Lucie’s story began when we were contacted by one of our supporters to say that her friend had found a dog and her pup straying in a local village and was very worried about them. We advised her to make sure that the dogs were safe and to contact her Mairie, which they did. The next day the Maire brought Lucie and her pup Lucian to the SPA.
Lucie was a good mum to her pup but there comes a fine when its time for them to flee the nest and yesterday Lucian left with his forever family. This was wonderful timing as last night Lucie’s new adopter flew into Toulouse then travelled to Carcassonne to meet Lucie today. Introductions went well and as luck would have it a new volunteer arrived just in time to spruce Lucie up. Many thanks to Angelique who spent a long time grooming Lucie..what a difference!
Social media is a wonderful tool and it was through our Dog Rescue Carcassonne page that Lucie’s new mum first saw her. She had intended to adopt a fox terrier from another refuge in France but when that wasn’t possible she decided to offer Lucie a home. Just as all our UK dogs need to be identified, have a rabies vaccination and be wormed, Lucie did too and today she left with her new mum and new pet passport.
Lucky Lucie will spend a few days in Carcassonne getting to know her new mum and then will be flying back to her new life in Finland! What an amazing adventure for a dog who was ‘just a stray’ a couple of months ago.
Enjoy your new life Lucie…you deserve it!
We have two more arrivals. Both are female fauves and one is identified. I really hope that we can trace their owners as the mum is 14 years old!
The SPA is primarily a dog and cat rescue but occasionally we help other animals to find families. Today saw the arrival of yet another goat. Thats two we have now……if anyone wants one, get on touch!
Lucie..what a beautiful girl!
