By Madison-Jefferson Co. Animal Shelter

Week of November 26th

I'm "LUCY".
I am good-natured and have good manners.
I walk well on leash and have learned 'come' while at the shelter.
I am super clean in my kennel, so I may be housebroken or will learn my new routine easily.
I appear to be good with other dogs.
I do get upset when another pet gets extra attention, so I will need to be taught how to not be so jealous.
I will also need to be fed separately.
I am great with cats, just keep them away from my food dish.
I came to the shelter with my puppies. All my puppies have found homes and I would really like one of my own.
I'm a 3- to 4-year-old, fawn-colored Boxer mix with soulful eyes.
I currently weigh 40 lbs and am looking forward to getting my girlish figure back soon with your help.
I'm up-to-date on my vaccinations. My adoption fee is $30 plus the cost of my spay.
I'm called "COPPER".
I'm very friendly and people-oriented.
I would make a great family pet! I think I would get along with children really well.
I enjoy being active, but I have a calm demeanor.
I walk well on leash and I'll try to please you.
I know 'sit' and I'm currently doing well learning 'stay'.
I seem to do fine with cats and other dogs.
I'm what's called a Lurcher. That's a mix of a sight hound and a working breed. 
They're guessing my blood line is from a Greyhound.
My brindle coat is pretty. In the light it has a pastel quality to it.
I'm a 3- to 5-year-old male who weighs 49 lbs. 
I have a cute habit of sucking on my blanket like a pacifier.
My adoption fee is $30 plus the cost of my neuter and rabies vaccination.
