Lucy is a 2-3 year old German Shepherd/Pharaoh hound mix. She used to live on the streets of Cairo, Egypt. She was roaming the streets one day when a group of teens were playing "truth or dare." One of the kids dared the other one to chop Lucy's legs off, so he went ahead and did it. The kids were stopped by others, by this time it was too late to save Lucy's front paw. Her back paw was saved fortunately.
Now Lucy has made her way to NJ and needs our help. She will need extensive physical therapy to strengthen her remaining legs and help her balance, possibly some sugery to repair her stump, and hopefully she will be candidate for a prosthesis.
In spite of her terrible beginnings, Lucy holds no grudges. She is sweet and friendly with all. Loves other dogs, cats, and considerate kids.
She is a little nervous when other dogs approach her stump, but is not aggressive.
