And now a few words from me:
Hi! My name is Lucie. I’m a 5 year-old red long-haired dachshund. I love cuddles, tummy rubs and spending time with my humans. I also like riding in cars and going for long walks. When I get excited or nervous, my head shakes a bit. I need a little time to adjust to new people, but make friends willingly. I’m looking forward to settling in with my forever family and would do best in a calm environment.
And now a few words from my foster family:
Lucie is a sweet little girl who bonds easily and quickly to her people. She can be a little unsure about loud noises and new situations, but she settles quickly. Sometimes she barks at big dogs and visitors at the door, but she corrects quickly with a stern ‘no’. She seems to be “cat-friendly”, responding almost shyly to them. This beautiful girl will be a loving addition to her new family.
