape artist, has no separation anxiety, rides well in the car and is social with everyone. With lots of observation and positive reinforcement he was house trained in his foster home. He walks pretty well on leash and knows all his basic commands. He would be best in a home with another playful young dog who will run out some of his energy. Due to his age, he is still very puppy at times and would do best in an active home. Lucky has been living with two cats. It took some time to get him used to cats, but now he is off leash and comfortable with both of them. He was actually quite terrified when he first saw them.
Lucky will graduate from the prison program in February. He’d love to have and active family to go home to. If you’re looking for a compact hiking and exercise buddy apply to make Lucky part of your family.
