Do you long for a kind face and soulful eyes that will look at you with complete devotion? If so, I could be the dog for you! I’m Lou Lu aka Lucy and I want nothing more in this world than to find someone I can give all the love I have in my big doggy heart. I am a 3.5 year old, 69 lb, Labrador Retriever/Rhodesian Ridgeback mix. I would love to be an only "child" no other dogs or cats competing for attention please! I love children but I would love a quieter less busy home with kids over the age of 12 .

The volunteers call me a “people dog” because I don’t really care about other dogs- what I really love is people! I can be a bit nervous in new situations, but once I warm up I greet the people I love with full body wags and lots of kisses. I appear to be housebroken and I know lots of tricks, click here for proof! I know SIT, STAY, DOWN, SHAKE PAW, ROLLOVER, and BANG BANG PLAY DEAD. I’m very smart and would love to learn more tricks with you.. I do okay with other calm dogs especially around my size, but am not the kind of dog that needs a doggy sibling.

I love to go for a walk or a hike. I ride very nicely in the car. I much prefer suburban or rural setting to live but I don't mind the city for visits or walks I walk pretty well on a leash too. I don’t generally pull, but sometimes the squirrels are irresistible. Mostly when I see one that I can’t ignore, I crouch down in a stalker position and watch them before trying to chase them. The volunteers think I am a pretty laid back dog who would thrive in a quiet home where I could relax and spend my time loving my people. My ideal day would be going for a nice walk where I could sniff some new smells, then we would go home and enjoy some couch time in front of the tv. Does that sound good to you?

I am ready to bond with my new family. Are you ready to bond with me? Apply to adopt me today!

This dog's bio is based off the experiences of the foster and/or volunteers of OPH as well as any information that we received from the shelter or previous owner. This is very important because it means that while they may act one way in the foster’s home, you may experience something different in your home.
