My Story

Date into Rescue: 2/21/2018 - Lacey was adopted in 2018 but in December of 2020, the family of Lacey's owner contacted us. Their mother could no longer care for Lacey and they were not able to provide a home either. Lacey returned to us 12/30/20.  

Reason for being in rescue: The first time here, Lacey was found as a stray in NC and landed at a shelter. We placed her (see above) and she returned due to the health of her owner. 

Special Needs: Lacey had mammary tumors removed in March 2018 when she was spayed. She had a dental when she came back to us as sadly dental care had been neglected. She lost several teeth.  Lacey does not appear to hear well.  Like many ladies "of a certain age" Lacey does need to have access to the facilities frequently. There is no physical reason for her frequent bathroom trips, it's just part of who she is (and we ladies understand about older bladders!). Lacey is a senior girl.  Her mammary tumors have returned, but given her age and overall condition we do not recommend surgery. Her rear left leg gives her issues and at times she will not use it. She has responded well to pain medicine. Again, given her age any sort of surgical intervention is not recommended.

What kind of home would be best for me: Lacey is a sweet, quiet girl. She is looking for a quiet home where she can be someone's quiet companion. Lacey will be happy as the only dog in a home or in a house with another quiet dog. She is indifferent to cats. Lacey has never lived with children. Lacey is looking for a quiet home that will offer her end of life comfort and care. We imagine this beautiful girl has quite the bucket list and is eager to live it out!

What is my personality like: Lacey is an absolute sweetheart. She loves to cuddle and play. Lacey

Lacey isn't real big on basic obedience cues like sit or stay but I think part of this is her hearing.  She is very attuned to visual and can see and smell a treat from a long ways off.  With a little patience and plenty of attention this little girl is really going to thrive. Lacey would be fine in a house with other animals.

Lacey is a quiet girl that sleeps a lot. She is looking for her hospice home.

How do I act when I first meet new people: Curious and gentle

Tips and Tidbits: Lacey's estimated birthday is 2/24/2009

House trained: Dogs can be house trained if they are in the right environment and are allowed to follow a schedule as long as a physical reason doesn't keep them from being trained.  A dog house trained in my home may not be in yours. We will help you teach your new dog this necessary skill and based on your schedule.

Potential Adopters

Please note - we do not ship or transport our dogs. If you are interested in adopting a dog, take a look at the distance between the dog's location and your location and make sure you are able to make the trip.

Thank you for your interest in a dog who needs a new home. This description contains all that we currently know about this dog. We have no perfect dogs - but many of our dogs have proven to be perfect for a certain someone. We urge all of our potential adopters not to fall in love with a picture. When screening applications, we look at the entire home and then make suggestions based on what would be a good fit for your home. You are not being screened for a specific dog although we are looking to see what type of dog interests you - poodles or non poodles, age, temperament, personality, etc. Our goal is to match you with the best possible pet for you and your home. We want to create furever families.

Thank you for considering CPR!
