Lacey's story...

Hi, my name is Lacey. I’m a 2 1/2-year-old Nova Scotia Duck Toling. I haven’t always had a hard life. I’ve been living in California and had a good home along with my pal, Beau. But when the housing market crashed, both Beau and I were dumped in the parking lot of a mountain top café in San Bernadino. We lived there together for about six months during the winter. To keep warm, we buried down in the snowdrifts and under the bushes. The people who frequented this cafe often gave us scraps of food to eat and the waitress also saved bones and leftovers so we had something to eat each day. We were always friendly to everyone and loved greeting people who came into the parking lot. Eventually, a woman took us home. Beau was adopted to a new home and I stayed with the woman until she got tired of taking care of me and made an appointment to have me euthanized. Thankfully, someone found out about my predicament and knew that some of the dogs here are being transported to Vancouver to find new homes and I was picked to go! I have a temporary home until mid-December and hope to be adopted before then. I’m so excited about the possibility of finding a forever home with someone who will not discard me when the going gets tough or they get tired of owning a dog. Even after all I’ve been through, I know my soul mate is waiting for me. My adoption $300.

    Hi,
    My husband and I have agreed to foster Lacey for a little while. She arrived at our home last night. She is a lovely, gentle dog that appears a little nervous and unsure. Why wouldn’t she be? She’s moved from one place to another in the past year and travelled for 24 hours to get here. We had our first sleep over and she was comfortably settled into her own bed. She gets along fine with my dog but with both being female I am anticipating a little “alpha action”.

    Lacey was a little nervous when my husband came home but he let her come to him and eventually she did. This morning, she had her fist outing in the snow and was happy to get back into the house, back into bed while I prepared to go off to work. She will spend the day with my husband and in the evenings she will be with me.

    We hope that she will adapt well and relax once she has had a chance to settle in. Our hope is that someone will be happy to adopt her and give her a permanent, happy home especially once she has had a little makeover to freshen her up.

    We are very happy to foster Lacey and with a little patience and lots of love, Lacey will be just fine.
