Lucille – 11 year Red Heeler mix. To be blunt…. Who does this? Owner was going out of town, forgot to make arrangements for her dog, so dumped her at a kill shelter. On top of that, this sweet, sweet girl, who should be 45lbs, maybe 50lbs, weighs 80lbs….. WHAT? She can barely walk she is so heavy. She is starting on a sauntering regimen - we will work up to walking.. Anyone who is interested in a dog to take for short walks, Lucille is your girl. We would love to find someone who would give her love, healthy (and less) food, and exercise. She is heartworm negative and her bloodwork is great, so her internal organs are fine. We hope you will give Lucille a chance. She is great with other dogs. We are not sure about cats, but right now she couldn’t catch a cat anyway :o) She loves to give kisses and lay at your feet just to be close. Email us with questions at
