Posting for a friend:
Lucy is approximately 3 months old and is a Boxer mix, the cutest sweetest thing you'll ever meet.
She was found on the roadside and my friend inquired at the house nearby if she was theirs. The lady replied that she was but not for long & when the lady's husband tried to catch her she ran. The lady then told her husband it was because he beat her the day before. Of course, my friend brought her home. She is not able to keep her, as she has enough of her own, but couldn't leave that precious puppy there, so she's trying to give her a chance at a happy life.
She is very sweet and quiet, loves to be held and cuddled. A little timid around men for obvious reasons, but should come around. Would make a great barn dog or family pet. She needs a home very soon or she'll have to go to the shelter. (Friend has friends there, but still.)
I cannot believe ANYONE could beat a 3 month old puppy!
I am so happy your friend took the little girl! I wish I could help but I am waiting on a puppy - exact same story. I have 5 dogs - If you have no luck, I will talk to some of my friends. Maybe I could help that way - best of luck - I'll be checking in.
