We adopted Lucy as a puppy from the pound in Tacoma, Washington. She was only nine weeks old when we got her and she was a handful. We had to keep her and our Yorkie, Timmy, separated for some time because she was too much dog for our older dog. They eventually became pals. She is a great dog. We just love her to pieces. When we picked her up at the pound, the form said that she was a German Shepherd mix. But the only thing she is mixed with is another German Shepherd.
