Lucy Steele

Lucy is probably a German Shepherd/hound mix, but she’s more like a giant Beagle. She should fit into our Beagle Bunch just fine. And she has the SOFTEST fur!

Lucy was picked up in early January by Cedarwood’s Veterinary Assistant, who found her wandering along side the highway. She had no collar but did have a microchip. They tracked down the owner and called her. She said “I don’t want the dog anymore.” It seems she’d moved away and abandoned Lucy here. Cedarwood boarded Lucy until a place for her opened up at PMFC.
