Hi my name is Lucy! I've was rescued from the streets of Bogota, Colombia and lived in a foster home over there for about 6 months before coming to the U.S. Prior to my rescue I was beaten by my former owner so badly that my nose and jaw were broken. Both body parts have already healed, but since they never set properly this gave me my uniquely good looks and character. What do you think? Unfortunately not much can be done about my face unless they break the bones and reset them again, not sure I want to go through that. Whoever did this to me also pulled out some of my canine teeth so I could not fight off the many male dogs that would repeatedly mate with me when I was in heat. Yeah I know, this is a terrible way to live. But although I was used as a breeding machine, by my lucky stars, I somehow got away. Then I was living on the streets, alone, emaciated and pregnant. Then thats when my angel found me.
Upon examination at the vets office they found that my uterus was twisted and they had to decide whether to save my puppies or me. They chose me! They estimated that this was my 5th or 6th pregnancy in a row, having lived my whole life, 3.5 years, in an abusive home. When the neighbors found out I had been rescued, they approached my angel and told him that I was also used as a submissive dog in several dog fights in order to train aggression into the fighting dogs. So you see, I never reacted, because Im a lover not a fighter!
Thankfully some good people got together to bring me here and now Im ready to find my forever home with a great family! I'm a bit shy of strangers but never aggressive and just need to build up my confidence with both dogs and people. As a matter of fact, where Im staying now, they say Im the sweetest thing! Always ready for a good belly rub. While my past has been hard, I hold no grudges. Typical to my breed, I just want to live and have fun!
I'm now spayed and have had all my shots, Im in good health and can eat without a problem. I'm ready for a new life and new home! If you like short, stocky, 50-pound chocolate brown girls, then I know youll love me! Sadly, Im currently living in boarding and would love to break out of here. If interested in adopting or fostering me and for quick consideration please submit the online adoption application by clicking here. Please note that Im currently staying in CT, and a home visit required for adoption! Woof!
If you want to help me in other ways, like sponsor my care, you can make an online donation in my name, just say Lucy sent you, well be happy to hear from you!

LD this is the dog for BennE! I just know she could be BennE's best friend!

This is one of the most horrendous things I have ever read. Look at her face. She looks so very sweet. How can she possibly look like she is so loving after all she has been through? I hope whomever adopts her does not have her bones broken and reset. I think that would just be too much to bear after all she has been through. I wish I could take her and shower her with hugs and kisses. This poor little sweetheart deserves to be a princess for the rest of her days.

That is so horrible......how could someone do that ??I hope the previous owner gets banned for life from having animals.She was obviously just a money makin machine to them..but I wonder when they were selling the pups if anyone asked to c the mother and y they might have just accepted a story they were told about her.

I hope she finds a loving home soon if she hasnt already poor thing Sad My heart goes out to her.

Oh my god, what a terrible thing to happen! I would love to break the owners nose and jaw and leave them disfigured.

No matter what she is a beautiful little girl and I hope she finds a brilliant home Smile
