Hey everyone, it’s me LucyBelle joining rescue today! And oh my gosh was my family sad. But, it really was the best decision for me. I joined my family when I was just a puppy, and if I must say so myself, I was the cutest puppy in the litter. However I was born deaf and no one wanted to buy me so actually you could say I was a “freebie.” But my family did not care at all. They taught me sign language. I can sit, stay, come, and at night when I am outside they shined a light and I knew that it meant come in the house. I told you I was a smart one! Now here comes the problem. It was my bulldog brother Tank. He was older, bigger, and you could say he could be really mean at times. Not all time, just when he did not want me around. And not being able to hear I never knew if he was mad and sneaking up on me from behind. I have been in my share of bulldog tussles and me being a lady, I always came out on the wrong end. I didn’t want to fight, don’t really know how to fight. I just got tired of Tank bossing me around. My family had kids, and they loved me and I loved them.
So, if you have nice dogs and nice kids I am the lady for you. I don’t want to defend myself, but I do want to run and play , and have another amazing family, without a Tank. I am 18 months old, I love everyone with fur and feathers and even though I am deaf don’t let that stop you from loving me. You won’t even know it!
10/5/18 Update: Hi all! It’s me Lucy Belle. I finally made it my foster home, and boy was I ever excited to be here! I came in, ran around the house smelling all the smells. Jumping over all the furniture, climbing the fireplace. There wasn’t a place I didn’t check out. There is even a mini human here who has already taught me about these things called “snacks”. Foster Mom had to give me “snacks” for these pictures, she said I was to wiggly for the camera. She just needs to learn to get better action shots! I have places to go and things to smell don’t you know! I am settling in well, I will update you guys this weekend on how my weekend has gone.
10/10/18 Update: Sweet Lucy Belle has had a great time being at her foster home. L.B. is every bit of a 18 month old hyper active puppy. She has the energy of 3 Tasmanian devils, and she runs through your house like a tornado. She is potty trained, and so far has only had one accident. L B would do best in house without small children, she runs and gets rough, which is not always suitable for the mini humans. Separation does wonders and she will eventually calm down. Although she is deaf, she is learning some sign language as in sit and down. She counter surfs and will jump on your table, so some manners are in need for this pup. All in all, Lucy Belle is a fitting in well and learning how to be a well mannered little spaz puppy. More to come!
10/21/18 Update: She had such a great night at Bull-O-Ween! She knew exactly which tables and vendors had treats and would sit pretty for each and every one of them. She was so tired and slept all the way home. She got a squeaky ball in her bag of goodies and hasn’t put it down once since we got home. She met some pretty awesome people, and we hope everyone enjoyed her as much as we did.
11/2/18 Update: Sorry I have been MIA lately. Foster Ma and Pa have been super busy trying to sell their house. But all is good in my world. I get to go for rides with them, while the house is being looked at, and I get to spend a lot of time with them. Foster Ma and Pa went out on a date tonight, and I guess they felt bad I couldn’t come along, so they brought me back a Benebone. It is fantastic! I haven’t put it down, and it makes it a little better that I didn’t get to tag along.
We have also been working a lot on my manners. You see, I am just a very curious girl, and I LOVE food. So, if I see it, I go for it. If I see anything on the counters that looks enticing, I go for it. Soooo, obviously that is frowned upon, and I get told to get down and move on. They are no fun, I tell ya! Anywho, I am being a great girl, and am even learning some signs to help me understand what Foster Ma and Pa want me to do. Sometimes it’s hard to concentrate when my puppy brain is thinking about treats and wrestling…. but they will learn soon enough who trains who! 🤪
11/7/18 Update: I have sat here and watched LucyBelle with Foster Pa, and the way she looks at him, makes my heart melt. She just studies his face, and would give him kisses. This is probably the calmest LucyBelle has ever been. So sweet!
11/20/18 Update: LucyBelle enjoyed a much needed day of romping around in the yard. She is always wearing a smile and being her happy-go-lucky self.
12/3/18 Update: Update from LucyBelle’s foster momma: Well, I tried to get a cute, sweet picture of LucyBelle with our reindeer antlers and let’s just say that was like trying to bathe a rabid cat…. She wanted zero part of it and she won. 🤪😂 LucyBelle 1 Antlers 0
