Smiley Shelter Dog Has Been Waiting Almost 2 Years to Make Someone Happy

Posted on

Santa Barbara Humane Society

“Lucy” is one of the country’s most popular dog names, so you’d think Lucy the California shelter dog would be a hit.

And she is, with the staff of Santa Barbara Humane Society, who describe her as a “happy” canine that loves to give “lots of kisses.”

The issue is, somehow, no adopters have fallen for this stunning sweetheart. Lucy has been at the shelter waiting for a forever home for almost 2 years, arriving at the facility in October 2015.

She has watched hundreds of dogs go home with happy families, all while keeping a smile on her face. The staff of the Santa Barbara Humane Society hopes that 5-year-old Lucy will be walking out of their door sometime soon too, even though they will miss her.
