Luckee T. is reported to be 17.5 (yes, I said SEVENTEEN AND A HALF YEARS OLD) by her former owners who could no longer keep her (for reasons we do not understand). She is a plush coat/long coat black and silver German Shepherd mix who denies vehemently that she is that old. And to prove it, she runs around and demands to go for walks.
Luckee came to us looking like she had not been brushed or groomed in a very long time–mats, tangles, burrs, and stickers. She definitely was not the beautiful dog she could be so we sent her to the groomer, from which she returned festooned with bows, ribbons, and a scarf. What a difference! Not only that, the groomers fell in love with her, gave us a discount for saving her, and then posted her picture and story up on their public bulletin board.
Her stunning looks and great personality caught the attention of Carol who had adopted another Thulani dog named Sipote T. some months earlier. She asked if Luckee T. (now Lucy T.) could come live with her, Sipote, and their cat. Well, of course we said yes, and as they say, the rest is history.
