Lucy the Coonhound Mix

Dog Breed: German Shorthaired Pointer / Bluetick Coonhound

Lucy Lou came to our house in the summer of 2009 during a thunderstorm and rang our doorbell--literally. We later saw her do it again two more times. She's just the right height and when she jumps up on the door she hits the door bell with her paw. We've since realized she is terrified of thunderstorms, fireworks and gun shot sounds. She enjoys patrolling the yard for anything that moves and she makes it crystal clear to the other dogs in the family that this is her domain! She loves all people and children in particular. Although it's been a tough road at times toward civility with her we love her and more each day. I call her my little hound dog princess.
