Welcome Lucy

Hello everyone!  
Welcome to Abbey (my mom) and Lucy! This site is all about me! 
My name is Lucy. My family adopted me just a few months back. I was found on the side of the road in Tennessee by a nice lady that fosters dogs. She took me in and reported the situation to a local dog rescue. My family was interested in purchasing a dog but they didn't want to get a puppy for various reasons. They settled on getting an adult dog so they decided to rescue instead. They  were looking at small dog breeds but none really suited them. Some medium dog breeds were too big or weren't compatible so they decided to just browse Pet finder. They saw a Basset Hound and since they hadn't really heard much about them, they did some  research. The Basset Hound breed suited them perfectly and luckily, I was available for adoption!

M name was originally Dani but I wasn't trained to it so they said that it could be changed. They thought that I was about  two or three years old which was perfect. I was spayed and got all of my vaccinations. I did have a case of parasites but I got put on medication for a long period of time so I was fine. My family had to fill out a form and an agent came to our house a few days later to make sure that we were legit and that we were able to support a dog. It was a very LONG wait until they found out that they could have me
They didn't want my name to be Dani but they couldn't decide on my name. They went through a lot of different names but not a single one stuck. My mom suggested the name Lucy and everyone loved it! A few days later they heard news that I was being loaded onto the truck which would drive me all the way to my new state. I arrived in about three days and when they drove to the kennel where I was  boarded, the panic set in. My mom was so nervous. 
She thought: What if she didn't like us? 
What if she didn't want to live with us?
Every aspect of it made her nervous. They walked into the kennel office and they got to watch another family get their dog and it almost made me cry! It was so adorable! The dog was still a puppy but was big enough to knock the woman over. He jumped into her arms and kept licking her face. 

Then they handed my family the paperwork and told them that I would be on my way soon. They gave them my leash and they went into the back. Mom said that it felt like an ETERNITY until we came out. It was well worth it though! 
I came running out the door and jumped all over them! It was emotional and hysterical all at the same time! If you have ever seen a Basset Hound run you will totally understand the hysterical part! I jumped right into our car and was so excited the whole ride! I guess the story is still being developed...That is what this site is all about! I hope that you enjoy this and our many other stories!
We are do glad that you are here and we will all follow you and see your new adventures!!
