Autrey, Terrie 2014.jpg

Don’t you love living in a small town? As a military kid, I moved more than 15 times and attended 11 schools before I graduated from high school. When I moved to Ruston in 1983, I was taken aback when people knowingly gazed at me as they asked, “You’re not from here, are you honey?” At that time, I found it disconcerting.

This is Lucy, she has been at the shelter about a year. She is around 2 years old and a very affectionate dog to people. She loves everyone and likes to sneak kisses. Not knowing Lucy’s background, 4 Paws doesn’t know why, but she doesn’t like other dogs and other dogs do not like her. She would need to be in a home where she was the only pet. Lucy is a Lab mix, golden in color. Adoption fees are $65. Call 251-DOGS today for more information. Go see all the dogs at the shelter at 290 Rodeo Road.
