What can I say except that I do LOVE Lucy!! She made such an impression on me that she is the inspiration for the Power of Chi-huahua movement. I call her a blonde Chihuahua, but maybe she’s better described as a strawberry blonde. I would guess her to be around 6 pounds so she’s a tiny little thing full of personality. She loves people and is social with other dogs. She sits on command, but could stand to learn some obedience training as she doesn’t seem to really know down, stay, etc. She was very receptive to my 5 seconds of training on the command down. She seems to enjoy playing with toys and has the Chihuahua trait of being able to play on her own. While I think the person at OAS who chose the name Lucy nailed it, she doesn’t know her name so if you would prefer to rename her, it shouldn’t be a problem. I’ve been told that she’s 5 years old, which is very young for a Chihuahua (they can live 15 – 20 years). I don’t know for sure, but I think she’s potty trained as I didn’t see anything in her kennel (though refer to my “Word about OAS” post on how clean that place is) and once outside she pottied like a good girl. She has had a litter and I actually met a couple of her puppies on the same day I met Lucy. While it’s too bad she wasn’t spayed at a younger age she did seem to be a good mother while we watched her interact with her puppies. Like all OAS adoptions, she will be spayed prior to being placed in her forever home.
