My name is Lucy and I am an 8-year-old Pomeranian x Chihuahua. I found myself at the lost dogs home recently and I was too scared to be adopted so I was sent to Chihuahua Rescue for rehabilitation.

I am getting fitter and feeling great!
I have walked Altona Beach, Willow, Wimmera River, Maribyrnong, Rosebud and Churchill parkruns.
Apparently soon I am going to be a pirate dog!
