Lucy Needs a Home for the Holidays

A heartbreaking Petfinder listing landed in our inbox last evening. Meet Lucy, a battered, disfigured, loving dog from Bogota, Colombia.

Lucy has been relocated to the US after being rescued from a life of torment. We’re in no position to bring a new dog into our home, and are hoping that by spreading the word about where she came from, we’ll help her to find her way to a new, loving home. Her Petfinder listing info:

“Hi my name is Lucy! I’ve was rescued from the streets of Bogota, Colombia and lived in a foster home over there for about 6 months before coming to the U.S. Prior to my rescue I was beaten by my former owner so badly that my nose and jaw were broken. Both body parts have already healed, but since they never set properly this gave me my uniquely good looks and character. What do you think?

Unfortunately not much can be done about my face unless they break the bones and reset them again, not sure I want to go through that. Whoever did this to me also pulled out some of my canine teeth so I could not fight off the many male dogs that would repeatedly mate with me when I was in heat. Yeah I know, this is a terrible way to live. But although I was used as a breeding machine, by my lucky stars, I somehow got away. Then I was living on the streets, alone, emaciated and pregnant. Then that’s when my angel found me.

Sadly, Im currently living in boarding and would love to break out of here. If interested in adopting or fostering me please email my rescue by clicking here! -OR- for immediate consideration please submit the online adoption application by clicking here. Please note that I’m currently staying in CT, and a home visit required for adoption! Woof!”
